Germany is the land of luxury auto-brands. Now all of them are moving into electric car space. Despite the very big incentives to continue with Hydrogen and "Clean Diesel" - after billions were spent on those technologies - lithium based technology is taking over.
BMW i3 is outselling Tesla Model S in US now, Mercedes B was rolled out and Audi is making the whole line of its own electric cars. German auto-makers are ego to get into the largest auto-market in the world as well. Daimler and BYD J/V has produced DENZA electric car and BMW has its own J/V partnership ion the country.
Germany is already the very important market for our strategic partner Ganfeng Lithium. Our Avalonia Lithium project in Ireland will bring potential source of lithium close to the heart of manufacturing base in Europe.
"I would like to introduce today one more player in Electric Cars space in China. J/V between Daimler and BYD has finally produced its first electric cars. Warren Buffet, BYD, Daimler, Electric Cars in China and Lithium - sounds interesting. Read more."
"Recent world-wide public awareness about the climate change and lithium technology advance demonstrated by Tesla Motors, present to us the unique opportunity to capitalise on this trends advancing the development of lithium supply chain. The largest world auto-market is based now in China. The Chinese Premier has announced the war on pollution and electric cars are at the forefront of this development. Our strategic partnership with Ganfeng Lithium opens the doors for our company to participate in these global development in electrification of our transportation. Read more."
Mr. Wang Xiaoshen, Vice Chairman/ VP, Ganfeng Lithium Corp. notes, "Recent news that corporations such as Tesla and Panasonic are making significant commitments to build gigafactory battery plants will significantly impact the demand for Lithium. Similarly the Chinese market will become increasingly more important to companies like Tesla in the near future. These two reasons make BLL an ideal prospect for the lithium industry."

“Ganfeng has an army of lithium-focused geologists who looked at projects in every corner of the planet,” stated ILC president Kirill Klip in an exclusive interview, “but they chose ILC to do business with. This is a big de-risking factor for our current and future shareholders. The Chinese do their homework. They believe in the geology of our assets, our management and our development strategy.” Read more.
