Unfortunately, again we will not be able to make it this year.  Picked the cat up from the Vet tonight and she needs medication and we cant leave her overnight.

Hopefully we will make the Easter break.

Merry Xmas to all :cheers:

The shift to less dense energy but cheaper LFP battery technology over NMC gave lithium battery resource costing a reprieve but it’s all uphill from here-
https://reneweconomy.com.au/lithium-ion-battery-pack-prices-rise-for-first-time-since-2010-hurting-evs-and-storage/
The renewables/EV fan club needs to stop wasting lightweight lithium batteries on stationary grid firming if EV take-up isn’t going to hit the affordability wall.

EVs are dear and about to get dearer on that outlook but lets look at that bang for buck BYD Atto3 small/medium SUV extended range priced at $48801 before ORC in Australia. So on that $151USD/kW it's 60kW battery will cost $13500 AUD ex-factory before shipping profit and GST. Not hard to see why replacement batteries for EVs get quoted around $25k plus installed and that junks the car by then.

EVs are not exactly going to be a big hit out in the country particularly with farmers storing diesel on farm-

And if that wasn't enough you might notice the number of Tesla Model3 cars for sale on Carsales has been steadily climbing lately to 530 at present while Tesla discount new ones in China and the US-

Welcome to real depreciation for expensive cars again you'd reasonably expect as the FOMO factor subsides.
