Since 2012, PEUGEOT has been recycling the batteries used in its electric and rechargeable hybrid vehicles. We work with several specialised partners to optimise the end of life of batteriesi.
All over the world, the Stellantis group is actively involved in this area of expertise in order to develop partnerships to optimize battery life by taking into account the entire Life Cycle from repair, remanufacturing, the search for second-life solutions, up to end-of-life recycling.
In New Zealand, all traction batteries are recycled locally using an approved lithium battery recycling company. If this resource is not available, it’s mandatory to send the battery back to Europe for full circle re-manufacture. There is a group who has oversight with all batteries imported into NZ called BIG.
