FYI: The story was just about Elon’s tweet so nothing new.

That is the mindblowing news Elon has been promising...the new batteries will be powered by Redbull! The only downside is Teslas handling will now feel a little jittery.

I'm eagerly anticipating what this might mean. If it is something like 20% to 40% increase in energy density, then range just increased significantly while reducing weight. I can't wait until next Tuesday.
I wonder if anybody has tried to separate the contribution of energy density of the chemistry vs energy density at the pack level due to fewer voids. I guess this is the difference in Watt/KG Watt/liter. The recent Sandy Maduro break down really brought the reduction in voids to my attention.

There's a slide in the battery day presentation that does this:

The range increase is basically your volume question, tho its answer is mixed between arrangement and new materials in the car. The slide with the power/range answers the arrangement question more directly.

It says it's a small increase in volume from form factor alone. But has you can see from the other slide, the entire pack sees a boost, like Munro said.
