The CURRENT generation of battery packs are good for 10+ years, and have value outside of automotive power beyond that (Tesla owners have been tracking this kind of thing, and IIRC, Tesla themselves offer an 8 year warranty on the battery pack). Newer battery chemistries are promising significant improvements beyond that.

Four years is pure FUD, and I have no idea where you got the number from.
