Great Vid RE.....

Last I heard they're aren't any lithium mines in Germany.
EV's may only have 200 moving parts compared to 2000  on combustion, but the required parts on EV is a bit more valuable.

I think VW Audi Porsche will push the hydrogen fuel cell power plant to cut costs vs. lithium batteries.
It's a global chess game.

Word on the street around here in the middle of nowhere is those Carl's Jr. hamburgers restaurant recharge units for Tesla's are always busy & occupied.
Just like the 1970's with gas warz. DeJaVu all over again ......

Tail waggin' the dog when it comes to infrastructure implementation.

These tourista's passin' thru on there way to the canyon always need a fresh charge on there Tesla's. We are 90 miles from Vegas, 180  from Phoenix, and 120 from Barstow.

The automotive industry will be in a range war (literally) for years to come with this nonsense. So far, it's just been useless debate.
I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why you’re here. You’re here because you know something. What you know you can’t explain, but you feel it. You’ve felt it your entire life, that there’s something wrong with the world.

I don't think this war will last all that long.  They'll all be done in a decade the most.  Nostradamus RE PREDICTS!  ;D

Fortunately, I will be dead by then and pushing up daisies beneath the SUN☼ Monument, so if I am WRONG, you won't be able to tell me "I told you so" to my face.  You'll have to wait until YOU buy your Ticket to the Great Beyond and join me in the 9th Dimension.  ;D

The new Porsche Taycan Turbo S can generate up to 560 kW (761 horsepower) overboost power in combination with Launch Control, and the Taycan Turbo up to 500 kW (680 HP). The Taycan Turbo S accelerates from 0 to 100 kmh (62mph) in 2.8 seconds, while the Taycan Turbo completes this sprint in 3.2 seconds. The Turbo S has a range of up to 412 kilometres, and the Turbo a range of up to 450 kilometres. The top speed of both all-wheel-drive models is 260 kmh (161mph).

The introduction of the Taycan is generating 1,200 new jobs in Zuffenhausen plant. “The Taycan is one of biggest creators of jobs in the history of Porsche,” emphasises Andreas Haffner, Member of the Executive Board responsible for HR and Social Affairs. Not all of these new employees will be producing the Taycan; they will also build two-door sports cars. Porsche’s aim for the Taycan is to create a team with a healthy mix of experienced sports car manufacturers and new staff. This development will also see a large-scale training initiative take place in a specially created production hall built on the training centre premises in Zuffenhausen. A digital learning platform, which contains over 1,400 training units on issues related to digital transformation and allows users to study independently and according to their needs, will also be available for the entire workforce as they join Porsche on its journey into the electric and digital era.

Ten years down the line, will the answer to every car-buying question be “Just get an ID.3”? Well, let Top Gear Magazine’s Jack Rix show you around VW’s all-new, all-electric hatchback.

Yup that is exactly the kind of EV I would buy. A slow continuous improvement rollout backed up by a company with very deep pockets. I like the chevy bolt as well. I remember a slogan for the vw bug a car for people who don't like cars... I think between the porshe at the high end and a volkswagon at the low end Tesla will be sweating. They have such a huge head start its hard to say. Give me the same range in a no flash no hype package and I'll go for it... 3 years in when the lease returns start showing up cheap of course...
If its important then try something, fail, disect, learn from it, try again, and again and again until it kills you or you succeed.

Do you mean lithium powered cigarette vaporizers? Depends. Make sure you get a good one and that it uses a lithium iron battery not the other chemistries. The lIFe is more stable and doesn't go "boom" when its pushed hard. Its more expensive though.

That depends on how they discharged the pack, how they charged it temperature... Lots of variables. Then there is the fact that Lithium packs are not no good after their rated cycles they just can't provide as much range or discharge /charge as fast. So they won't run at 70 miles an hour with the air con blasting to the max rating of the new pack... but at my country road 40 mph used in shorter hops... Their life span is unknown...

The most Hacked EV at this point at the low end is The Nissan Leaf. There is a lot of interest in aftermarket work on the older ones and the car is hackable it seems which is not really the case with Teslas. Here is an account of battery replacement on a 2012 legit and done by the dealer:

Here is my new favourite Leaf hacker:

I seriously looked at buying a used one but Realistically my kid mover is all wheel drive, paid for, and economical.  When it reaches end of life though... Most likely an electric will take its place.

Make sure you get a good one and that it uses a lithium iron ion battery not the other chemistries. The lIFe is more stable and doesn't go "boom" when its pushed hard. Its more expensive though.

It's "ion" not "iron".

typo...
They are all lithium Ion batteries... The Lithium Iron phosphate chemistry is more stable.

My question relates to the quantum effects of lithium on the ol' meat package & hamster wheel brain matter.

I've read articles that state lithium is detrimental to homo sushi.....

example: Wifi causes sterility in men at low levels. We all know the nasty effedcts that 5G will cause when implemented in our neighborhoods.
