A little more on Bricking an EV

(Nissan LEAF battery pack shown above as an example)

Here is a little more on this topic and can be found . It really isn't all that bad...basically don't let your EV sit for months on end and if it is near zero charge don't let it sit for weeks on end. Regular cars run into the same issues when you think about it, let a car with oil in the engine sit for months and you could damage the engine on start-up as oil dripped down to the pan. Gas can go bad, bushings harden, etc.

Basically be smart about it - no big deal. Could Tesla have a potential issue, maybe, but that will be because of their design which is unique to them.
