Unlike your old car that had a traditional gas engine, your current electric car has a lithium-ion battery that will likely need to be replaced every five to ten years. When you do switch out your old EV battery for a new one, you may be left thinking about what you should do with that dead battery. This is where our infographic comes in. Check it out below for more information on how electric car batteries can be recycled and reused to create new batteries.
