Rising battery prices add uncertainty to EV costs, WSJ reports
On February 6, 2022, the WSJ ran an article that said the surging prices for the metals that make up electric-vehicle batteries had ended a decade-long decline that brought the cost of EVs to within spitting distance of gasoline-powered vehicles. With electric-vehicle sales taking off and a wave of new models hitting the market this year, the author notes that the price increases could weigh on growth. Since 2010, lithium-ion battery prices on average have tumbled 90% to about $130 per kilowatt-hour. The magic number that makes electric vehicles competitive with internal-combustion engine vehicles is roughly $100 a kilowatt-hour. The publication adds that many expected the battery industry to reach that mark in 2024, a goal that is looking increasingly elusive. Prices are now soaring for the key ingredient in batteries. Publicly traded companies in the space include Tesla (TSLA), Lucid (LCID), Nikola (NKLA), Nio (NIO), Li Auto (LI), Xpeng (XPEV), Fisker (FSK), Rivian (RIVN), and Lordstown Motors (RIDE).
