Nissan Electric e-NV200 - The Ultimate Party On Wheels.



"The vehicle – called the PART e-VAN and powered by the 100% electric e-NV200 – will charge into Berlin for its inaugural reveal tomorrow night ahead of Saturday’s UEFA Champions League Final, before exciting fans outside The Olympiastadion prior to kick-off.
The van's key features include: a DJ booth on the roof with sound system and silent disco capabilities, a disco ball solar panel array on the roof of the van which feeds power to the van, a cocktail maker which will supply electric-inspired cocktails, two independent augmented reality screens on the side panels of the vehicle which allow users to join their own party in a virtual reality, LED dance floor at the back of the vehicle, a fridge for drinks, a six metre high light-up canopy."

  The real party is coming up finally to the lithium industry. More and more EVs are coming onto our roads and Elon Musk has ignited lithium boom again.

  News about the potential shortage in battery grade lithium supply is travelling fast and now hitting the mainstream media.


Tesla Gigafactories: Is There Enough Lithium to Maintain the Growth of the Lithium-Ion Battery Market?


Joe Lowry: Lithium Capacity Additions Will Be Short Of Demand.


"Joe Lowry is sounding the rising alert for all industry insiders about the coming shortage of lithium. Tesla is waiting for Panasonic to solve all the supply problems, but the growing demand is already pushing prices higher even before Gigafactory comes on-line! The ignition of mass market for electric cars and energy storage will come with lower lithium battery cost. Gigafactory promise us to bring the magic $100 per kWh. Supply of lithium will become crucial and its security will be even more important than its price.
  Our partner Ganfeng Lithium controls with other Chinese companies 75% capacity of battery grade lithium hydroxide now. We are moving into the new landscape for critical materials which are powering the green revolution. Stay tuned for the update from our lithium exploration programs on J/V projects in Ireland and Argentina."

  "Joe Lowry from @globallithium presents another evidence of growing constrains in the lithium supply chain. He knows International Lithium strategic partner Ganfeng Lithium very well and has covered its incredible growth in his previous articles, which you can find on this blog as well. Read more."
