MG Motor India has tied up with Exicom Tele-Systems in order to reuse the batteries of the upcoming ZS Electric. Once the battery pack of the ZS EV reaches the end of its lifecycle, the unit will be recycled for usage in non-automotive appliances such as UPS, home inverters, etc.

Speaking on the tie-up with Exicom, Rajeev Chaba, President & MD, MG Motor India, said, “Over the past few months, we have worked towards creating the right ecosystem for our customers ahead of the launch of the ZS EV, including charging infrastructure and busting common myths around EVs.

Another question which people have is ‘What happens to the EV battery after the product lifecycle ends. Our latest partnership focuses on second-life applications for used EV battery packs, to ensure environment-friendly battery disposal will only serve to bolster the country’s progress towards this critical objective.”
