Super caps aren't of much use in extending range (but they aren't useless either). What Tesla gets out of Maxwell is the potential to use the dry coating technology they use in their super cap production in production of dry electrolyte batteries.Since maxwell does super caps. Maybe it’s a combo of super caps PLUS hi density solid state batteries??
I'll be too serious and reply to your funny comment:Proof positive, with Elon Musk teasing secret information on the CT, he is a Bond Villain.
Not a flame thrower
Space exploration, moon, mars, missiles?
Covert installations around the globe, “Gigafactories”
Worldwide “communication” satellites
Controlling charging stations
Putting in ”power” walls and solar panels. (Monitoring towers and transforming AI soldiers)
Making us wait two plus years for the CT.
Justice must be served. Petitition Tesla to prove their innocence by delivering the CT in 2020!
So I guess it' true. The CT will have a swimming pool, microwave & fridge option after all.Musk dropped this tantalizing soundbite during a conference call following Tesla's Q3 2019 financial results yesterday, saying that there’s even more to the Tesla Cybertruck:
How's that for making our wait for the Cybertruck even worse! He didn't elaborate on what information has yet to be shared, but it may have to do with its batteries. On the same conference call, Musk said this about Tesla's Battery Day coming up in April --"It's gonna blow your mind. It blows my mind, and I know it!"
So don't be surprised if the Cybertruck's yet-to-be-revealed awesomeness is new batteries with lower cost and great energy density.
real opinion, Musk’s endeavors make the world a better place. No insight to motives as I do not know him personally. Perception is more good than nefarious motives.I'll be too serious and reply to your funny comment:
If you look at all of musks ventures, they're all appropriate for Mars Colonization. He has spacecraft, solar panels, batteries,tunneling equipment, autonomous programming, etc. He is friendly with Mars promoting scientists, has stated he wants to colonize mars, etc.
So he can send a space ship loaded with autonomous CyberTruck variants who can tow autonomous tunnel boring machines to various locations to start building subsurface habitations. Other Cyber Trucks with outsized solar panels and batteries can stay in optimum solar collection positions for most of the day then bring their stored solar back to storage units.
And then I guess flamethrowers......for....I dunno.
Anyway the point is he has all the primary tech you need to build a base on Mars.
