We are taking back all used BMW high-voltage batteries worldwide – even though there is no legal requirement to do so. During their “second life”, vehicle batteries are put to use in stationary storage systems. In this way, we are integrating renewable energy, increasing stability and lowering energy costs for consumers. The best example of this is our BMW Group plant in Leipzig, Germany, with a storage farm consisting of about 700 BMW i3 batteries. In the case of batteries that have exceeded their useful life as stationary storage, too, we are recycling high-quality materials for the production of our new lithium-ion batteries.
