I dont have a bubble to burst, what I know is grounded in facts. The statement above of a life expectency of 6-7 years is ridicules, I'm not even going to address it.
A Thundersky cell at this time has a life expectency of at least 3000 cycles to 80% of its capacity. And if you keep away from the top and bottom of such a cell and only charge and discharge 75% or less of such cell, such a cell can last over 5000 cycles or more, who knows, they havent been around long enough to see their end of life cycle. The data from all who have such cells in vehicles at this time, shows that the life cycle data provided is correct, and may be even understated.
I also stated in my post that EV's will not replace all ICE vehicles for obvious reason. But their is absolutly no reason, that such vehicles can not replace over 50% of ICE vehicles, since a large amount of ICE usage is local with low milage.
There is no reason that a EV could not outlast any ICE vehicle, for no other reasons than the shear simplicty of an EV drive system. Also energy storage system in the future will be a lot better, and new systems of storage are being worked on, as we speak. Maxwell produces super capacitors, who will have a lifetime of over 1 million cycles.
I gave some links that are well worth looking at, you will see that plain DYI'ers are already converting to electric with very good results. The EV industrie is still in its infancy, but making large strides every day, but I'm sorry to say that our Detroit automobile industries is not the solution at this time, they are the problem.
Keep an eye on Tesla, its the future of how we will transport ourselfs, its not a bubble, its fact.
