12:53 pm
inflection point in the adoption of electric vehicles because basically what happens is in the late 2020's, we see battery costs coming down even from the mid-2020's, to a point where electric vehicles get cheaper to build and then sell. what that does is start to really spike the adoption of electric vehicles. vonnie: i believe we have a chart showing the current china,tion in europe, the u.s., and the rest of the world. about 5% oronly what if we have new technology by then? is that a possibility? >> there is always the possibility of technology breakthroughs. but generally, we expect lithium-ion batteries to be the dominant technology driving the electric vehicle revolution. we do not see that much in fuel-cell vehicles. we see a gain already tapped out and that gets quite important. if you look at fuel economy in

places like europe, the u.s., and china, they all call for dramatically -- vehicles. it is really hard to meet with existing diesel and petrol technology. by 2025, european targets would require somewhere between 10% and 17% sales to be electric. china is aiming for all sales growth from 2025 to be all electric. at that point, you're talking somewhere around 7 million vehicles a year just in china alone. you have really strong policy levers starting to push it forward. at the same time come you have technology coughed -- cost curves coming down and eventually giving us vehicles they will want to buy. there are two different philosophies in the world right now. tell us which companies will benefit most from the shift? >> battery vendors in general we think will benefit. some of the miners supplying
