Minor Battery Damage May Require Scrapping of Electric Cars
4 / 4 / 2023
The increasing popularity of electric vehicles in India and globally is due to their low running cost.
However, a recent report shows that minor battery damage caused by accidents could make the car irreparable, forcing disposal.
Insurers are challenged by the lack of battery data sharing by manufacturers, making it impossible to repair or assess the battery pack after an accident.
Some EV manufacturers do not offer battery repair, leading to difficulties for insurance providers and higher premiums.
The trend shortens the lifespan of EVs, requiring more production and increasing pollution.
Manufacturers like Tesla are developing new designs to address these concerns.
