2. 1) Batteries are expected to outlast the cars by a wide margin

2) Used EV batteries are going to have their own market - after they are removed from cars they will still have a lot of useful life for stationary applications.

3) The car's owner becomes a power provider to the utility. They do it because it pays them to do it. They buy the power when it is cheap and sell it back to the utility when the value is higher. It's hard to say how much that will earn, but projections show that it could be worth between $1500-$4000/year. There are a lot of assumptions that go along with those numbers, though, so IMO they should be taken with a grain of salt.
