Battery recycling

We have designed our batteries to have a very long life. When they are no longer required, we have sophisticated processes to reuse, remanufacture and safely recycle them.

We are working on smart energy management so our vehicles charge when energy from renewable sources is plentiful and can even discharge energy back to help meet short supply.

Brake energy recuperation

When electric vehicles brake, the battery is recharged. This is just one way in which your ID.3 uses energy sustainably, to make it smarter and more efficient.
