Is Tesla actually sustainable?

In this Our Changing Climate environmental video essay, I look at whether Tesla cars are actually sustainable.

Elon Musk’s Tesla models like the Model 3 or Model X initially have a higher environmental impact than gas-powered cars but seem to be more sustainable in the long run.
