Tesla Model S.
Lithium Technology is here. This video summarises the achievements of Elon Musk and his Team at Tesla with hardware and software technology involved in one of the most complex machinery and how fast it is moving forward: Electric Car drives itself. This rapid advance changes the Energy Equation: we are not consuming the energy from the closed system depleting its resources, burning fossils and killing us in the process. Now we can convert the external energy from the Sun by Solar and Wind into electricity, store it and use when we want it. Now all technology costs are going down dramatically allowing the mass production, which in turn brings even more costs reductions for the components. The mass market for electric Cars is just around the corner now.
"All automakers are now horrified by losing the luxury sedans market to Tesla Model S and can see the writing on the wall: they will be toasted by cheaper electric cars very soon. German ban on all sales of the new diesel and gas powered cars by 2030 seems to be more and more coming reality and now Mercedes and Volkswagen will have to follow BMW seriously with the roll out of dozens of electric cars.

Lithium Race To The End Of The ICE Age: Tesla Model S Is The Best-selling US Luxury Sedan, By A Wide Margin.
"And this is the real worry for all automakers, we are talking about here. Engadget reports on the disruption of the luxury sector by Tesla Model S which is always on ludicrous mode. The real electric cars provide much better performance and consumer satisfaction, we just need to have them cheaper. And they are coming very fast now from all automakers in a fear to be left out on ICE. The most important message after so many years is that it is not our dreams anymore: the best electric cars are here and customers are voting for them with their wallets. Lithium technology is here and cheap lithium batteries change everything.
Now you can better understand why any Lithium demand forecast will never be even close to the potential of this $4 Trillion disruption of the transportation industry. And after that add on the top the ongoing disruption of $8 Trillion Energy and Utility industries with Solar and Wind driving Energy Storage demand. I will provide the best conservative Lithium Demand and Supply estimation from Joe Lowry for your reference. With electric cars coming out below $40k and 200 miles of a range we can start talking about all cars being electric very soon. Read more."
