The improvement in battery technologies will not solve the electric mobility issue

Battery-based solutions are useful for electric mobility. But when you expect too much from the technology, you tend to forget that physics is what it is, i.e. harsh and inescapable, and the economics of the system has its own laws too, as much harsh and inescapable. In 2005, the average cost of kWh for Lithium-Ion [...]
