How Audi offers second life to the batteries of its electric cars


From the race car to the motorcycle, there is only one step. German manufacturer Audi begins a new journey with Nunam, the founder of German-India sponsoring, with the aim of extending the life of its batteries.

From race car to motorcycle

“Car batteries are designed to be used for the entire life of a car” explains Prodip Chatterjee, co-founder of Nunam, in a press release. The problem is that over time, the battery loses its independence and power. However, Prodi Chatterjee confirms that “Even after their first use, they are still very strong”.

Don’t worry. If Audi’s electric car batteries do not meet the needs of its car drivers, they are suitable for others. “For cars with low ranks and power requirements, as well as low weight, they are very promising” insists the co-founder of Nunam.

Thus, lithium batteries for electric motorized rings will replace those, and bullets, of Indian scooters. With the change of battery, India will also change its charging method. “In India, where the sun shines all year round, laying panels on the roof is common.” we can read in the press release.

Until fatigue

So, electric scooters with Audi batteries launch in India in early 2023. They will be handed over mainly to parties, especially women. Prodip Chatterjee explains:

Properly used batteries can have a profound effect, helping disadvantaged people to earn income and achieve economic independence – including sustainability.

Therefore, all data collected on scooters will be available on the Nunam website in a free source.

Activation did not intend to stop there. In its ecological approach, it seeks reuse the battery until it runs out. So, Nunam counts “Use as much energy as possible from each battery before recycling”.

After Audi race cars and scooters, batteries will be available in everyday items, such as LED lights for example. A project that therefore enables you to tackle the problem of recycling electric car batteries while delivering a new economy. What’s more?
