The million mile battery is ahead for electric vehicles – and investors
By Matt Bohlsen
Superior battery technology continues to move towards significant breakthroughs such as the ‘million mile battery’ and ‘low cost/fast charging’ lithium ion batteries. These new advances will act as a huge boost for electric vehicle (EV) sales and allow the next generation of EVs to become super competitive with conventional cars. The million mile battery suddenly makes EVs the preferred choice for fleet operators (taxis, hire cars, deliveries, trucking etc) and the cheaper/fast charging batteries mean that by 2022 we should start to see EVs reach price parity with conventional cars. This will lead to a tsunami of EV sales.
