This may be true but do you really think Tesla is going to burn 2-3x number of 4680 cells than the Model Y when the ramp itself is going poorly. Since 2019 demand exploded for Tesla, strategically it would not be smart to load up the CT will that many cells. We'll have to see, I think double...
Almost forgot :D
True, good point.
I think the cover can be wound and still have room for the pack underneath. I feel very strongly that the structural pack will be the length of the inside wheelbase, casting to casting.
Thanks for drawing it out, that would definitely require a double stacked pack. In my opinion Tesla will do this:
The structural component of the pack, their big breakthrough, will be casting to casting. (Again in my humble opinion) The rigidity of the Cybertruck will be next level for a...
I add some thoughts on what a hypothetical 722V pack could look like on the Cybertruck here: https://www.cybertruckownersclub.com/forum/threads/cybertruck-range-prediction-cell-calculation-more-sources.5402/
I also hypothesize on some under 450V options too.
Yeah I think its quite possible the width of the CT supports 16, maybe even 18 bandoliers. Too hard to say though, I wanted to stay conservative. I don't think it would spoil the voltage, can always change the series/parallel arrangement to get it within spec. My 722V hypothetical could easily...
It does :) that's why I waited until the munro video came out to confirm this. I counted the cells in the bandolier its this same design. We'll see in the next month but I think there's much more room wide to add another cell group - even in the MY and definitely in the CT.
We don't really have enough information to calculate the width, I made a rough estimation. Take a look at the picture below of a 4680 structural model y. They put a spacer in the side of the pack here, it just happens to be roughly exactly the width of half a group of cells. There's two of those...
Interesting, if they only use space in the passenger floor they would probably have to double stack. Given that in all other Tesla models the battery pack is between the front and rear casting I assumed using wheelbase was a decent barometer. Glad the post sparked some conversation.
Hi everyone, I have been wanting to put these predictions together for a while and now we finally have some concrete data. We do still have to make some assumptions on the Cybertruck itself as well as what 4680 yields will be in a year so this will be a range. TLDR at bottom.
Lets start with...
Official Tesla Q2 Transcript later in the call:
Thank you very much. And the last question is, when will the Cybertruck be officially available?
Elon Musk -- Chief Executive Officer and Product Architect
We're hoping to start delivering them in the middle of next year...
9 panels at 300W each puts this at 2.7kW peak output. At 5 good usable sun hours per day that puts us at 13.5kWh of energy per day.
Assuming CT is 400wh/mi == 2.5 miles per kWh:
- 13.5kWh * 2.5 miles/kWh = 33.75 miles per day.
