Validation for an automotive cell also takes about 5 years unless it is a mild chemistry tweak of a known good design.

Yup, R&D centers are easier to spin up with small production lines. But that won’t cut it for manufacturing in volume. So in year 2-3 of validation is when the buildings to scale manufacturing break ground so hopefully they will be fully productive at the perfect time.

That’s a serious gant chart. Lol
