So there is a point that people are not taking into consideration. Batteries produced by Tesla would be priced at production cost but batteries from LGChem, Panasonic, etc would be priced at contracted wholesale cost which includes margins for those companies.

Tesla uses third party companies to make batteries so that they can get greater volume. But when they are discussing battery prices for new processes they have developed internally, the price discussed is an internal cost with no margin.
