Thoughts About MG Motor & TES-AMM India Partnering For Battery Recycling
The electric batteries in cars will have a limited charging cycle or a lifetime, which will then have to be swapped for an all-new battery pack altogether. While the swapping is easy, the disposal of the old battery pack has to be done properly. As a result, MG has announced its partnership TES-AMM to handle the battery recycling of its electric cars sold in the country.
