I think you guys are missing my point. That second hand battery is far too expensive in my view. Because so many people are using them, the prices have gone through the roof. Car dismantlers know the value of these. This proves that all EV batteries are 100% recycled.

The cells don't get "shagged". Cells in EV batteries are carefully managed by the BMS. 7 year old Tesla batteries have on average still over 90% capacity. A lithium battery lasts 100 years and still have some capacity when treated well.

Re OP, EVs surely are well suited to island environments as you'll hardly experience much range anxiety.
