July 11 (Reuters) The cost of lithium-ion batteries in electrified vehicles could by more than 70 percent by as rising oil prices and stringent economy standards push to build more of these according to a McKinsey Co study on Wednesday.

Manufacturing these on a larger scale represents of the potential price reduction by McKinsey said. The expected of companies in the sector and new technology from consumer electronics like Apple Inc would help cut lithium-ion battery the consultancy added.

McKinsey predicts the price of a lithium-ion battery pack fall from between and $600 per kilowatt hour now to $200 in 2020 and to $160 by

If gasoline prices hover $3.50 per gallon or higher, that purchase batteries at per kilowatt hour could electrified vehicles that can with cars and trucks by advanced internal-combustion engines, are now significantly cheaper.

Battery costs represent one of the hurdles to the widespread adoption of vehicles, analysts say. The Department of Energy has set a goal to the cost of a battery pack to per kilowatt hour by 2014.
