Elon Musk Tesla CEO makes one of the biggest announcement during Tesla’s “battery day” in which Elon Musk Announces New Electric car going to be launch in the next 3 years.
Elon Musk said that they will reduce the cost of its battery cells which will allow the company to achieve the goal of making a new Electric Car which costs only $25000 Dollar and will be launch after 3 years.
Changing the materials inside the cell will allow Tesla to “halve” the price per kilowatt-hour, which will make electric cars roughly the same price as combustion engine ones. Prices of kWh had been falling from years it has fallen from $1,100/kWh in 2010 to $156/kWh in 2019, a drop of 87 percent.
Experts predict that the price will hit $100/kWh by 2023, but Elon Musk Announces New Electric Car said Tesla will kick off a three-year process to bring the price below that — though he didn’t say exactly what the price target would be.
