In a $900 million recall, Hyundai to replace batteries of 82,000 EVs globally

Hyundai said it would replace the batteries of around 82,000 electric vehicles from across the world in a $900 million recall due to fire risks. The recall mostly involves the Kona EV – Hyundai’s bestselling EV, which was first recalled in late 2021 for a software upgrade after several fires. The batteries are made by LG Energy Solution. Reports said Hyundai and LG are working to split the costs.

This is the tip of the iceberg. Batteries will become a huge problem for EV use over time because the push to move to EVs is being accelerated beyond normal market demand. Corners are being cut.

This is almost $11,000- per vehicle for those who didn't do the math. That's a LOT of strip mining if you ask my opinion.

The carbon footprint and true cost for modern batteries is massive. And electric vehicles still aren't even that popular. Imagine the destruction one we're all using them. Worse, overall, than a fuel efficient gasoline engine.

Not quite energy efficient and to make all those batteries again would probably be worse than if the car was gas in the first place.
