Leading the change towards electrification

Providing future-proof solutions for battery electric vehicles

The traction battery is the most valuable part of a battery electric vehicle and lasts between 10-14 years before it needs to be replaced. This raises the key question of what happens to a battery when it’s defective? Raw material scarcity, emission reduction targets and cost considerations all call for sustainable, long-term solutions. LKQ Europe has teamed up with RWTH Aachen University in Germany, to develop solutions for battery reuse, remanufacturing, repair and recycling that foster a sustainable future.

Advancing product innovation in the automotive sector

Electrification is one of the most important technology trends worldwide and a rapidly developing global market. It includes hybrid technology, battery-electric mobility or fuel cells.

Here to prepare workshops for technological change

The technological leap brings new challenges for workshops. LKQ Europe estimates that battery-electric vehicles will require up to 40% fewer parts needed in the future. More than 90% of vehicles sold in 2030, will also be equipped with driver assistance systems, reducing the number of required accident repairs.
New developments require employees to be trained in high-voltage systems, new diagnostic software and equipment, which requires greater investment. Our innovative services, such as the LKQ Academy, and our Europe-wide training program, enables our customers to prepare for this profound change.
