Volkswagen has a new strategy. It gives batteries to cars in installments

The concept of so-called battery rental is nothing new in the world, but each manufacturer approaches it a little differently. Probably the most interesting and most efficient way is offered by the car manufacturer NIO, which thanks to the BaaS program (Battery as a Service) allows a complete replacement of a discharged battery with a new one in special stations.

In addition to buying an electric car and a battery, its rental in Europe is also offered by the Renault brand. The customer pays for the car, while paying a monthly fee for the battery. The customer thus saves, while the carmaker is responsible for the capacity. However, if the customer stops paying, the carmaker can remotely limit charging.

Electromobility: What are the plans of the EU and the world?

Volkswagen has in the past expressed interest in the possibility of recovering old electric car batteries, which could be recycled and reused – for example, again in the automotive industry. In China, however, the carmaker has so far bet on a quite different model, which has deviated somewhat from the original concept.
