"War On Pollution" in China produces a range of new concepts of electric cars to conquer the largest auto-market in the world. Not all of them will become the hit in the market, but the trend is apparent - EV is the future for mobility in China. Government supports this leap into the lithium based technology to close the gap with western auto-makers. Security of supply for lithium takes the centre stage in the development of strategic industry - electric cars. Tesla Gigafactory has already spiked interest to the lithium batteries and Megafactories are being built now in China by LG Chem, Foxconn, BYD and Boston Power.

Lithium Technology potential was demonstrated by Elon Musk with Tesla Model S, now is time for urban mobility solutions to save China and India from horrible air pollution. And our own cities will benefit as well for our kids! Foxconn is talking about $15k EV and Boston Power about even $8k price tag. The future will tell whether they can succeed, but we are at the tipping point for mass market for electric cars already. Our strategic partner Ganfeng Lithium has signed an MOU to acquire the stake in Boston Powerand among the suppliers to Warren Buffett backed BYD in China. Europe is the very important export market for Ganfeng Lithium and we are very pleased at International Lithium to advance the Avalonia Lithium J/V project in Ireland.
