Then according to this inverse, the current cost of Tesla's car battery pack is about $136/kWh, and the industry consensus is that the selling price of electric cars to be on par with fuel cars, then the price of the battery pack should be less than $100/kWh. Now look, Tesla according to this there is still a distance. However, just as Tesla is still painting a big picture for the public, the industry already has lithium-ion battery pack prices that have come to the historic $100/kWh mark.
100 USD/kWh is close at hand
On Dec. 16. 2020, Bloomberg NEF (BNEF) reported that the price of lithium-ion battery packs had its first historic moment this year below $100/kWh. The price was set by electric buses from China, and BNEF highlighted that while this is the lowest reported price, the actual weighted average price for electric buses in China is slightly higher, at $105/kWh. If battery packs and cells are counted separately, then the pack price is $126/kWh and the average cell price is $100/kWh. This indicates that the PACK component accounts for 21% of the total price.
