where one person wrote a relentlessly inaccurate answer saying EV batteries couldn’t be recycled, and supported it with numerous citations that, when you read them, talked about the difficulty of recycling consumer alkaline batteries, not EV lithium batteries.I’ve seen it in anti-Tesla hit pieces.

Fact is, EV lithium ion batteries are highly recyclable, and Tesla has even created a huge recycling program. The metals in a lithium ion

Car battery packs aren’t expensive because Elon Musk is sitting in his office stroking a white cat and saying “ho ho ho, let’s soak the people on battery packs!” They’re expensive because the materials inside them cost a lot of money.
