One of the hottest issues with electric vehicles is the possibility (or impossibility) of disposing of batteries after they have lost most of their capacity. On one hand, using them in electric vehicles is more impractical, because they lose most of their capacity. On the other hand, the battery is still quite suitable for use in milder conditions. These are usually stationary sources of energy storage.

However, here is another option: the joint project Audi Nunam involves the production of electric carts such as “rickshaws”, which are traditional in India.

Audi is a supplier of batteries that have already worked “under the hood” (more precisely, under the body) of e-tron electric vehicles. In turn, Nunam uses these batteries to create electric carts and even more – for individual stand-alone power supplies! The latter will store electricity extracted from solar panels until it is necessary to charge an electro-“rickshaw”. If everything works properly, such carts will allow you to move thanks to cheap electricity, without polluting the environment with dirty exhaust.

But will this idea work? It will become clear shortly: test trials of the Audi Nunam project have already begun and will continue until 2023, when, finally, the start of mass production of such carts is planned.
