Volkswagen EV Battery Recycling Plant and Breakdown Process Video

Last month, we at Elgin Volkswagen wrote about how our favorite automaker is using a really cool newly developed method for disposing of EV batteries. Not only are we excited by this innovative procedure, but we’re delighted at the way in which it addresses the growing concern of how to handle EV batteries at the end of their lives, as well as how to reliably obtain the precious minerals needed to build them.

Well, 2020 has come and gone, and we still have to put our feet, hands and brains to work piloting our vehicles to the dealership each morning. When will self-driving cars actually be available?

That certainly seems to be the case with electric vehicle tech, which was quite rare on American streets just five years ago but now seems poised to experience a surge in popularity.

As EV technology improves, one element that has held some individuals back form making the switch to such models is the comparatively slow rate of fueling compared to that of a combustion-powered vehicle. We here at Elgin Volkswagen thus decided to look into: will EV charge speeds increase in the future?
