Heat pump description in the EPA docs:

“Tesla Cybertruck’s heat pump reduces the energy required by the HVAC system in both heating and cooling scenarios. The energy required to heat the cabin varies by weather and occupant comfort needs, but on-average consumes approximately 10% of the total energy available for driving. However, even moderately cold weather (0°C), consumption can increase to 25% or more. A heat pump consumes a small amount of electrical energy to thermodynamically “upgrade” low-temperature (less useful) thermal energy to higher-temperature (more useful) thermal energy, making it suitable for occupant comfort. That is, for a given electrical power input, a heat pump will return 1 to 5x in useful heating power; an electrical cabin heater provides 1:1 in heating power, and therefore is far less efficient.”

Interesting block of information. Am I reading this wrong? 150 kWh battery capacity (buffer takes it down to 123 kWh) and 3 permanent motors (no induction)?

To me it looks like 170 kW with 150 usable, but I am not familiar with the format of these documents.

Battery Specific Energy: 170 Wh/kg
I think this is the pack's energy density.

Different classification of vehicle.

Meaning different driver and license needed.

So 123 kWh usable is 18% buffer. I think the 100kWh battery has a 5kWh lower buffer and some batteries had an upper buffer, but probably not in this case. 27kWh lower buffer does seem like a bit much, unless they're reserving a larger amount because of the 48V system.

If the total energy is 150kWh, that’s 82% usable at launch. If that going up to 93%, that would be ~140 kWh and 385 miles. Maybe software locked or sandbagging. If the pack size is really that big, the castings, exoskeleton, 48V and cams saved a lot more weight than we thought.

815V x 150Ah = 122.3kWh, rounding error away from 123kWh.

Since there's no units on those lines of the doc, I'm going with that as my guess.
I sent Bard the photo of that page and this was its response:

According to the EPA filing for the Cybertruck, the battery pack has the following specifications:
  • Battery Type: Lithium Ion
  • Number of Battery Packs: 1
  • Total Voltage of Battery Packs: 816
  • Battery Energy Capacity: 150 kWh
  • Battery Specific Energy: 170 Wh/kg
  • Battery Charger Type: On-Board
This means that the Cybertruck battery pack has a very high energy capacity, which is what gives it its long range. The battery pack is also relatively lightweight, which helps to improve the vehicle's performance and efficiency.

Here is a table that summarizes the specs of the Cybertruck battery pack:

| Specification | Value | |---|---|---| | Battery Type | Lithium Ion | | Number of Battery Packs | 1 | | Total Voltage of Battery Packs | 816 V | | Battery Energy Capacity | 150 kWh | | Battery Specific Energy | 170 Wh/kg | | Battery Charger Type | On-Board |

yes, it’s a listing of 150Ah, not 150kWh - converts to 123kWh


This submission of the performance data is apparently of dummy data, and not yet final data for EPA rating
