Who is Covered: This warranty is extended to the original purchaser (“Customer”) of the System and may not be assigned to any other party.
How Long Coverage Lasts: This warranty lasts for the first sixty (60) months or 60,000 miles, whichever comes first, after initial installation of the System. Products (whether new, used or remanufactured) installed as replacements under this warranty are warranted only for the remainder of the original period of time or mileage under the original warranty. The High Voltage battery pack is warranted for 3 years or 60,000 miles, whichever occurs first.
What Lightning Will Do: Lightning and/or its authorized service provider (“Distributor”), at Lightning’s sole discretion, shall repair or replace (at Lightning’s option and expense) any Powertrain component found by Lightning to be defective due to flaws in materials or workmanship.
How to Make a Claim: For warranty service, please contact Lightning at +1 (970) 744-4926 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or Lightning’s authorized service provider.
In order to have a valid claim under this Limited Warranty:
- All maintenance recommended in the Owner’s Manual must be completed by a Lightning certified service center (fleets and/or dealers may become Lightning certified service centers – please contact Lightning for details) within the mileage and timeframe specified. Maintenance items may include coolant fluid changes, motor lubrication, and transmission fluid changes.
- An examination by Lightning or its service center must determine that the alleged defect actually exists and occurred in the course of proper and normal use of the System.

- Systems that have been opened, tampered with or modified in any way by unauthorized personnel.
- Routine maintenance as described in the Owner’s Manual.
- Damage caused by misuse, accident, alteration, lack of maintenance or use of incorrect coolants or lubricants.
- Damage caused by over-pressurization, alteration, or lack of maintenance of the Fuel Cell system (if equipped)
- Damage or corrosion caused by exposure to unapproved third-party products, the environment, or chemical treatments.
- Wear items including, but not limited to, hoses, connectors, and cables.
- Battery replacement due to damage resulting from intentional abuse (including intentionally ignoring active vehicle warnings), a collision or accident, or the servicing or opening of the Battery by unauthorized personnel.
- Battery replacement due to exposing the vehicle to ambient temperatures above 140°F (60°C) or below -22°F (-30°C) for more than 24 hours at a time.
- Battery replacement due to physical damage of the Battery, or intentionally attempting, either by physical means, programming, or other methods, to extend (other than as specified in your owner documentation) or reduce the life of the Battery.
- Battery replacement due to exposing the Battery to direct flame.
