Tesla with all its 4 factories in full swing is only 3% of sales. BEV will still be a drop in the bucket.
The wish or hope.
To clean up Earth BEV sales need to be 50-60% and the only way to do that is with all the ICE want to be BEV car makers to do a 100% BEV switch.
Yes
BEV still has a high carbon foot print thru the use of fossil fuel for power and parts but something has to give. We need to stop ICE today. Tesla alone can not do that. To do that, to
Save this planet Earth
Tesla must give all its technology its design to every ICE manufacture 4 free and let them build and sell clone Tesla.
There are 1.4 billion vehicles on Earth in 2022.
Tesla cant do it alone!

The thought is noble, but do you think it's fair to say Tesla should give away all the tech it has spent billions of dollars developing for free? So Tesla spends all the money developing, all else get it free. That's not fair to Tesla, or its shareholders. It's bad business, too.

I would expect that Tesla could simply just build more factories and increase production efficiency, instead of giving away their main advantages to all their competition.

Tesla's goal is and has been to push other automakers to go EV by showing them that it can be done well and that there's demand from customers. Tesla cannot transition the world to EV by itself and needs other automakers to pull their own weight. Tesla has opened up some of their patents to others, but only if they agree to open theirs to Tesla (give and take). I don't think anyone has taken them up on that. It doesn't make sense to just give away all their patents to everybody with no conditions.

It all sounds great but it is not enough it has to be done in 5-10 years maybe less and the only way to do that is free up Tesla design. Tesla may help by freeing up Tesla BEV charging but Tesla has to do more for us and or kids.

Tesla has “open sourced” their IP. They’ve committed to not suing anyone for patents so long as they agree to the same. So far nobody has taken them up on it. Tesla literally opened up their brand new factory floor to the public where other companies could go in and photo and video the hell out of it to clone.

Much of what they do is repeatable, others aren’t interested in repeating it. The Gigapress isn’t a Tesla invention. Structural batteries other companies are doing as well. Other companies including Rivian are using the cell based batteries.

The big problems right now revolve largely around securing resources for batteries and building out manufacturing. Both of those take massive amounts of time, money, and engineering and other companies simply haven’t put the time, money, and brainpower into repeating what Tesla has done.

They have the roadmap, they just need the willingness and motivation to execute on it.

Here are some pictures to help frame your arguments. Global warming is predominantly CO2. View attachment 9253

ALL transport sectors amount to ~14% globally. Automobiles are responsible for less than ½ of all transport’s CO2. View attachment 9254

Longterm projections for Transport sector saving earth look like this: View attachment 9255

Tesla is tackling automotive, freight and Electrical energy in N.A., EU AND CH Its ASIA including China whom without their help the World is headed for 3.0°C warming. its ⅓ of the solution. SO worring about China Cold War is the limiting factor. View attachment 9256

All those percents add up. And remember, that automotive percentage doesn't include emissions between the well and the gas tank. Lots less transportation energy will be needed if we're not shipping gas over the globe.
