    Let's see ...
    A billion cars, at 50 kWh a pop requires 50 billion kWh, or 50,000 GWh
    Presuming a battery life of 10 years, eventual production capacity should level off at 5000 GWh a year

    Conclusion: there is more than enough room for everybody who wants to build Gigafactories. And this is before we consider battery applications for home and the power industry.
