Tesla is building a massive factory for making batteries.
The late '90s GM version of the electric car was sabotaged by big oil as about 1800 of them were crushed. In a series of maneuvers by big corporate Chevron ended up with exclusive rights to manufacture nickel batteries. The patent ran out in 2014, but it's my bet that big oil will try some legal shenanigans to stop Musk.
Here is the story of the ev1, a tale of how big corporate decides what you can have and what you can't. Our political system is totally subservient to these rulers of the universe. People need to wake up.
