Here's a counterpoint article, counter to the CEO's very compelling point about achieving a multi-level cell breakthrough.

QS Stock Still a Risky Gamble With Investor Lawsuits Pending | InvestorPlace

Last month, Brian Morin wrote a piece on Seeking Alpha that shocked QuantumScape believers. While acknowledging that the company’s science was “very good,” he also concluded thus: “Their batteries are small and unproven – not yet as big as an iWatch battery, and never tested outside a lab.”
He went on to question whether the technology they claim to have is even possible.

“[Making such a battery capable of running an EV] is hard – very, very hard,” Morin said. “So hard, in fact, that nobody has done it. I’ve read many dozens of research papers where scientists have tried … but then apologize for the lack of a complete working battery, and lay out the significant challenges ahead.”

PS - I don't have an issue with the second paragraph BTW, of course it hasn't been done, that would be the lure if QS can do it. My concern is how far long along the path from science project to commercial product is QS and are they $23B (market cap) along that path. Cooters
