li-on batteries is wqell said except the e is missing it should be lie-on, the experiment on our unwary public thinking the federal agencies responsibility for credibility im the market place would not allow  the EV companies to experiment on the public, trying to decipher the coefficient factor of expansion of lithium as it ages, and becomes dysfunctional. Its not like metal, as it ages it expands, no one knows how much, or what for or what kind of expandable casing it requires to remain fubctional, as most like tsla simply ignore it while the cars heat up and creep a;ong, requiring them to put on their flashers, and hope someone doesn't come up behind a big rig and not see them. Criminality in government takes a broad swath using affirmative action to make scientific evaluations, or in the cse od our once world leading team of scientists at SASA where they more than justified their existence in taxes taken, replaced by an astromaunt, afroamerican, while dismantling shutle2 and constellation. The world is becoming bizarre when we become a slave bnation (free trade) and people like chui, from academia make the calls, a gaggle of idiots destroyinh our youths chances to become involved in our once, independent country, when we made what we consumes

 " 0 " must be 6the difference between your eyes, in june, EV sales were less than 3,000. one day soon the real world will see a more viable, end of EV's still remaining because some people can afford tp make the unjustifiable economic decision to buy an EV, if your capable of calculating the variables. Its on a scale with the real value of gold, considering its functional uses, other than the media, and financials media as a source for its economic REAL worth, little btter than lead

Ann: I see you left a question for me on January 6th that I never answered. The link to the Indiana University Blue Ribbon Panel study is here:

Sorry for being a tad late with my response.

things change at a tremendously fast paced timing. I read where Tesla  began shipping its 4 door sedans  from CA, instead of finland where it got the old samples made

 

the message below it was one of elon iron man musk declaring bankruptcy, in the face of some 1 million in repair costs and mounting to his experiment with the roadster, and li-on batteries expanding when they heat up---It was ironic, but, just today I went to the apple store, with a laptop I bought in 2008 2.4 GB, the li-on battery had expanded beyond its housing, They replaced it without cost. Then we had a discussion about apple making their products statewide, which they replied it may or maynot cost twice as much, depending if the difference in labor cost in china and the usa was ignored. Chinese slaves currently make 3.8 cents when an american worker makees a dollar. Before the last few admins enacted nafta then free trade, we had import taxation to protect us from slavery, while remaining an independent nation, then the lobbies bribed politica to look the other way as slavery became our way of life, or the source of our durable goods, as we so act so we become. If the factor of americas quality of life is a variable of the equasion, as it actually is, then apple could make their goods in america and the costs would remain the same or decrease, if it is ignored them they may or maynot cost more if make in america. One thing is certain as long as slavery and nobility are restored to power in the free world, our quality of life and hope will continue to diminish. Our nations youth and the youth around the world are viewing this from a different perspective, giving consideration to ending nobility and slavery world wide, its called anarchy, historically used to do away with nobility. the world is changing at a fast pace, its interesting ti see how it will all turn out, todays youth self educated in the internet are very aware, capable of great things

jackiecox, you do yourself no favors by using incorrect facts and unsupported opinions to back up your claims.  Just one example for your information: You should be aware that Tesla roadsters were not made or assembled in Finland.  I think you may be thinking of Fisker, a separate company that also markets an EV, but has no ties to Tesla.  Tesla DID use a body constructed by Lotus, a UK company, but they did not assemble the car there.

In terms of the viability of the battery technology in EVs, I would tend to agree that we're not there yet, and I would just note that it has nothing to do with Men in Black, evil corporations or conspiracies (a la "Who killed the electric car?").  Keep in mind that when Orville and Wilber made their first successful flight, there weren't agents out selling tickets to passengers the next day.  Free markets work when entrepreneurs take risks and invest their own money in new ideas.  If they win, they win.  If they lose, they lose and try something different.  And it usually takes time.

Regarding your rant about slave labor and such, take a breath.  Relax.  Maybe you should check the expiration date on your meds.

Oh, and you might want to use a spell checker.  No offense , but you need one badly.

what part of the car body does not make it a major part of the car, where elon usen taxpayer funds to get the lotus bodies manufactured, lacking the manufacturing process himself?

The increased adoption of wireless technology for mission-critical applications has revved up the global market for dynamic electronic general purpose (GP) test equipment. As the link between cloud networks and devices -- smartphones, tablets, and notebooks -- results in more complex devices under test, the demand for radio frequency test equipment is starting to intensify.
Much of the research on lithium-ion batteries is focused on how to make the batteries charge more quickly and last longer than they currently do, work that would significantly improve the experience of mobile device users, as well EV and hybrid car drivers. Researchers in Singapore have come up with what seems like the best solution so far -- a battery that can recharge itself in mere minutes and has a potential lifespan of 20 years.
