Tesla fined $14M in Germany for battery recycling violation

Tesla has been ordered to pay a fine of 12 million euros ($14 million) in Germany for alleged non-compliance with a law requiring automakers that sell electric cars to take back batteries to dispose of in an environmentally friendly way.

Tesla reported the fine, which was imposed by the German Federal Environmental Agency, in a filing to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

In the filing Tesla said it has continued to take back battery packs as required under vehicle end-of-life rules and the fine is primarily related to administrative requirements.

Just thought that I would add some other news. Please explain that it was administration requirements that they were fined. Probably tracking the disposal.


"Administrative requirement" usually means, they are in compliance but not doing the proper. paper work.

It's like taking a dump. It's not done until the paper work, lol.

Or they are not following laws, so they do not have the paperwork for disposal. Would think that it would be cheaper to have someone doing the paperwork for $14M.

"alleged" non-compliance. Good chance most or all the fee will be waived once the proper documentation is filed.

But no one will follow up with the final result outcome so it is left as internet fodder to assume Tesla actually pays the fine and does not recycle and is wrecking the environment.

Looks like some mods coming to the original prototype before production.

I think they’ll be pretty keen on getting a few production units out before end 2021 but I wouldn’t expect ramp up till 2022. I think Rivian will beat them to production.
