Will Tesla Alone Double Global Demand For Its Battery Cells?

Green Car Reports says that in just 12 months of production, Tesla will have deployed more than 1.6 million kWh worth of batteries. If Tesla hits its goals, the Model S alone will soak up almost 40 percent of global cylindrical battery production. And if the third-gen car reaches the goal of 100,000 a year or more, “the batteries it requires will run well into the billions–dwarfing the capacity of the entire current battery industry.”
