November EV sales set another all-time record supporting increasing production for battery materials all across the value chain. EV penetration in China reached almost 40% in November, while European and Nort American EV penetration is holding around 25% and 8% respectively. We're expecting EV penetration to reach 13% in 2022, while by 2032 plug-in EV share will increase almost threefold to 38% requiring all steps of the production chain to rapidly scale.
