Electric rEVolution: Lithium Race Goes Ludicrous Mode With GM Bolt And Tesla Model 3 Production Starting in July!
Kirill Klip, Chairman, President and CEO, International Lithium Corp.
The real electric cars are finally coming on our streets. Stage one of The Tide is coming with two Electric Vehicles (EVs) in the West to start mass-market adoption phase: GM Bolt and Tesla Model 3. Both electric cars are priced below $40,000 and give you more than 200 miles range. The Switch will happen when millions of people will be buying electric cars instead of ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) ones. The demand for Mobility is already here, all we have to do is to make EVs better and cheaper than cancer hazard polluting ICE ones. Then millions of customers will start The Switch literally.

The Tide Is Coming: The Economist: Electric Cars Are Set To Arrive Far More Speedily Than Anticipated.
"We have the magic of technology in the making now. While ICE cars were becoming more and more complex and more expensive with time, electric cars are enjoying The Silicon Valley laws of dramatically decreasing costs with "The Learning Curve." Lithium Batteries are the most significant part of the overall costs in electric cars and the costs are going down as fast as 19% per year, according to Bloomberg. Actually, the situation is already much better than presented in the article below. Elon Musk has announced long time ago that al-in-all cost of lithium batteries at Gigafactory is already $190/kWh! "I do not really know" why journalists are not digging enough information to stay current on the subject. Headlines like "Electric Cars Are Here To Stay" belong to 2009, not 2017 when they are getting to the milestone of being sold over a million per year.
Tesla Model 3 and GM Bolt will ignite the next phase of mass adoption for electric cars in the West attacking the exponential part of "The S-Curve." Both EVs are priced below $40k and provide the range of over 200 miles. The price of the average new car in the U.S. has skyrocketed to over $33k in 2016 and now these electric cars will be very attractive to the new buyers. When you will consider the overall cost of ownership these EVs start to beat ICE cars of the similar model class not only on performance but on cost as well!
We are moving very fast with electric cars out of grasp by any politics and towards the economic decisions when customers will start voting with their wallets. This is the bifurcation point to put all ICE cars to rest in a decade. It will be impossible to sell cancer hazard 100 years old oil burning technology anymore. The Switch is happening right now when millions of people are deciding to buy new electric cars. Read more."
