Who will win the Lithium race?

Automakers spend more on R&D than any other industry. For example, Toyota spends 10 times more dollars than Apple. Getting to the Prius cost $1 billion and getting to the next digital transportation breakthrough is costing more.

The race to marry Lithium with automobiles is attracting top talent, global money powering new technologies with promising futures.

Just as entrepreneurs and corporate American filled the analogue to digital wake that Napster left in the music industry, venture capitalist and the largest organizations in the world are racing to R&D the iPod for the auto industry.

I wonder who will sell me the automobile that can drive across the digital divide and set the standard to accelerate away from the competition...


Start your Lithium teams and then engines (ranked in random order)!!!

  • Team Volt: Sequoia, GM, A123
  • Team VW: 360 million euros to develop Li-ion batteries by Bosch, Evonic Degssa, Li-Tec, STEAG Saar Egnergie including 60 million euros from the German govt. (Automotive Engineer, Dec 2007, Vol. 32 Issue 11, p 47)
  • Team Nissan: NEC Lamilion Energy, A123, SAP AG
  • New Enterprise Associates, BlueRun Ventures, Draper Fisher Jurvetson and DFJ
  • Team Ford: GE, $30 million R1, $40 million R2 for A123, Sanyo
  • Team Phoenix: Al Yousaf, Altair
  • Team GM: Cobasts, Johnson
  • Vincent Bollore/EDF/$52.8M BatScap/Continental AG/BMW/Pininfarina/BlueCar
  • Team Mitsubishi: GS Yuasu, Lithium Energy Japan, MiEV
  • Team Tesla: $37M Musk/VantagePoint Venture Partners, Technology Partners, and Draper Fisher Jurvetson/$105M Tesla
  • Team Fisker: $10M Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers/Quantum
  • Team Zenn: Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers/EEEstor/$25M Zenn/Lockheed

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I earn money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info.
