Sustainable benefit thanks to the recycling of used batteries.
Every aspect of Mercedes-Benz e-Mobility has been systematically thought through to the end - not just the technologies and vehicle models, but also the sustainable use of resources. By way of example, used batteries from electric cars get a second life outside of the vehicle as 2nd-use battery storage devices. One of their industrial uses is as stationary energy storage devices. The energy storage devices are even used in medium-sized enterprises such as supermarkets - to cover any consumption peaks on hot days, for instance. In addition to this, private households can employ a Mercedes-Benz Home energy storage device to store the solar energy they produce for use on days when the sun isn't shining. This range of application options improves the Life Cycle Assessment and life cycle costs of electromobility.
