I want to bring people's attention to just one quote of the article;

Quote

Tesla has produced more than 20GWh in batteries this year, and it’s on pace to hit that 2020 target two years ahead of schedule, which would account for about 60 percent of the lithium-ion batteries made in the world. The company makes millions of battery cells per day.

Now... let that sink in a moment. 60% of the Li-Ion batteries in the world.

Now consider this - They're building a second Gigafactory in Buffalo, New York.
They're building a third Gigafactory in China.
They're planning a fourth Gigafactory in Europe.

The Tesla Model 3 was "make or break" for Tesla. Another quarter or two will tell for certain if it's been "made".
But Tesla's future isn't cars.

Tesla's future is batteries, solar cells, and energy systems. And they'll "also sell cars".

That battery they installed in south Australia in less than a year open many eyes. Los Angeles County is now buy two batteries from Tesla that are even bigger. More sales are in the works too. It’s quite a bit easier to sell huge numbers of batteries than installing them in cars.

Now if we can find a better way to harvest the lithium, nickel and cobalt in these batteries that would be even better...
