Infrastructure Minister Volodymyr Omelyan plans to pitch Elon Musk on constructing a Gigafactory for production of lithium-ion batteries in Ukraine. Omelyan said Thursday at press conference in Kyiv: “We believe we will be able to convince Tesla, the world’s largest manufacturer of electric cars, to create its [European] Gigafactory for production of storage batteries in Ukraine.” Ukraine has some of Europe’s largest proven lithium reserves. Tesla’s 85 kWh battery pack weighs 540 kg and contains 7,104 lithium-ion battery cells. Two weeks ago, in Beijing, Omelyan talked to Chinese companies about producing their vehicle batteries in Ukraine.
