When will Tesla Motors absorb the solid state Anion-redox nanolithia cathodes for Li-ion batteries?

When will Tesla Motors absorb the solid state Anion-redox nanolithia cathodes for Li-ion batteries?

The performance in the use of this battery pack, "Solid State", is much higher than traditional liquid, cheaper production and much longer longevity. With Tesla Motors taking the lead in luxury EVs, nothing more natural than taking the lead in this technology and multiplying the performance of your vehicles. Or will you expect the competition to take the lead and add up to the benefits of even making this wonderful Tesla Motors technology "obsolete"?

Like many new battery technologies, there is typically years of testing to assure they work as expected for a specific application. 99% of these wash out due to issues with longevity, ability to fast charge, handle extreme vibration and shock, and work in a wide range of temperatures. Of course they must also have good power to weight ratio, be manufactured reliably and at a reasonable cost. I'm sure I'm leaving out a few more items.

No competitor is going to jump onto a new technology without extensive testing, as the costs of making an error would likely bankrupt a company. Let's hope the solid state battery makes it through the testing gauntlet, but it will not happen quickly.

When it has been proven to be the better battery for cars.
Until then, re-read TeslaTap above.
