Tesla Motors has announced the Model S drive unit warranty has been increased to 8 years with infinite mile warranty, matching that of the battery pack.

The Californian EV producer also says the warranty extension will apply retroactively to all Model S vehicles ever produced and that there is no limit on the number of owners during the warranty period.

In a blog entry, Elon Musk, Tesla CEO, informs investors in the company that “this will have a moderately negative effect on Tesla earnings in the short term, as our warranty reserves will necessarily have to increase above current levels”. He also comments that “by doing the right thing for Tesla vehicle owners at this early stage of our company, I am confident that it will work out well in the long term”.
