Chemical Batteries (Liquid or Solid-State) Will Not be Good Enough
Chemical batteries are limited by the science of electro-chemical storage. Their performance degrades in real-world temperature ranges (they only perform adequately in the limited range of 0°C to 35°C*).
Their capacity constantly degrades with use, therefore a used vehicle (or boat or plane) market will never develop. They can never be charged quickly, even 15 minute charge times are harmful and reduces cycle life. They are always oversized to handle high rate-of-discharge (e.g. when an EV is accelerating), so they will always be bulky even with advances in energy density.
Since they contain chemicals, the risk of igniting will never go away. To overcome all these challenges, they will always be expensive. And finally, because of their chemical construct, they degrade with use so their life is always going to be limited and they will most likely always be a net pollutant.
