Hello DD. Court linked this group yesterday. It's an interesting conversation. I agree, re-charging is the near term issue. It's not only a problem of distance, it's a serious problem charging at home for many people who permit park on the street or in a community garage. People gravitate to a car they find attractive, fairly priced and convenient. Electric cars don't often measure up on more than one of those areas.

I suspect that Court is correct that unless we develop a substitute, lithium is the core issue five to 10 years out. Car companies, insurance companies, the government and anyone developing tech for AV wants humans to stop driving. All of those vehicles will be powered by electricity. All will be centrally charged. All will be short haul. Some will deliver people, some will deliver stuff.

This is how electric cars will take over transportation. Most Americans will stop thinking of the car as synonymous with freedom. As a car guy, that makes me sad but that is a much different conversation.
