a LIB using solid rechargeable electrodes is capable of a long cycle life at acceptable rates of charge/discharge, but the energy density of individual cells, even with a 4 V cell, makes difficult the manufacture of a cost-competitive battery of sufficient energy density to displace the internal combustion engine of an automobile with long driving range between rapid and convenient liquid-fuel refills. A first step will be plug-in hybrids [PHEVs] used for daily commuting.
