China has the largest quantity of new energy vehicles (NEVs) in the world. As time progresses, a certain percentage of NEVs will enter the scrap stage every year. By examining the status quo and the problems of recycling of conventional end-of-life vehicles in China, this study investigated the potential market for end-of-life NEVs and existing problems in the recycling and reuse systems. It was found that the recycling and reuse systems’ needs should be considered ahead of time. Further, various modes and methods for the recycling and reuse of end-of-life NEVs and their parts were analysed. Several strategies for the recycling and reuse of NEVs are proposed, including the establishment of an independent industry model for the utilization of scrap NEV power batteries. This study provides a reference for establishing a sound recycling system for end-of-life NEVs and setting up a recycling and reuse platform for scrapped NEVs in China.
