To The Future

I’m hoping for a better future:“Over the past decade, battery costs have seen a dramatic drop — from over $1,000 per kilowatt-hour in 2010 to around $156 per kWh in 2019, according to BloombergNEF. That’s getting very close to the “magic number” of $100/kWh that many believe will bring EVs to price parity with legacy vehicles, and end the Oil Age.”

  • one without Trump
  • one without Global Warming
  • one with more EVs
I know. I’m dreaming, but it’s OK to dream isn’t it? Getting rid of Trump is not a sure thing but better EVs is given that more companies are making them and investing a lot in designing what people need, especially bigger and better batteries. I think EVs already are on price parity with gas-guzzlers if one considers the cost of fuel and maintenance over the life of the vehicle. Lowering the price of batteries just shortens the break-even year. For the typical EV today, it’s about year eight. Soon it will be year five. It’s all good. Can’t wait for the future.
