EVs tend to just get less and less range per charge so value dropping to zero is unlikely. At some point you’ll realize you need a little more range, sell it to someone who is ok with having 200 miles range, and you’ll buy a new one.That's the way I understand it, as well. If that's the case, the 4680s really need to be the "million mile" solution or else you risk a chance your vehicle's value could drop to almost nothing (well, scrap pricing anyway) if the batteries do not last the lifetime of the vehicle.
There have been a few Teslas where the battery has failed completely, but it’s not super common.
