The battery continues to be a significant cost driver for OEMs and, in some cases, accounts for up to 80% of the total vehicle cost. So, what is the future trajectory on battery cost, and what are the alternative strategies to make battery production cheaper? Total lifetime cost – in the future – will also need to consider sustainability criteria, including the end-of-life portion and the ability to recycle.  In addition, hear from battery manufacturers on the drive to improve the efficiency of current technology while keeping an eye on commercializing next-generation battery technologies with more excellent range and enhanced safety.
