Price equivalency

That's going to be a good trick - the bulk of the cost difference is in the battery and given those are already (mostly) a commodity item in mass production where exactly do they see the reductions coming from?

You'd have to see all sorts of innovations appear and material prices collapse for anything significant to happen. And even then it still won't be cheap for a 30-100kWh battery.
