Tesla’s 300k-500k lifetime mileage is misleading!

I’m concerned that all EV batteries have a common failing. They degrade aggressively over time; even with minimal use.

I drive infrequently, so I was hoping I could leverage that into longer ownership. Based on Tesla’s touted 300k-500k mile lifetime I was looking forward to owning my Tesla for 30 years, but even an idle battery will rot, rendering the car unusable by year 10.

This won’t concern people who can afford a brand new vehicle every 8 years, but for those of us who want to go green on a budget, Tesla is unaffordable.
