Musk Implies Tesla Must Make Own Battery Cells to Meet EV Demand
Tesla Inc. will need to start producing its own battery cells in order to meet demand for its electric vehicles, even as it ramps up purchases from outside suppliers, Elon Musk said in a tweet.
Replying to @elonmuskWe intend to increase, not reduce battery cell purchases from Panasonic, LG & CATL (possibly other partners too). However, even with our cell suppliers going at maximum speed, we still foresee significant shortages in 2022 & beyond unless we also take action ourselves.11:00 PM · Sep 21, 2020
