Withe more and more plug-in cars on the road, and more and more early (2011-2013) electric cars starting to show signs of wear and tear, used electric cars are now more affordable than ever.

But without a decent replacement battery supply, many of these early electric cars will find themselves retired while still in mechanically good condition. And that could cause a whole slew of problems when it comes to vehicle sustainability.

The answer? Aftermarket battery pack swaps, designed and made by third parties (because for mainstream automakers, battery swaps really aren’t worth spending large amounts of money on… especially if you want customers to buy the latest and greatest).

For the used car market though? If we want electric cars to become truly mainstream, aftermarket batteries are the way to go.
