Robotaxis and raw materials
The UBS Evidence Lab came to the conclusion that the Robotaxi fleet market could amount to two trillion US dollars in 2030. 25 UBS analysts examined future traffic in major cities. The measured variables include, for example, costs, the profitability margin or the number of charging stations required. Robot taxis are expected to account for around five percent of the kilometers driven in the city in 2030.
Tesla boss Elon Musk even wants to establish self-propelled taxis on the roads next year. "Tesla Network" is to deploy one million of these autonomous taxis in the USA. But Musk's plans usually take more time than announced. Ford is also planning to bring Ford Robotaxis onto the road with a hybrid drive in 2021. It would certainly be practically clean and comfortable to get from A to B without a driver's license. Whereby at least it is doubtful whether traffic jams can be avoided.
Which wouldn't be so bad, because a few years later maybe the flying taxis are already on their way. In any case, this is researched and tested by various companies in different countries. The basis for the drive is usually electricity. Some fuel cells will be used. But most of them will have batteries. This will devour raw materials in masses. One might think of cobalt and vanadium.
Vanadium is used in storage batteries and is the raw material on which Delrey Metals relies - http://www.commodity-tv.net/c/search_adv/?v=299146. In addition to four vanadium projects in British Columbia, the main project is the Four Corners project in southwest Newfoundland and Labrador, in which Delrey Metals owns 80 percent. The project covers approximately 7,655 hectares, hosts vanadium-rich mineralization, is located in one of Canada's best mining areas and has excellent infrastructure.
Cobalt is also an important raw material for storage batteries. First Cobalt - http://www.commodity-tv.net/c/search_adv/?v=298892 - is the only company with the plus to own an approved cobalt refinery in Idaho and the Iron Creek cobalt property. In addition, First Cobalt controls a significant land package in the Canadian cobalt deposit with more than 50 mines that have previously produced.
