    This article was linked on Slashdot: http://newsoffice.mit.edu/2015/manufacturing-lithium-ion-battery-half-cost-0623.

    I know that many battery technologies announced never pan out, but MIT usually doesn't make an announcement unless they are really on to something. If it pans out, it could be really good for Tesla. The Gigafactory's economy of scale coupled with this new technique might mean future cars could get into the $20,000 Toyota Corolla, Ford Focus range.
