  Audi is rumping up its E-Tron Electric Cars prototypes model range and now we have a more closer to the real production line EV based on existing Audi R8 gasoline super car from this automaker. This EV will be powered by Lithium battery as well. We saw some reports that Audi will be investing 15 billion euro in its Electric Car program and will dig this information further.
  German quality and attention to the detail is what we need to make a solid start in electrification of our transportation. EV super cars will draw attention and will allow the new technology to make its way into the mass market.

"This move by Toyota to Lithium batteries for its Plug-In Hybrids will have a huge implications for the whole lithium industry. Toyota's Prius is the leader in Hybrid sales and even if the batteries are smaller in the Hybrids, than those ones in pure Electric Cars, numbers on the sale side are adding up very fast.
  Toyota has a long history of discussing different batteries in the headlines, but moving fast into another direction with actual technology - they have announce quite a few times that lithium technology will not be cost effective, but later bought a stake in an upcoming lithium producer and now move to the lithium its Plug-In Hybrid fleet.
  Upcoming EV RAV-4 will be powered by Tesla 
lithium technology as well.


"U.S. Hostage to China for Rare Earth Minerals Already and Lithium in The Future. Nothing is changing under the sun in the US Corp. so far - America is under the oil lobby stronghold and if you would like to understand the real situation, just talk to the junior miners in Lithium and REE sectors. Chinese, Koreans and Japanese companies are the only one on the road now, buying all available projects in Lithium and REE space.

  Facebook is great, but how are we going to drive in five years time? What are we going to eat for that matter with Oil above 150 dollars again?
There is almost no money available now in U.S. or Canada to advance the Lithium and REE exploration, apart from few names everybody is talking about now. The rest of the sector will be funded by the Asian interest in the end."
