This is a far cry from satisfying the demand for 100 TWh total that we need just to replace all cars and light trucks. Not to mention stationary storage, farming, mining, and transport.

So,where is Ford,GM,Fiat-Chrysler,Volkswagen AG,Tata,Renault,Rivian,etc..?
Why is the smallest company on Earth expected to save the Earth single-handedly?
