    Bigger cells, smaller car, and better energy density all add up to mean that Model 3 will have about half the number of cells as the original Model S http://buff.ly/1YdF9Yt

    Kind of a non-story. They forgot the 40kWh battery equipped Model S that was cheaper than all the others.

    Model 3 cell count will be lower than a Model S but there's more to it than just reducing the cell count. Economies of scale like we've never seen before.
