Watch the video:Lithium Drive: BMW i3: Can An Eco Focused Car Still Be The Ultimate Driving Machine? ILC.v TNR.v LIT
Tesla is making the headlines these days with its financial results, talks to Apple and Giga factory to produce Lithium Batteries. Interest to the electric cars is heating up and BMW is rolling out its BMW i3 now. This car will find its own fashionable crowd for urban mobility market. The next move by BMW will be the most important, can they make it the real proposition in the urban mobility market before Tesla Model E will be out and can they make it to China? China is the market to go now for all electric car makers with announced roll out of the world's largest electric car charging network.
"Now Tesla's success will put the spotlight on the Lithium Batteries and Lithium Materials industry again. Apple and Tesla are igniting the buzz about Electric Cars again and the real business very quietly acquires the assets with strategic commodities for the electric revolution.
Lithium industry will get another boost with this leap forward and Lithium supply will gain its strategic value. Ganfeng Lithium is already among top world lithium materials producers and its new production facilities will increase Lithium output in China for the battery industry. Company is very active in building its supply chain with Canada based International Lithium with its projects in Ireland, Argentina and Canada."
"Electric Cars will be the logical solution for China's pollution problems. At least with urban mobility electric cars can dramatically improve the air quality very fast. For years critics were pointing out that electricity is produced in China in large percentage by the coal power plants, the latest Party Plenum has taken the clear path towards greener electricity sources: natural gas, nuclear, wind and solar.
Now the only thing left out is the reliable technology to put the real electric cars for mass market on the roads. All major electric cars players are already presented in China: Nissan, GM, Ford, Toyota. Home grown BYD is making its way with electric proposition and taking the market of Electric Buses now. Tesla Motors is already selling Model S in China and there are reports that this electric car can be produced in China as well. Kandi with its concept of electric cars for rent from the vending machine is another very important development. We are talking here not only about Beijing and Shanghai, but more than 160 cities in China with population over 1 million people.
Now China again makes the bold move into the electric space and its lithium batteries and lithium materials industry is making very big progress under the radar screens of general investors. We are following here Ganfeng Lithium and International Lithium and they are getting into the interesting development stage of this cycle now with UK promoting electric cars and China coming back in this high stake technology game with the new force."
"China is literally chocking with pollution and electric cars are the obvious solution for urban mobility over there. Lithium developers are out of market favour now, but wait when investors will connect the dots again. Ganfeng Lithium is already the market leader in China in the lithium strategic supply chain and extending its raw material base with International Lithium strategic partnership. Today's news from UK are putting new perspective to International Lithium 10 million J/V development partnership in Ireland with Ganfeng Lithium.
From International Lithium Annual General Meeting:
"Mr. Kirill Klip stated, "We are working to advance our Blackstairs Lithium project early in 2014 under the ten million dollar joint venture with strategic partner Ganfeng Lithium Co. Ltd. ("GFL"). We are also working with GFL on a corporate structure that will enable the companies to move forward on the Mariana lithium-potash brine project in Argentina."
"Now Ganfeng Lithium has the capital to advance its development programs with International Lithium. Once the tax loss selling will be over International Lithium should enjoy better market perception with further advance of Lithium properties in Ireland, Argentina and Canada. Ganfeng Lithium production facilities development shows China's appetite for strategic commodities for electric revolution in order to make transportation and personal mobility still possible after recent pollution scare."
