Lithium Race To The Mass Market For Electric Cars: Tesla Model 3 Driven Around Gigafactory.

  Motor Trends has made a very symbolic video of two most important elements of The Next Big Thing - Energy rEVolution. Tesla Model 3 will bring us mass market for electric cars and Tesla Gigafactory will make it possible. Model 3 in silver looks very good, this is what I meant talking about BMW i3 being "Electric special" - Tesla Model 3 is just the great car which happen to be electric with incredible performance for its price. The future is here and it is electric. Lithium is the magic metal at the very heart of this Energy rEVolution.
  Below are some links showing you the dramatic progress in lithium technology which makes it all possible. Tesla Motors lithium batteries are at $190/kWh with all-in pack costs and GM Bolt has $145/kWh costs for lithium cells. Lithium  Technology is here. 400,000 reservations for Tesla Model 3 made its launch the best ever in the history for any product. People are ready to buy the best electric cars. Now is the only question who will make millions the best electric cars for us and fast.

Lithium Race: Tesla Model 3 Base Battery Less Than 60 kWh, “All-In” Pack Costs Already Under $190/kWh!


  "This is huge! Tesla Model S and X lithium batteries are already with "All-In" cost per kWh at $190! It is made on the very low volume and before Tesla Gigafactory. We are not even talking about the next step for Lithium Technology - Solid State Lithium Batteries. GM has reported before that GM Bolt will enjoy $145 per kWH pricing, but LG Chem was not very happy with that announcement - I personally suspect that LG Chem was going very aggressive in that pricing just to get into the first electric car for the mass market from GM. All recent developments are pointing out that adoption for Electric Cars will surprise everybody and this tide is coming to take the world over very fast. Read more."

Ireland Lithium For Europe: ILC And Ganfeng - Germany Plans $1.4 Billion In Incentives For Electric Cars.

 This is really big news for us at International Lithium and Ganfeng - finally Germany is putting its act together. CNBC is on all morning on Volkswagen - New York Times reported that there was a Power Point Presentation in 2006 how to cheat on emissions. It is only the beginning of AutoGate - all autos cannot comply with any limits in the real driving conditions. Now Mercedes is under investigation, FIAT, PSA Peugeot, Mitsubishi was rigging fuel consumption data from ... 1991! What does it mean? It means that when you account all costs properly Electric Cars are already cheaper than ICE age once with much better performance. The problem is that we do not have enough good ones.  People are buying all they can get from Tesla Motors. Tesla Model S has already outsold in Europe Audi 8, BMW 7 and Mercedes S in 2015!

  This is the real news without hype: people will buy more EVs now. Germany is igniting the EV boom in Europe's largest auto-market. India, Norway, Netherlands and Austria are all considering banning any new ICE cars to be sold in 2020s! Now the question is how to build millions of electric cars and fast. Daimler, LG Chem and A123 are building lithium batteries factories in Europe now. Tesla is talking to Germany and France on the next Tesla Gigafactory 2 location in Europe. From the last year I am calling for Elon Musk to come to Ireland where we are developing Avalonia J/V with Ganfeng Lithium. In my very personal opinion Ganfeng should be building its own lithium production plant in Ireland right at the doorstep of Europe. After Apple's melt down on the slowing sales of iPhones there are a lot of calls for it to buy into the Next Big Thing and buy Tesla. The automakers that can strike a strategic alliance with Tesla Motors and buy Tesla Model 3 lithium technology and power-trains will make millions of electric cars and take the market over. Will it be China again with its military plan to dominate the post carbon economy after this Next Industrial rEVolution in EnergyRead More.

Lithium Technology Catalyst: Generational Shift From 2 to 7,000 - Video Inside The Tesla Battery.

  As you already know, all cars will be electric. The question now is how fast? What is the technology behind this incredible drive and performance of Tesla electric cars? I would like to share this great video from Tesla Model 3 Owners Club. Now you can have a glance into the Tesla Lithium Battery Technology literally. Tesla Gigafactory is the key to meet the totally unexpected even by Elon Musk demand for Tesla Model 3 now. 400,000 reservations in just two weeks speak volume about the real demand for the best affordable electric cars for the masses. Cheap lithium batteries change everything, now we have to make millions of the best EVs available. 
  Who will join the race to mass market now? GM Bolt will give us the first test of being electric on scale, Tesla Model 3 will start the real tide, but who will make millions of EVs per year now? We have the groundbreaking catalyst in place for the lithium industry. We are shifting from consuming 2 batteries per household in your father's TV remote control to more than 7,000 in Tesla model S. Panasonic which supplies lithium cells to Tesla buys lithium from Ganfeng in China. International Lithium is plugged into development of Ganfeng Lithium Vertically integrated business in China with our J/V in Ireland and Argentina. Maybe you have missed that 28 companies in China are making 51 models of Electric Cars already? They are not competitors to Tesla yet, but are getting there. And by the way, Elon Musk is getting himself into China with Tesla Motors as well. Will we be able to build "Made in USA" best Electric Cars on scale? International Lithium is building the supply chain for North America now. Watch the video"
