$15,000 for a battery pack that’s probably going to last around 5 years? I can buy a lot of gasoline for that kind of money.
Wonder what the battery pack is worth as recycled material/

Nothing, it will cost the person disposing of it a considerable amount IMHO........

$15,000 will by 5000 gallons at $3/gal. That’s 150,000 miles at 30 mpg. Doesn’t really sound very cost effective at all, especially when you consider the thing has to be recharged and electricity isn’t free, and that most of these cars are also gasoline assisted.
