BATTERY RE-USE DEAL FOR BMW UK

Battery pack hire firm Off Grid Energy has signed a deal with BMW Group UK to re-use the VMs life-expired EV batteries.

Under the deal, BMW will supply Off Grid Energy with battery modules no longer suitable for use on cars.

The VM’s batteries have a warranty of eight years or 100,000 miles. After this period the battery could still retain up to 80 per cent of its initial capacity. However it is inevitable that at some stage, the battery will no longer function at an optimum level for the car – although it can continue to serve a ‘secondary use’ purpose as a mobile power source.

Danny Jones, Managing Director Off Grid Energy said “Off Grid Energy’s business model has been built with sustainability at its core, from the way we make our products and the materials we use, through to the environmental impact of our technology.”

Prototype batteries have been assembled for use at BMW Group events next year.
