Electric Rickshaw Uses Old Audi E-Tron Batteries

Electric Rickshaw Uses Old Audi E-Tron Batteries

Old EV batteries still present a problem, but Indian non-profit startup Nunam has thought of one way to make use of them. They’ve collaborated with Audi to use them in, of all things, electric rickshaws. They make use of old battery modules directly from Audi E-Tron electric SUV prototypes. While they might not work for cars anymore, the remaining juice is more than sufficient to power lighter, smaller vehicles like rickshaws. There are only three of them right now, and they will be used to benefit a non-profit. These rickshaws are also a precursor to very original uses of old EV batteries, including third-life uses like powering lighting, as well as other potential efforts.
