Sweden’s Northvolt is a respectable firm whose CEO Peter Carlsson used to work for Tesla (TSLA.O). Now they try to cover European market with large-scale battery cell, because automakers and industrial firms have so far been largely reliant on Asian imports in this segment.

If we compare them to Tesla or even Chinese, they are only tipping their toes in the water. None of other car companies don't have a large source of batteries to compete with Tesla.

If they want to keep the market they will have to commit more money that they have so far. If they lose market share it will cost way more money to get it back.
