Are you saying that Toyota will have access to the 4680 technology through their relationship with Pana? How will Tesla get paid for the use of this technology? Maybe I missed something along the way. Thanks.Toyota doesn't need to licence 4680 tech; Panasonic has already announced plans to produce them, and has existing contracts with Toyota.
Toyota just needs to back up their greenwash PR with order volume sufficient to spur investment, and then carry through with their plans.
Panasonic Corp said on Thursday it is working to develop a new battery cell for Tesla Inc based on the U.S. electric vehicle maker's new cell format, as the Japanese company moves forward its decade-old partnership with Tesla.www.nasdaq.com
Edit: Guess I should have read the intervening posts. Seems like others are wondering the same thing.
