Car companies have scrapped their Captured Test Fleet cars for years. They don't talk about it. I have run into parts from some that were not supposed to be sold.
I think Jaguar is making a mistake here. They must young and naive in the EV world. Scrapping EVs by the MFR is not good press after all the EV1 publicity. Yes, all the other mfrs melt down their EVs too, but they don't talk about it.
Example: Find a Honda Fit EV. Anywhere. They made over 1,000 for the CARB states, and perhaps more globally. They even melted down the brand new ones pulled from the lots. It might even be collectable if you found one. At least there is an EV1 in a museum.
