Reader’s letter: What will become of all the batteries? How should the state reimburse the vehicle tax?

How hasty are we into the future and have politicians really thought through this with the tax and the batteries? The reader Janne asks the questions and Alrik answers – that it will get better!

Do you follow and have nowhere seen the question of where the state, Bolund and the other playmates should find all the billions of money that fossil drivers deliver into the kindergarten coffers today?

No one seems to think on it in society …

And what is it that everyone is in such a hurry to do in the future, considering that it should take 5 minutes to charge the car and have as many horses as possible under the hood?

Will all speed limits to cease? Then I understand!

In addition to that, I wonder how the recycling of the batteries has been solved in view of the writings that the founder of Keep Sweden Clean sent to the government on several occasions.

Absolutely sick what an environmental bomb, today’s emissions are a fart in space…

Follows with excitement and amazement how the development takes place.

Xpeng or what money was the question!

Nice weekend!

“The money will come in!”

Hi Jan! Yes, there are many questions…

From what I have heard, all cars in the future will pay mileage tax, more expensive in cities, cheaper in the countryside. That is, according to the congestion principle. Maybe free in Blattnicksele? More expensive for internal combustion engines than electric cars, of course, the state does not want to encourage anything else.

One thing we can be sure of – we who drive a car will continue to have to pay for it, in one form or another.

Fast charging is of course good when you are traveling, because it shortens the queues at the charging stations, you do not need as many charging points.

The batteries already get a “second life”, that is, energy storage in, for example, houses. More and more people are learning to get solar cells and then the batteries from electric cars, when they are scrapped, become a good storage option – even if they have lost a lot of capacity.

You do not even need to have solar cells for it to make sense, charge the batteries during the night when there is usually more capacity and prices are lower, and then use during the day.

When we at the editorial office, for example, talked to the enthusiasts who are converting classics or repairing and upgrading older electric cars, several have stated the same thing: used battery packs are hard currency – they sell quickly!

Recycling of metals by the way, it is worked hard on. New companies are growing up and recently Northvolt went out here in Sweden that they manufactured a battery entirely from recycled materials. I think it will be better in the future than it is now!
