Volkswagen and EU corrupted politicians have provided the best advertising campaign with DieselGate for electric cars in Europe. Now Elon Musk with Tesla Model 3 and its mind boggling 300,000 one week reservations are showing the way. Europe is destined to move to electric cars very fast and lithium batteries manufactures are going where the market is. LG Chem and Daimler are investing in the new lithium batteries plants in EU and now A123 there is on the way from bankruptcy after learning Mandarin as well. Strategic partner of International Lithium Ganfeng Lithium from China is very well presented in Europe already and now we are developing Avalonia lithium project in Ireland together.
"Mr. Kirill Klip, President, International Lithium Corp. comments, “The Avalonia project joint venture, fully funded by strategic partner Ganfeng Lithium Co. Ltd., (“GFL”), could be of strategic importance to the European Union should a sufficient resource be identified. Clean fuel technologies for motor vehicles are becoming increasingly important to the European Economic Community to tackle climate change and the air pollution crisis in major urban areas. Lithium technology will play a major role when it comes to providing batteries for communication devices, electric vehicles and utility storage systems. Renewable sources of energy such as solar and wind power will also benefit from lithium battery technologies and become more commonplace as the problem of intermittency will be addressed providing steady power from these sources 24/7.” Read more."
Lithium Race From "Clean Diesel" Scam: Daimler Investing €500 Million Into New Lithium Battery Factory In Germany.
"We have great news from Germany for all our EV industry. Daimler has figured out that they need batteries for Electric Cars! We have to wait just a few years more and they will find out that they need Lithium for those batteries as well. By that time our International Lithium Avalonia J/V with Ganfeng Lithium in Ireland can be already in production as well. Perfect timing? I do really wish so and keep my fingers crossed. I guess that Tesla Model S outselling BMW 7 and Audi 8 has got Daimler's attention? It will be even more interesting when Tesla takes over Mercedes S class as well.
Finally, inevitable admission is coming to the Great Autos from Germany. After all the games with Hydrogen and wasted billions, they had decided to advance their "Green Initiative" with the help from our dear corrupted politicians by creating the "Clean Diesel" myth. Few hundreds of billions have been wasted now again; and several hundred thousands of air pollution related deaths later they have to move to the only viable solution: electric cars. Let's see how fast they can deliver now after years of talking. I have seen first production ready electric cars in 2009 in Frankfurt from all major brands. Now with Volkswagen sinking into oblivion under the mounting legal and compliance expenses of the Dieselgate, they have to think hard how to stay relevant, when people just stop buying 100 years old technology to poison their own kids with cancer hazard pollution from all type of ICE cars.
