faulty compounding/billion EVs

Can we possibly build 60 kWh batteries for 1 billion electric cars?
You're gonna have to get with Lomberg about the quanta.I'm just the messenger on that one.
I'd ask you to provide some specifics as to total energy demand and why it can't be electrified.
Robert Lutz,no tree-hugging green-weenie,has remarked on inductive EV charging capabilities being embedded within the highway infrastructure itself,obviating the need for large-capacity onboard battery packs,or supercharger stations as is being currently pursued by TESLA.
I don't know that we can't build a billion 60 kWh packs,but it may not be the correct question.
