A battery shortage for the Model Y
Panasonic has just announced that the future consumer demand for the battery directly linked to the production of the Model Y will be affected by a shortage and they will not be able to meet the increasing demand.
Kazuhiro Tsuga, Panasonic CEO says that the plans promised next year by Elon Musk will not be possible with this rate of battery production . The Gigafactory 1 will struggle to ensure a sufficient quantity.
Tesla's hopes rest on its Chinese project. The Gigafactory 3, which should come out of the ground by the end of the year, will be able to produce, according to Tesla, enough to relieve the first factory. We doubt Tesla's ability to find and avoid future problems. On the other hand, what will happen to the shortage of precious elements?
