I wonder how long it will be until I'll be driving an electric car.

38 to 86 months.

Depends on your vehicle’s mission. How old your current vehicle is, and if the vehicle’s that full fill that mission are for sale at the time you need a new vehicle.

We should see price parity in 2025 with some EV’s. No subsidies. By 2028 Nissan plans to have its own Solid State battery in wide spread production with costs at the pack level of 75 dollars a kilowatt hour. Nissan claims this is price parity. However, we are approaching price parity in some sectors with Tesla now. Tesla is special in that much of the economics is in the design and fabrication of the auto itself.

There might be some lumpyness in consumer battery prices as I believe that grid storage will create a massive demand completely overwhelming supply at 100 dollars a kilowatt hour delivered. (Currently seeing quotes for solar plus storage at 850 a kilowatt hour.)

Cheers
