How Green are EV / Hybrid cars?

How destructive is making the battery? Any comparisons to drilling for oil?

What happens to the battery (prius, volt, tesla... whatever) when the car is done? Can it be recycled? Maybe even repurposed as storage for a solar array? Even if it does not hold a big charge anymore it could surely run a bunch of LED lights or a water pump in a remote village somewhere?

Are there any 3rd party companies doing something innovative with all these old batteries?
