“A report in Ward’s Auto dated February 7th says EV battery prices are falling faster than expected and could be lower than the magic $100 per kilowatt-hour mark by 2020.  He writes, “Back in 2010 the Department of Energy set a cost goal of $125 per kilowatt hour, because that would make electric propulsion systems equal to the cost of an internal combustion engine. At the time, no one saw a clear path of how to get to that cost. But at CES, several EV experts told me the DOE’s number is turning out to be a very conservative goal. They assured me those costs will be under $100 before 2020, and not long after that they will go down to about $80 per kilowatt hour.” – Steve Hanley via Clean Technica
