Chemical development essential for slashing battery costs

The future may be electric, but creating a cost-competitive alternative to the ICE will require clever chemical thinking. By Jack Hunsley

After decades of stability, future mobility development has placed the automotive industry in limbo. Almost every active player is having to evolve rapidly, amidst an onslaught of new and old players which believe the future of mobility instead rests on their creations and capabilities. For automakers and suppliers, hope remains in the fact that minus the clear difference between an internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicle and an electric vehicle (EV), these two fundamentally different products do share many similarities.
