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.”
