The GM-Backed Company Ridding EV Batteries of Harmful 'Forever Chemicals' - Nanoramic Laboratories' CEO Eric Kish
The late Fiat Chrysler Automobile CEO Sergio Marchionne was one of the boldest business leaders of his generation and had a reputation for an outspoken and often blunt approach. This was especially true when he shared his thoughts on the Fiat 500e, a BEV version of the popular Fiat 500. “I hope you don’t buy it because every time I sell one it costs me $14,000,” he said to an audience at the Brookings Institution in 2014 about the 500e. “I’m honest enough to tell you that.”

What has changed little in over three decades is how lithium-ion batteries are manufactured. Because material cost constituted such a large portion of total production costs technology improvements focused on materials rather than manufacturing technology.
