Where would we be if the progress in SOME countries hadn't countered others?
In 2030 it could be competitive with 2020 prices of solar and wind? That seems to be the cost of production only. What about the infrastructure to compress, deliver and pump it into vehicles etc? How cheap and durable will the fuel cells to use it be? Hydrogen will have it's uses, but they will remain limited.
Partial recovery? No, full on resurgence.
" level 3 promised by Christmas with no fake claims " What do you say we just wait and see. Until then it is all conjecture.
Maybe they did like...calculations? Maybe they calculated that batteries had the range for coastal work, and longer ranges could be serviced with the addition of the hydrogen fuel cells mentioned?
Many Tesla models are limited to 155 mph (250 kph.) and the upcoming Roadster will do 250+ MPH (402 kph.) and many other makes of EVs also do that, so I don't know WHAT your are saying GasperG.
The country has been closed down for the last 11% of the year....coincidence?
Is this for EV battery packs only? Can they take AA, AAA, and button batteries?
The roadmap has to be continued research to get away from natural gas as a source and use renewable energy and other bio sources to get it from sea water.
What's next? Will they change their logo to a stylized 'T' and rename their Ceo 'Elon'?
So it could be used as a combustion heater in electric cars in cold climates.
Good, now let's see product at commercial scale and competitive prices.
It would be interesting to compare renewable performance to fossil fuel performance through the next 2-3 years.
This would an electric future drastically more efficient. The distributed renewable resources delivered without loss add a huge advantage when locating where the resources are and delivering to where the demand is.
That range is on the WLTP scale no doubt.
LNG and CNG are a poor half step. Straight to electrification. There are plenty of examples now that it works. UPS has ordered 10,000 electric vans and Amazon has ordered 100,000.
Meanwhile cities are banning fossil fuels and electric trucks are growing in number. Who thinks that was a good decision?
Andrew Wheeler flew over the cuckoo's nest.
Fine, but it requires the build out of a massive infrastructure that would take decades to cover limited geofenced areas. Autonomous vehicles are just that, autonomous. They can go anywhere. Drop them in the middle of Africa and they can see the road and follow it and everything around.
Very encouraging. Add this to carbon free steel production and we start getting somewhere.
Remember the kickback when seat belts were first introduced? Or airbags?
Probably heavier now with batteries. This will be fun to watch.
