A Twitter user has pointed out that Tesla has won "California Over" in early, and that 2020 marked the year that the company has "won the US over," with Elon Musk clarifying that it is not about "winning anyone over."
Moreover, the CEO further explains that its business is more into "production-limited" that would supplement its suppliers of battery cells.
Elon Musk is known to be eccentric and unlike most CEOs, which have expressed his devotion to technology, and making Tesla perfect its expertise and production of electric vehicles that would supply to the world. Moreover, Tesla aims to be a global brand that brings electric vehicle technology to the rest of the world has slowly been happening in recent events.
Moreover, it controls a massive market share in the United States' EV industry as it is still one of the high grossing companies for electric vehicle technology, as its lineup offers an almost complete variety of cars.
Tesla to Supplement Max Production to Battery Suppliers of the Company
A Twitter user called Sam Korus (@skorusARK) caught the attention of Elon Musk, especially after a thread and series of his tweets that explains Tesla's prominence in the country, and its control on California for the Model 3. The user continued his thread to explain how Tesla has been shaking up the market with its mass-selling electric vehicles.
This is not about winning anyone over. We are production-limited. The reason we are making our own cells is to *supplement* max production of suppliers. Even moving at full speed, they cannot build enough cells.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) February 25, 2021
Elon Musk (@elonmusk) replied, saying that its business strategy is not to win anyone over, and it is to supply the best possible technology that also helps its suppliers with its need in battery cell production. The CEO further explained that the existing supplier and manufacturer relationship with other companies have massive concerns on battery cell production.
Elon Musk is known to prioritize design, performance, and other qualities of a vehicle, instead of profiting from the business and their prominence in electric vehicle production. This quality of the CEO has been one of the most recognized traits of his, aside from his comical side, as critics praise him over this.
Tesla Battery Cells Shift to 'More Ethical-mined' Metals Like Iron, Lithium
In the thread, another user has brought up a controversial question to the CEO, now about the "non-ethically sourced" materials for battery cell production and other components of its electric vehicles. The Twitter user then further explains that this was the reason why Elon Musk and Tesla have initially been reported to go into the mining business in Nevada.
Nickel is our biggest concern for scaling lithium-ion cell production. That’s why we are shifting standard range cars to an iron cathode. Plenty of iron (and lithium)!— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) February 25, 2021
Here, the CEO explains that Nickel is one of its most limited components for the lithium-ion cell, and has been subject to scarcity, which led to the need to mine. However, Elon Musk explained that its standard range is already looking into alternatives of easier mined metals like iron and lithium.
Musk also explains that the standard Li-On battery would soon change into iron cathodes to answer the scarcity and alternatives for its batteries.
