Tesla Sustainability Actions


Reducing Carbon Emissions

We are often asked if electric vehicles (EVs) are more sustainable than internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles. The environmental impact of zero-emission transport and energy products, like the products that Tesla produces and sells, is undeniably more positive than the greenhouse gas-emitting alternatives.


Energy Efficiency

Tesla vehicles are known to have the highest energy efficiency of any EV built to date. The energy efficiency of Tesla vehicles will continue to improve further over time as we continue to improve our technology and powertrain efficiency. This way, we will minimize cost for our customers as well as reduce the carbon footprint per mile driven.


Battery Recycling

Tesla's battery packs are designed to outlast the car. Vehicles get scrapped after roughly 130,000 to 200,000 miles of usage, depending on the region. Based on our fleet data, battery degradation of Tesla vehicles which have achieved this type of mileage was only ~ 10%. Most batteries that Tesla recycles today are pre-consumer, coming to us through R&D and quality control. None of our scrapped lithium-ion batteries go to landfilling, and 100% are recycled.
