It takes about 250 g of lithium per kWh of battery capacity with current technology. We can reasonably expect that to go down to 125 g/kWh with 65 g/kWh being the ultimate physical limit on ~4V cells.
So, count about 4 kg for a 16 kWh battery like in a Chevy Volt EREV. Even at 100 x current prices for the raw LiCO3 material assuming very low grade resource, it would account for just a thousand bucks on a car or so.
