ATW #2606 – EV Battery Cost Falling To $50-60/kWh

March 16th, 2022 at 2:30pm

Audio-only version:
Listen to “Autoline This Week #2606 – EV Battery Cost Falling To $50-60/kWh” on Spreaker.

Internet Premiere: 03/16 @ 2:30pm ET

PANEL:
Tal Sholklapper, Voltaiq

John McElroy, Autoline.tv

Batteries for electric cars are extremely expensive. But Tal Sholklapper, the CEO of Voltaiq, a battery design consultancy, says that cost is coming down fast, and will soon reach $50-60 per kilowatt-hour. That’s about half of what it is now, and that would give EVs cost parity with piston powered cars and trucks. He also talks about battery recycling, a potential raw material shortage and other topics. Chad Kirchner from EVPulse.com also joins the discussion.

Despite the perception that auto shows are losing their appeal, Foresight Research says the public is just as interested in auto shows as it ever was. Moreover, people are hungry to learn more about electric vehicles and auto shows are the perfect place to learn more about them–especially when that includes ride-and-drives. Auto shows are an effective way to reach consumers without the sales pressure they’ll run into at a dealership.
