    If they can achieve that kind of density on the Model 3 with the new cell design were going to see some serious range with that car.

    With the new batteries, what is your best guess for the minimum/maximum range. My guess is it's going to be 230 minimum to 300 maximum for the larger battery.

    I agree. Tesla was being very conservative at the reveal event. They surely didn't want to tip their hand until the competition (Bolt, LEAF etc) had their 200 Mile cars out before they dropped their bomb :)

    That would be major blow to the competition ...I hope M3 will have 100Kwh option, I think that would mean close to 400 mile or 640 km range. That would be insane o_O.

    I do not understand why you guys are hoping for a 100 kWh battery. As far as I know the battery is the most expensive part of he car. So I would think that a larger battery would make the car very expensive. (Model 3)

    My two cents.

    Keep in mind these high end batteries are profitable for Tesla so it's good for their bottom line and there are lots of people who will sell their existing car and buy a new one just like they did when the D came out.

    Other German car makers are announcing plans for 90kWh battery packs but Tesla is not sitting still in the meantime.

    All this does is shows that battery tech is still improving given the same physical space though chemistry alone.

    Choice is good. Winter driving and fewer superchargers in the central states and midwest make range a nice option and essential at times. The first leg of my annual holiday trip to the midwest starts with 225 miles to the first supercharger. On a cold and slippery December morning this could be tight. A reliable 294 mile summer range would shrink to 240 or less quickly and that is with a 100% charge.

    Yeah bigger battery options won't hurt the base car. I'm not really intending on getting a giant battery on mine as I've got so many chargers close at hand. I will consider it if the larger batteries also bring added features.

    Larger battery = Larger progress on battery technology! My hope is for a large range that will end all of the debate and anxiety about range. Even if you choose not to get the biggest battery, your battery pack will weigh less if there is a new battery chemistry that reduces the need for batteries.
