EVs will progress to solid-state batteries in 10-15 years, pending manufacturing developments
Published: Wednesday, 01 May 2019
The attractiveness of lithium metal batteries for electric vehicle applications is undeniable, but bringing about the change will require technical advances. Solid-state batteries are a realistic long-term goal and will negate the use cobalt, whose prices remain volatile.
Electric vehicles will shift to using solid-state batteries
using lithium metal in the long term, but requisite
developments in the manufacturing process mean batteries with
liquid electrodes will remain in use until at least the late
2020s, according to Emily Hersch, managing partner of DCDB
