I'm pretty sure when the scale of EV adoption brings down battery costs as you predict, another cost will rear its head as an offset: recycling.

There's just no way society is going to accept the dumping of these toxic chemicals in landfills as a long-term (or even short term) solution.

The cost of recycling, then, needs to be plugged in for Wright's Law to be meaningful in this case.
