LiFePo and prismatic cells are not going to be a solution for the likes of GM and BMW.

I've yet to see anything about prismatic cells being worse than Tesla's cylindrical. Have you?

LiFePo is definitely an inferior chemistry for auto, but it's gonna be super cheap in comparison given the lack of nickel and cobalt, particularly if cobalt doubles or triples again in price.

There hasn't been a lot of recent evidence as far as I'm concerned about Tesla's advantage on batteries.
