Who pays if the bat­tery is de­stroyed?

RE: Make way for the elec­tric car (Aug. 4)

Around 373,000 buy­ers have made $1,000 de­posits on the Tesla Model 3 elec­tric car.

Last year the bat­tery pack for this car was around $10,000. As­sume it’s the mid­dle of win­ter and the tem­per­a­ture is well be­low zero, we have a power fail­ure and the power is out for more than one day, a not un­com­mon oc­cur­rence in Canada.

The car bat­tery pack is frozen and de­stroyed. Who pays for the re­place­ment? Is it cov­ered un­der their lim­ited war­ranty?

This is a valid con­cern for elec­tric car buy­ers. Nor­man Di Veto, Lyn­den
