This design and cost study reports the state of the art of electric-vehicle batteries, what the technology is capable of mass-producing within two years, and what are the research and development tasks that must be undertaken to achieve goals for both the ''improved state-of-the-art'' battery and the advanced battery. Energy-intensive and ''life-intensive'' candidate designs for electric-vehicle lead--acid batteries are discussed, and performance projections are tabulated.
