Until November 2019, the German Tesla owner was using the fourth electric motor in his car. The last one already had run 680,000 km (422,532 mi). The battery pack also was not the original one. Von Gemmingen himself told it was the third one his car had received until that point in a video with the T&T Emobility, Ove Kröger YouTube channel.
According to Von Gemmingen, the first replacement happened when his car had 290,000 km (180,197.7 mi) and was still under warranty. Tesla installed a temporary battery pack in Gemmingen’s car until it could get a definite one. Von Gemmingen used it for 150,000 km (93,205.7 mi): it took Tesla half a year to replace the temporary battery pack from the Model S. That’s more than most cars ever get the chance to drive.
We have no idea if Von Gemmingen already had to replace the battery pack after that or if the car still has a valid battery pack warranty – that’s very likely the case. We sent him some questions and will update this article or write a new one with the news. We’d talk to Tesla as well, but it refuses to answer questions from the press.
