We Forecast 40% Electric Vehicle Adoption by 2030, Up From 10% in 2022

Seth Goldstein Strategist

Analyst Note

| Seth Goldstein |

In 2022, battery electric vehicles represented nearly 10% of global auto sales, up from a little less than 6% in 2021. Much of the growth occurred in China, which has been a leader in EV sales over the past decade.

Key Statistics LAC

Company Profile LAC

Business Description

Lithium Americas is a pure-play lithium producer. The company owns three lithium resources, two brine-based operations located in northwestern Argentina and a clay project in Nevada, U.S. One of the Argentina resources is in production, while the other is in development and the U.S. project is under construction. We expect the U.S. project to enter production in the middle of the 2020s and the second brine resource to enter production in the late-2020s. Lithium Americas plans for all three resources to be fully integrated, selling into the lithium chemical market. The company also plans to separate into two companies, with assets divided by geography, an Argentina company and a U.S. company.

Style is an investment factor that has a meaningful impact on investment risk and returns. Style is calculated by combining value and growth scores, which are first individually calculated.

High-growth stocks tend to represent the technology, healthcare, and communications sectors. They rarely distribute dividends to shareholders, opting for reinvestment in their businesses. More value-oriented stocks tend to represent financial services, utilities, and energy stocks. These are established companies that reliably pay dividends.
