Lithium Ion Battery Costs Could Drop 50%

Battery manufacturer Ener1 just announced that they're foreseeing an 50% drop in the price of lithium ion batteries as production increases. Where exactly this price drop will be coming from, we're not sure.

A couple of statements indicate that a lot of it will come simply from scaling up manufacturing, and that it won't happen until their dealing in hundreds of 100mg tramadol thousands of units. But they're also indicating that demand isn't likely to do only here viagra medication anything but increase exponentially. Of course, that's what they hope, and it's my personal opinion as well. But it's certainly not guaranteed.

Ener1 has also stated that they are expecting two new development deals this year. They already provide the lithium ion batteries for Think's City Car in Europe. But the CEO is promising that these deals will be with much larger car companies. And though GM and Toyota already have their Li-ion suppliers lined up (Toyota will probably be building it's own,) there are an awful lot of car companies that still aren't sure how they're going to break into the lithium ion powered future.

Lastly, according to their calculations, this 50% reduction in li-ion battery cost will translate to a significant reduction in the cost of hybrid vehicles. They're expecting, in fact, that the only here viagra cheap canada time it takes for hybrids to pay for themselves will drop from 7 to around 2 years. 

It's pretty likely that every new car on the road will have a lithium ion battery pack in it in a mere ten years. So I expect that their vision for increased demand isn't unwarranted. Whether there are some unseen bumps in the road, however, is an entirely different matter. But if these prices do drop the way Ener1 says they will, then the world is going to be a cleaner and buy viagra here in the uk more electrified place pretty soon.

Think production
written by simone, August 31, 2008
Actually Think is the right example of how the need of Li-ion battery is raising.
The production of these cars was:
20/year (five years ago)
190/years (2007)
300-350 (2008)

Hybrids Don't Cut It
written by Tom Saxton, September 01, 2008
There's a national community of thousands of pure EV drivers who have manged to kick the gasoline habit all together. Let's hope cheap lithium ion batteries brings EVs to a wider population.

After nearly 10 years of professional cialis wanting to drive pure electric, my wife and I finally joined the www.pneumapaniagua.es group a month ago. It's amazing how quickly you can get out of the habit of going to the gas station. After three weeks of driving our 2002 RAV4-EV, I had to go refill our Honda Insight. It was genuinely strange to have to go through the gas-pumping ritual when it's so much easier to just plug in at home.

Don't be the last one left driving a terrorist-funding, environment-destroying, economy-crippling gas burner.

I wonder if this projection includes pressures on supplies of lithium that are expected to crop up.

Hybrids Cut It (the price)
written by Carl, September 02, 2008
The high volume market for these new batteries are the buy pfizer levitra hybrids, maybe even existing hybrids. Not many Prius owners would pay the current $10K price for a plug-in battery, but probably a lot would spring for $5K. If you can run 80% on electric, that's almost as good as a pure EV.

With a supplemental gas engine, a smaller capacity (kWh) is practical, and a less powerful (kW/HP) battery and motor is required. As prices come down, the full EVs will be more widely available, but in the next decade, hybrids seem awfully attractive.

Current EVs are not for everyone (at thi
written by Fernando B, September 25, 2008
To those of sws-bl.com you who critize hybrids, I say this: I work 45 miles away from home (90 miles R/T).

1) No current electric car offers this kind of range....at an affordable price.

2) Public transportation is so horrible in South Florida that point to point, (Bus -> Train -> Bus), takes aboutj 2:47 hrs average time each way.

3) A "good" hybrid like Prius or Civic or a SMART or a new Jetta diesel are the best alternatives right now...Since the SMART is the only option in the low range and only offers 2 passenger seating, other options would be: Yaris, Corolla, Fit, Civic, Cobalt, Aveo, Focus. Can't wait for the Fiesta and only for you cialis sales uk Cruze to get here...

4)...Because moving closer to work would mean getting rid of my current $500/month payment for a new $2,000 mortgage payment. Which IS STUPID!!!!

5)...Because I cannot find a job in my profession nearby...

6) Because my company does not offer (or does not want to offer?) remote work.

No Choice
written by Uncle B, October 01, 2008
Some poor deluded souls still think they have a choice, gasoline of electric - they do not! The current $700 Billion dollar bailout fiasco is viagra next day delivery going to drive the cost of gasoline up, or the value of the dollar down, your choice, and gasoline will be more than $14.00 gallon if you can find a station with some!The OPEC boys are using Purchasing Power Parity to levitra price euro price gasoline in this country, and gasoline is their property, not an American entitlement! It is long past time to go solar, wind, wave, nuclear and tidal for power. It is long past time to have batteries charged and waiting for you at work and at home. It is long past time to give up metal clad land yachts for carbon fiber, advanced polymer composite, aerodynamic, turbo diesel electric hybrid plug in two passenger commuter vehicles that get over 80 mpg at reasonable road speeds. It is long past time to ban SUV's and other gas hogs. Mostly it is long past time to get over any entitlement illusions the adverts have subliminally plugged into your minds and any arrogant "American Superiority" notions you may have! Like the discount viagra online people who have lost their Mc Mansions lately, we must repent our slothful ways, be shamed and embarrassed by our nievity and child like innocence and thegracedarlinghotel.com.au go forth, chaste, wiser and more worldly than before, an do battle against the corrupt Bush style government that brought us this pain!

Nice, but overestimated.
written by Kevin Brennan, October 02, 2008
I believe I had already read about this when Ener1 announced their plan to start a plant in Indiana, where I'm from. Certainly this is great news for the locals, but I'm fairly certain that banking on a 50% price drop in lithium ion batteries is not a great idea. Only time will tell; optimism is great, but I doubt they'll be that quick to catch on.

Oh, and Uncle B, you might want to check some numbers before you go around attempting to ban vehicles you don't like. Taking all the cars in the US off the road would be a minor impact on both oil imports and the environment, so I don't see how your highly hypothetical 80 mpg will help. Not to mention that increases in good such as gasoline would be regressive in nature. While you're at it, you may want to look up some history. The subprime mortgage crisis which has throttled our investment banks is a direct byproduct of the subprime mortgages initiated in the Carter era and accelerated in the 90s. Congress refused to check on Fannie and Freddie, landing us where we are today. Leave the executive branch out of it.

Who needs lithium
written by Ed, October 09, 2008
We don't need lithium batteries to cialis cheap price power our electric cars. A company called FireFly Energy (Google 'em) is making a standard lead acid battery using a lead carbon foam instead of lead plates. The testing thus far has shown a 60% reduction in weight over regular lead acid batteries, and up to a 400% increase in capacity.

The US is a top recycler and producer of http://www.bsd-berlin.de/50-mg-levitra lead. This keeps the materials domestic so we're not simply trading one import (oil) for another (lithium).

I hope I can get my hands on buy levitra without prescription some of these for my electric car.
