How long have rechargeable tools been around? It's still cheaper to throw them away and buy new than replace the batteries, why would cars be any different? I would say an EV with worn out batteries is as much use as a fossil fuel car with a knackered engine.As for Chinese copies, well we all know about the quality issues there!
Yup sort of agree with you. As a tradesman I never had to throw away a drill e arse it was knackered, it was always the batteries that had packed in, no longer taking a charge. It was always cheaper to buy a new drill that had an improved spec and better battery than the one it was replacing
Yeah youíre both right, and the new drill you get will have a better battery, chances are the battery will be made in china, along with vast majority of batteries. The Chinese seem to be excelling in the EV battery market. And the cost of batteries is reducing all the time
The whole reason cars get scrapped when the engine is goosed is due to the cost to replace with new or second hand, Labour being a large percentage of the overall cost, If a battery pack only takes a couple of hours max to change ? Then no need to throw away the car, In 20 yearsí time a replacement battery could be a viable option
Who knows only time will tell.
