Martin says Tesla is no longer the sole player in the electric vehicle sector, with most big-name automobile manufacturers across the world producing electric and hybrid vehicles to meet market demand.

In addition to selling the vehicles themselves, Ford will be launching software and services - collectively named Ford Pro Intelligence - to help companies manage their delivery fleets.

In total, Ford projects a profit of at least $45 billion from its electric transit vehicle program.

Overall, the demand for medium-duty transit vehicles in the United States is approximately 330,000 vehicles per year.

As the demand for lithium-ion batteries rises even further due to new products and programs in the electric vehicle sector, so does the demand for one of the key components of these batteries: manganese.

Manganese is an essential component of lithium-ion batteries, but it is also used in the nickel-manganese-cobalt battery, the other most common type of battery worldwide.

Manganese can be found in rich deposits in North America, such as in the Battery Hill manganese site in Woodstock, New Brunswick, Canada.
