“The EV battery industry is vigilant in identifying the ideal battery format to provide consumers with a safe, clean, reliable and affordable transportation power solution,” said Research Analyst Wesley Dean. “Currently, battery manufacturers are hard at work developing new production processes, materials and configurations to make EV batteries, and therefore EVs, more affordable. However, increased affordability is likely to be achieved in the short term by significant increases in production levels, which is contingent upon a larger scale adoption of EVs. Addressing these challenges is crucial as the market has found itself in a bit of quagmire.”
