What Happens To Old BMW Batteries

i always thought the components were recycled to make new batteries, but BMW is stacking them in a giant warehouse to store electricity from their wind turbine, ready to use when needed. Called the Leipzig battery farm, it's where BMW i3 batteries go after they're replaced by warranty if it dips below 70% after 8 years.

A good read and it tells us what'll happen t future EV batteries.

Me too. I've always thought that they were recycled.
