    LOL, you have no idea.:D Or maybe you do...
    The market can go a LONG LONG way with the current state of batteries, but no one is sitting still- I'm excited to see any and all advances. Solid state really just describes the electrolyte, so lithium will/can still be a part of the battery. Mining it isn't a whole lot different than sodium, and we think so little of that process, we dump that crap all over our roads.:)

    Years ago, it was said that EV makes ICE obsolete at around $100kW-hr, and we are just about to cross that. Some aggressive forecasts have them at $50kW-hr within 10 years, but I'm guessing $70-80kW-hr by 2025 is probably doable. Someone ran numbers on the CyberTruck, and based on the $39k starting price and best-guess at battery size based on weight, estimates that the pack has to come in around $85-90kW-hr to hit the price target. And that's 2022. VW was looking at producing a million EVs a year by 2025, and they just announced that they moved that goal up to 2022, so something is happening with the battery market. And the VAST VAST majority of cars won't need more than 300 mile range- I suspect lots will be built in the 150-200 mile range.

    I'm definitely excited to see how it progresses though, and the sooner the better.

    there is NO free energy. We can NOT MAKE energy. The only thing we can do is transfer energy from 1 source to another. The only "free" energy we have is GRAVITY. Works all the time every time everywhere the SAME. So there will always be some kind of natural impact regardless of what kind of energy we "capture" and use to roll our butts down the road.
    Cool to see EV ranges going up to something useful :)
    Next i would like to see battery pack crash tests :eek:

    I have issues with a fraudster like Musk.

    I don't like people that over promise and under deliver - time after time after time after time after time after time after time....

    Taking $500,000,000 in deposits for a $35,000 car with a $7500 tax credit and then refusing to build it because he couldn't build it for that price is just wrong.

    Do you actually believe that a $39,900 Tesla truck will be delivered to anyone in 2022?

    Well it does look like a DeLorean and if it'd got a flux capacitor I'm in. I don're if it's ugly that thing dragged a F-150 Ecoboom down the road in a pull off with ease.

    You do realize that the F150 that this "demo" was a fraud, don't you?



    The author of the vehicle is a Tesla fan (he owns a Tesla), but is a math nerd and goes over all the factors that proves the Tesla video is a hack job.

    The only thing Musk proved in that video is that the 4WD Tesla pickup is heavier than a 2WD F150.
