Re: Volt: you asked, "I wonder how long the batteries last and how much it costs to replace them? " Warranted for 8 years. Likely replacement cost less than $8,000 less trade-in value, Unusable car batteries are likely to be highly valued by those who need immovable batteries; i.e., windmill and solar panel owners. Toyota is pursuing re-cycling batteries into batteries, too.
