What i'm getting at is, those batteries don't fail that often unless the vehicle is in an accident. I'm guessing you may be paying some sort of disposal cost built into the price when you initially purchase the car.

As production ramps up across all brands on electric vehicles there will be a problem with battery disposal. We know its a problem inside the industry just no one talks about it.
