“Tesla is growing at the fastest pace of any large manufacturer in history.We’ve now exceedeed 1M cars delivered worldwide. There’s still a long way to go, we’re still a little over 1% of total vehicles output in the world. We want to try to get, I don’t know, around 20%. This is why scale matters, in order to make a really big difference to sustainability, we have to make a lot of cars, a lot stationary packs to transition the world to sustainable technology as soon as possible.”
