Tesla Motors Inc., the high-end electric vehicle (EV) manufacturer, is planning to double the world’s battery production when it launches its Gigafactory in three years’ time.

500,000 EV lithium-ion batteries will be produced when the Gigafactory hits capacity in 2020, a situation which could transform demand for the critical minerals graphite, lithium and cobalt.

This free report from Industrial Mineral Data quantifies the potential mineral demand from Tesla’s ambitious project. It also looks at the potential mines of the future, as the EV manufacturer looks to secure the raw materials that will fuel a new global battery age.
