Elon Musk earlier this week made his most bullish statements yet on iron-based batteries, noting that Tesla is making a “long-term shift” toward older, cheaper lithium-iron-phosphate (LFP) cells in its energy storage products and some entry-level EVs. The Tesla CEO mused that the company's batteries may eventually be roughly two-thirds iron-based and one-third nickel-based across its products. Musk's comments reflect a change that is already underway within the automotive sector, mainly in China.
