AmberCare high-voltage care plans cover your EV’s battery, drive unit, and other critical components typically covered under the manufacturer’s basic limited warranty. These other high-voltage components, such as your EV’s power conversion system (PCS) and AC compressor, are critical for your EV’s high voltage system to function properly.
Depending on your EV’s manufacturer, it’s possible that a portion or all of your manufacturer’s warranty may overlap with your coverage period, which can make it difficult to understand who covers what in the event of a breakdown.
As an example, let’s say your Tesla Model S is 6 years old, has 90,000 miles on it, and you purchase AmberCare now. Most Tesla vehicles come with the following two types of warranties:
- A battery and drive unit warranty, which covers only the battery and drive unit, and is typically 8 years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first.
- A basic limited warranty that covers the other components in the vehicle, and is typically 4 years or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first.
In this example, your manufacturer’s basic warranty would have expired, and your manufacturer’s battery and drive unit warranty is still active.
AmberCare would start covering your EV’s high-voltage components (e.g., PCS, high voltage controller, AC compressor etc.) right away, and your battery and drive unit after 8 years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first.
