Companies sell all sorts of old, used, leftover, or otherwise irregular
products "as is" all the time.
All the auto companies would have to do to sell one of these EVs is turn
in the title for "salvage". Then it is just like every other car in a
junkyard -- no warranty, no liability, no responsibilities for parts or
And all the buyer of such a car would have to do it re-title it. Every
state has proceedures for retitling a car. They have checklists of
things that must be checked (no stolen parts, etc.) and requirements
that must be met (lights, brakes, glass, seat belts, emission systems
intact, etc.). Meet those requirements, and you're back on the road --
WITHOUT manufacturer liability.
