There is a chance for a good (lengthy) 2nd life for use a solar stores for domestic use.
But that is not eco friendly if you have to scrap off the car to get the battery pack.
If the battery pack life is supposed to be (say) 10 years it is probable that in 6 years a better pack will be available so it should be possible to upgrade at a moderate cost (above the new battery price) and release the 'old' pack for repurposing without scrapping the vehicle, which looking at that vid, seems likely with that arrangement.
It seems the outer casing of the battery pack is the actual floor of the car. Once this is disturbed the whole body needs re-jigging and would be insurance classed as a write off.
When arguing with a fool, be sure the other person is not doing the same thing.
