MG Motor announced on Thursday that it has teamed up with Noida-based Attero to recycle electric vehicle (EV) batteries in the country. In a press statement, MG informed that the two companies will jointly work to recycle and reuse the Li-ion batteries used in the automaker's ZS EV units after their end-of-life.

MG Motor president and managing director Rajeev Chaba said that the partnership with Attero will give customers more confidence in the brand and will help them to understand battery's end-of-life usage. "We have been continuously working on expanding the ecosystem in the EV space, as one of the first entrants in the segment. The move will assist in responsible recycling and will further minimise the carbon footprint of ZS EV users while supporting the local economy," he said.
