CleanTechnica reports that Tesla Model S has overtaken US large luxury car sales in 2015! This information is coming on top of the results from the Western Europe for 2015 with Tesla Model S leading luxury auto sales as well. Now we have to provide the opportunity to switch to the affordable best electric cars for the millions. Tesla Model 3 and GM Bolt will make it possible in the West and in China now 25 companies are making 51 models of electric cars already.
BREXIT DieselGate Fallout: Diesel Vehicle Purchases Banned By City Of London Corporation - Who Will Follow Now?
Thanks to the best advertisement campaign for electric cars organised by Volkswagen and corrupt EU politicians, we have another groundbreaking event reported by InsideEVs. Last year Tesla Model S outsold Audi 8, BMW 7 and Mercedes S-Class! People with the money are going electric. Even more will do so once good electric cars are available in Europe. Tesla Model 3 will make the trick 325,000 reservations in one week time with reported today! Who will be first to secure the strategic alliance with Elon Musk, stop messing around with ICE and buy from Tesla Model 3 power-trains to bring electric cars to the millions fast?
Volkswagen DieselGate Fallout: A123 Systems Announces New Lithium Batteries Facility In The Czech Republic.
"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 manufacturers 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. Read more."
DieselGate Mea Culpa: Volkswagen Planning $11.2 Billion Battery "Gigafactory", Can Use Lithium Solid State Technology.
"Lithium is getting hot in Europe now after the best advertisement campaign by Volkswagen DieselGate for Electric Cars. LG Chem, Mercedes, A123 and BMZ are already building lithium batteries factories in Europe and Volkswagen is joining the lithium race. The size of investment $11.2 billion is more than twice of Tesla Gigafactory $5 billion, but we do not have any production capacity data yet. Tesla Gigafactory plans to produce 35 GWh of lithium batteries and Europe's largest so far, before Volkswagen plans - was BMZ production facility with a total planned capacity of 30 GWh.
The most interesting in this news is the mentioning of Lithium Solid State technology. Now we have Elon Musk working on it at Tesla Gigafactory, Dyson has promised $1 billion of investment to commercialise Sakti3 LSS technology and now Volkswagen can throw a dozen of billions of dollars to fuel lithium race. The result will be mass production of lithium batteries and prices falling down to $100 per kWh and cheap lithium batteries change everything. Read more."
International Lithium And Ganfeng Drill 4.62 M Of 2.33% And 10.65 M Of 1.07% Of Li2O At Avalonia, Ireland.
"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 the 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.
