If I had to guess, I would believe in 25-30 years EV production may out pace the ICE in certain markets. This is of course if everything is independent of political interference (which never happens)

If all the other countries can find the needed materials to make battery packs I think it will become more mainstream sooner. This will be settled by politics not rational thought though. If China holds the bulk of the resources then all automakers become subservient to them. Not sure that will sit well with many people. So many variables to consider on the world stage.

In the mean time if companies want to help EV acceptance, build more compelling cars at reasonable prices. It usually comes down to the product. I do not see any reasons for this to be any different.

I agree. Like the people saying any year now batteries will have a breakthrough that changes everything... I have been laughing at those for 20 years.

I must have misread your previous post. I got the impression you were suggesting Mitsubishi should make the batteries for Japanese car makers because of a lack of space in Japan.

Yes, there is a lack of space in Japan for the major Japanese automakers to invest in, whereas Mitsubishi has already invested in, and more than likely has the means to expand their battery producing infrastructure, especially if they can work out a deal with the other major Japanese manufacturers to share technology in exchange for said battery technology. I.E. Mitsubishi does the hard work on battery technology, scaling up its production so that 4 other different manufacturers don't have to build their own facilities in already crowded metro centers.

Kind of slow but moving in the right direction
