Right now, electric vehicles are arguably the most polarising aspect of New Zealand’s motor industry. While some people love the idea, others pick apart the flaws until the cows come home.
One of the biggest arguments against electric vehicles is the idea that batteries are useless once they’re done their time in a car, and can’t be recycled in New Zealand.
One Kiwi group that’s looking to offer an EV battery recycling service in New Zealand goes by the name of B.I.G or Battery Industry Group, and is made up of some of our country’s heavy hitters in the electric industry.
Formed in 2018, B.I.G includes entities like the AA, Vector, Audi, the Motor Industry Association, and more.
