    >>I get a huge kick out of forecasts that assume new manufacturing methods can be developed and a new battery technology can scale within a decade, but youth is always ambitious when it comes to those types of issues.<<

    Excuse me John, but were you talking about Axion??

  • Are EV Dreams Going Up In Smoke? [View article]
    Or when Granville said in the year end 2011 conference call when asked about milestones for the year (a question he didn't answer of course) he said

    "Some of the things we can look forward to are sales of cube applications, sales of a hybrid locomotive application and some things that we haven't really talked about a whole lot right now that we've been diligently working on and there are reasons for not talking about these things but I think we can expect all of these things to take place in the next few months."

    No hopium there John, and when you said

    "Any moron can have aspirations. My respect is earned by accomplishment"

    Sorry to hear you have no respect for Axion.

    You can listen to the call. It's pretty impressive.

    >>Gotta love those phrases like "not-too-distant-future" that can mean anything a hopium addict wants them to mean<<

    Kind of like when Granville said "2011 was an exciting year, 2012 will be a VERY exciting year!"

    There's no hopium in your pipe John is there.

    If percentages was a rule, then John would have been banned ages ago.

    Mr. 481086 (Mr. because it's a sign of respect),

    >>"increase" margins<<

    Great! But if my math serves me correct, 100% of nothing is.....wait, I know this one.

    JP,

    Is it the tech or the management? Can't be both. If it is then this is all pointless.

    Alpha,
    >>But is there something remiss when a CEO talks about "buckling down" for a wild ride when the production efficiency doesn't exist to support such a wild ride?<<

    In other words, was he lying then or is he lying now? Was that you question because I think it is a good one.

    So LT, is it the technology or management? Or both? If the tech works, it has to be management.

    Then why did Xtreme do a deal with GE for their batteries? Looks like Xtreme is simply trying to shift the blame and buy time before they settle out of court with somebody.

    So John, why doesn't Axion have sales? Management or technology?

    JRP3, you are forgetting the one crash that I am aware of in China where 3 people died.

    Watch what you say, you don't want to get labeled.

    Most ss use lithium, even with their safety concerns. According to JP, Volvo said it's a 2 year process. I believe we are entering year 4. I don't think it took 4 years to implement lithium for any of the OEMs (hyperbole on my part because I have no way of knowing for sure)
    Also if I'm not mistaken, NS only gave/paid the order after they got the grant.
    Neither is a vote of confidence for the PbC, yet they continue to work with eachother.
    Not sure I'm making a point here, just commenting out of frustration.

    I've haven't posted for quite a while because I have had nothing positive to say, but now I must say something less than positive.
    What I find most interesting is how everyone talks about how careful and methodical and deliberate auto OEMs are and that is why it is taking so long with Axion, yet every other ss system they have implemented seems to have failed miserably and they were very quick to implement those. I know, I know, this time they don't want to make the same mistake. Same goes for NS.
