The Future Is Here With Lithium Technology: Tesla Model X P90D - The Best SUV Which Happen To Be Electric.




  The future is here, this is why all cars will be electric - they are just better! Tesla Model X is the best SUV on the market, which happen to be electric. Now we have to make affordable real electric cars and they coming already this year with GM Bolt and Tesla Model 3. Lithium is the magic metal at the very heart of this energy rEVolution.




 International Lithium is building vertically integrated lithium business with Ganfeng Lithium. 









Support The Troops: Stop Oil Wars And Go Electric - New 2016 Tesla Model X SUV Veterans Program!


 Elon Musk and his Team at Tesla Motors is not only changing the world, when any wars for Oil will be very hard to justify any more, but helping those who has already paid their duty and, as it always happens, are totally forgotten. Support veterans, buy electric cars from Tesla!





Lithium Race: Will Price War Between GM Bolt And Tesla Model 3 Bring Us Mass Market For EVs?




  Finally, GM Bolt is out as production model at CES 2016! What is even better: GM promises to deliver now 200 miles with around $30k price tag! We are getting to my 20/200 EV mass market formula now: when $20k buys you BMW 2 type EV with 200 miles range. The first Price War in the Electric Space is officially on now! GM Bolt is priced "around" $30k and is challenging Tesla Model 3 to be unveiled at Geneva Auto show in March this year. Elon Musk will easily match performance of GM Bolt, in my personal opinion. Tesla can deserve even price premium to GM Bolt: next move from Elon Musk will be very interesting - will he go for the bold statement and the market share by matching GM Bolt at $30k price tag instead of $35k?




  Later, Gigafactory will allow Elon Musk to be more aggressive with pricing with the increased volume, but what will be Tesla's move now? GM Bolt is supplied by LG Chem with lithium batteries: it will be very interesting to know the price and whether LG Chem is going for the market share as well now by selling lithium batteries below cost. I have never heard that LG Chem is working on the next stage of Lithium Solid State Batteries, can somebody help me here, please?
 Lithium Solid State Batteries can be the largest secret around Gigafactory and Tesla Model 3 future. If Elon Musk is really working on it now and will be able to commercialise it - we can talk about $100/kWh lithium battery cost, when 50 kWh lithium battery for Tesla Model 3 will be costing only $5k and will provide at least 200 miles range!




  I am digging out other details about GM Bolt: so far it looks like that production will start this year, which is less assuring than October 2016 promise before; performance is not very sporty, Tesla will definitely have the better performance here. Charging time is 1 hour for 80% of capacity - is great news, we just have to clarify at what kind of charging station. Tesla Model S and X can be charged now to 80% capacity in 20 min at Tesla Supercharger, which is free to use.
  All in all, we are turning the new page in the history of humankind, when $30k can buy you an Electric Car with 200 miles range. Translation: average cost of a new car in U.S. has reached $31,252  in August 2015! It means that now you can choose to drive electric by buying a new car, which is cheaper than the average price paid for vehicle in U.S. Tesla will bring here the performance unmatchable by ICE cars in the same class. Welcome to the future, it is Electric and let's Price Wars in Electric Space bring us all electric cars very soon. It is interesting, what is Apple doing now apart from sliding below $100? The things to watch: BYD and Foxconn in China now.
  International Lithium strategic partner Ganfeng Lithium is supplying lithium materials to LG Chem.


Future Of Building Lithium Supply Chains For Robots: ILC and Ganfeng J/Vs And The Largest Auto Market In The World In China.





  "As we are discussing here, Lithium Technology will power us for the next 50 years and after that Robots. If you look into the real advance in the Silicon Valley these days it is not about just Cars being fully Electric and autonomous very soon.Silicon Valley giants like Apple, Google, Tesla, Amazon, Facebook, Twitter and Uber among others are going for the real change not only in the $10 Trillion market related to the automotive sector, but they are igniting the tectonic shift in our civilisation. Robots are coming.
  As Apple was never really making just another mobile phone, but the very powerful computer in you palm - so is Silicon Valley is going now for the Robots and autonomous electric cars are just the next stepping stone. This brilliant analysis was presented at The Energy Gang podcast by Anand Shah. I concur with it looking at what I can see in the latest technology trends.
  Asia is taking the very important lead in this space as well. China is not only leapfrogging directly into the Lithium Energy Space with Electric Cars and Solar, but building the advanced materials base for this new Energy rEVolution. Panasonic, Nissan, Toyota, NEC, Sony, Samsung, Huyndai, LG Chem and others are staking its own place in electric cars now. China is the largest Lithium Market in the world already, moving to claim the largest Lithium Battery Producer title and Electric Cars in China will become the largest World's EV market early in the next year.
  Listen to that podcast, read the article about LG Chem and do your own research. Numerous companies are building Lithium Batteries facilities now in China: LG Chem, BYD, Boston Power (Ganfeng Lithium has 10% stake), Foxconn, Samsung, A123 - which will exceed even Tesla Gigafactory production capacity! 17 start ups only this year are trying to capitalise in lithium batteries market on the "War on Pollution" announced by China and state-level plan to build new strategic industry - Electric Cars. Read more."
