What’s sending first-generation electric cars to an early grave?

A growing number of early electric car adopters are scrapping or replacing their cars when batteries that are no longer under warranty go haywire. Repairing batteries can be dangerous. It’s more expensive and technical than working on gas engines, and there are very few technicians trained to do the work. 

Carmakers, like Tesla, often recommend full replacements, rather than trying to extend the life of an older battery. That’s leading some drivers, like Barnes, to get rid of otherwise perfectly good cars.
