Year 2016 will be interesting year for automotive industry. Batteries will get more durability, therefore more autonomy, without higher prices. At contrary, like Elon Musk wants with Tesla and masification in his megafactory. Something similar will happen with electric motors, which can be developed only one for category, for sport car or ‘heavy duty’ usage for utility, for instance.
The conditions from both technologies will be the same: efficiency, long durability, ’0′ maintenance, sustainable, inclusive recycling. I will not be surprised, if foreign, european firms establish alliance’s, for instance Fraunhofer and/or DLR to construct competitive products, with ‘reasonable’ prices.
