    He also said that the cost is proprietary information (!).

    Of course its proprietary, so they can make huge statements at unveals to blow everyone away.

    I seriously cannot wait for the cost per kWh to reach below $100 usd, once it gets to that point, it will be fundementally cheaper to buy an electric vehicle because not only is the range going to be massive, but the price of cars will be very cheap!!

    You think we will eventually be able to make electric cars cheaper than ICE cars? I hope so!

    They're already cheaper when you factor in fuel cost over the life of the car.
