    Not really a surprise for the M3. Only have so much space and need to focus on keeping costs down as the "entry-level" Tesla. Trevor has detailed at great lengths that battery densities should improve over time even if physical size does not. Relative to Model 3, we could predict down the road potentially longer ranges and faster charge times, with a lighter and denser albeit same size battery pack.

    Given that the new cells appear to already be denser, I was really expecting the 3 to be offered with a 100kWh pack. Oh well.

    I predict 90 kWh top version at reveal but will cross 100 kWh within a couple of years.

    I'm thinking, with the new 2170 cell,they could come up with a 90KWH battery that would fit in the Model 3... just hoping that's true and that it's not too expensive!

    To be honest, it lowers the top model price. I can appreciate that as that's likely what I'm getting. I can put that extra 5-10k somewhere else. :cool:
