    It is coming but it'll be decades before prices are low enough for mass production for EV use. Even current lithium-ion cells are still too expensive to compete with combustion cars in the <£30K barrier.

    Yep - that's why I tend to call them out on Li-Po battery claims. The polymer pouch type have virtually no electrical advantage over rigid and I think they use the term to hike the price and/or make cutomers believe they are buying something they aren't. Just annoys me the term has stuck for the pouch type....
