for the single and dual motor versions they will not be stacked. for the tri motor, with essentially double the capacity, the packs will be stacked. This has been confirmed previously.I suspected the dual motor might come out first due to battery constraints. What did not occur to me is that they might use different chemistries for the different models. People used to say they would stack the batteries. Having recently seen some details on the structural pack I don't think that is the case. They will either pack the batteries tighter, change the chemistry or both for the different ranges.
I am not sure why everyone is thinking the dual will be first? There had been statements made previously as well that both the dual and tri would be the first off the line. Elon talked during battery day about the possibility of using different chemistries, so in theory, the CT isnt "competing" for batteries/cells with anything other than the Semi, which is likely not to be in full production yet.
