Japanese - Parts Supply Delay?

Japanese - Parts Supply Delay?

Has anyone heard if there will be any part supply delays as a result of the Japanese Earthquake and Tsunami? Particularly Battery supply from Panasonic?

It would be very insteresting to hear any info on that, but given the fact that Tesla is not quite in full sway (as in 20K units/year) production yet I wouldn't worry too much about it for now...

"So far there’s been no impact on Tesla’s operations from the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear power plant crisis in Japan that has temporarily halted some production there, Straubel said."
