Lithium and REE: France: PSA to launch electric cars in 2010 TNR.v, CZX.v, WLC.v, LI.v, RM.v, CLQ.v, SQM, FMC, ROC, AVL.to, QUC.v, RES.v


"Electric cars are not vacuum cleaners with wheels any more and electric power train opens new possibilities. These babies are beautiful and they are coming in numbers: Bloomberg Nissan, FedEx Seek Electric-Car Target of 200 Million "


"Nissan’s research has shown 8 percent of Americans and 9 percent of Europeans are “hand raisers” who say their next car will be electric — despite the fact the first mainstream EVs aren’t expected for another year.“I think I’m being conservative saying 10 percent,” Ghosn said. “People will say ‘You’re being too bullish.’ But I think that underestimates people’s concern for the environment.”

"You need just to check Gold price and USD index where the truth is, if the same will happen to Oil reserves estimations and Peak Oil will be confirmed for majority of consumers panic will drive prices fast. Now all that effort of DOE to finance alternative energy and, particularly, transportation in the form of electric cars with lithium batteries gains a new meaning - Electric cars can be the only economic and fast deployable alternative to oil based fuels. Rising oil prices will make this transformation happening really fast and lithium and REE will be in a very high demand."

PSA Peugeot Citroën yesterday confirmed that it will launch four electric vehicles in 2010, making it the first volume car manufacturer to commercialise a range of battery electric vehicles.
The company’s low carbon vehicle launch timetable was announced yesterday in London at a presentation of the group’s low carbon strategy, which combines battery electric vehicles, diesel hybrids and a range of improved-efficiency petrol and diesel engines.
Peugeot will launch an electric version of the Partner LCV around mid-2010. This will be followed by the iOn, Peugeot’s version of the Mitsubishi i-MiEV, in the second half of 2010. Citroën will mirror the launches with an electric version of the Berlingo LCV by mid-2010, and the C-Zero in the second half of the year. The C-Zero is the Citroën version of the i-MiEV. There will also be a Peugeot electric motorcycle, the E-Vivacity, in the second half of 2010.
PSA Peugeot Citroën also confirmed its forthcoming hybrid vehicle launches. This will begin in 2011 with two models equipped with Hybrid4, its diesel hybrid system, namely the Peugeot 3008 and the Citroën DS5. In 2012, the 3008 will also be launched as the company's first plug-in diesel hybrid vehicle.
At the low carbon strategy presentation, PSA Peugeot Citroën also demonstrated to journalists for the first time the road-ready Peugeot iOn and Citroën C-Zero models.
More details of PSA Peugeot Citroën’s low carbon strategy will be outlined in a feature to be published by AutomotiveWorld.com, including comments made in an interview with Guillaume Faury, member of the managing board of PSA Peugeot Citroën and executive VP for manufacturing and engineering. PSA Peugeot Citroën says that in 2012, it will sell one million vehicles emitting less than 120g of CO2/km.
Renault and Nissan plan to launch their first electric vehicles in 2011 and 2012.
