No later than 2050. ford is adding lithium iron phosphate cell chemistry to its portfolio alongside its existing nickel, cobalt, manganese chemistry. This creates even more capacity for high demand products and provides customers many years of operation with minimal range loss. It also reduces the reliance on scarce critical minerals such as nickel, and at current costs brings a 10 to 15 percent bill of material savings for ford versus ncm batteries. The company confirmed it has secured one hundred percent of the annual battery cell capacity needed sixty gigawatt hours to support this six hundred thousand f run rate by working with leading battery companies around the globe. Ford announced the contemporary ampere x technology. Co limited will provide full lfp battery packs for mustang maki models for north america starting next year, as well as f 150 lightnings in early 2024. fords ev architecture. Flexibility allows efficient incorporation of catls, prismatic lfp cell to pack technology, delivering incremental capacity quickly to scale and meet customer demand.

Ford also is leveraging its long standing connection with lg energy solution and its strategic relationship with sk on to meet its battery capacity target for late 2023 long time. Supplier lges has scaled quickly and doubled its capacity at its rock law. Poland facility to support incremental ncm cell production for mustang machi, an e transit models, ford and catl. The worlds largest battery producer have signed a separate non binding mood to explore cooperation for supplying batteries in fords markets across china, europe and north america. Ford also announced it plans to localize and use 40 gwh of lfp capacity in north america, starting in 2026.. The company intends to use this additional capacity to complement three previously announced battery plants in kentucky and tennessee that are part of the blue, oval sk joint venture between ford and sk on which was officially formed. Last week, ford has signed an additional move with sk on, as well as holdings, to create a joint venture in turkey for expanded battery capacity there to support its joint venters ford is direct sourcing battery cell raw materials as well. Our team has been actively engaged with partners in the united states and around the world said: lisa drake ford model e vice president of industrialization. We will move fast in the key markets and regions where critical supplies are available. Meeting with government officials, mining companies and processors and signing mous and agreements that reflect fords esg expectations and underpin fords plan to bring evs to millions today the company announced it is working with major mining collaborators and has sourced most of the nickel needed through 2026 and Beyond ford has signed non binding mousse with vale canada limited to explore potential opportunities across the f value chain, pt, vale, indonesia and huyu cobalt for exploring a three way: nickel processing project and separately, an off take agreement with huyu.

That collectively will provide ford with rights to the equivalent of 84 kilotons per annum of nickel. The hp for nickel supply from bhps nickel west operations in australia, the targeted multi year agreement could start as early as 2025 and may involve additional commodities over time. Ford also has locked several key lithium contracts beyond the recently announced key asset in western australia secured through liontown resources. Ford also has signed a non binding move with rio, tinto, exploring a significant lithium off take agreement from its rinkin project in argentina. This is part of a multi metal moo that leverages the scale of fords aluminum business and includes a potential opportunity on copper. Ford also continues working to localize processing of key battery materials in north america. To that end, the company is announcing eco, pro bm and sk. On have signed a non binding letter of intent with ford to establish a cathode production facility in north america. Pioneer has signed a binding off take agreement with ford for lithium carbonate from ionias rhyolite ridge project in nevada to support ev production. Beyond 2025 compass, minerals has signed a non binding move for lithium, hydroxide and lithium carbonate from its utah operations on the great salt lake, ciro resources and eskeon have signed a non binding moo to secure offtake for natural graphite from its processing site in vidalia louisiana. Its a very competitive landscape, these collaborators see value in the strong demand we have created with exceptional products like mustang, maki and f, 150 lightning and the stability we can bring to these relationships.

Drake said we are excited to work with them and others.
