What's the source for CATL's expected sales price? Because their CTO is on record saying they cost more to make than LFP: "...for the sodium-ion battery, currently we think the raw materials are cheap

but the final product or the price of the final product is not cheaper than the lithium-ion battery just because the energy density is lower than the lithium-ion battery....For example if we have one kilowatt hour energy we need to produce two or three times almost two times of the battery cells per month.

So the production fee is higher than the lithium-ion battery." source: https://youtu.be/shdrSiHoeMY?si=b5e5LJPnmsxFBse5&t=3612
