From today’s Ride The Lightning podcast. Nothing surprising here, but it’s cool to see some smoke coming from Tesla on these fronts.

It's hard to say without knowing the kWh size, but if Tesla uses a 150kWh with 4680 cells with 15,000 cycle life I would say no problem getting 700 mile range per charge.

Well if you heard it on the internet it MUST be true. I'm waiting to hear it from E. M.
In 2020 are there other places to “hear” things? I guess I shouldn’t have cancelled my Tesla newspaper subscription.

But seriously, McCaffrey has interviewed E M a couple times, maybe he can ask Elon about it next time they talk.

So you see no problem with the CT having a consumption of 214 Wh/mi? What magic are you thinking would make it possible for the bigger, heavier CT to deliver better consumption than 3EXY?

You're right, 165kWh battery instead of 150kWh.

That Warren redlich guy on YouTube keeps saying the CT will have a 150 kWH battery for the tri motor. The math doesn’t add up. Cleanerwatt did a video showing the WH/mile to require at least a 180 kWh battery. With 560, seems clear it will be a 200 kWh battery

Yeah I know the math. But I just believe the 4680 will be ABLE to deliver a 700 mile range in the CT but Tesla won't allow it.

Realistically the CT is going to take 400 - 500 Wh/mi. For 700 mi that's 280 - 350 kWh. So you are thinking that the battery in the CT will be capable of 280 - 350 kWh but Tesla is going to choke it at 200 - 250 kWh. Well that would mean 100% SoC on the gauge corresponds to 0.71C. That's, of course, pretty conservative but would allow charging to 100% SoC with little or no taper!

Yep! :) There is no need to worry about SoC anymore with a million+ mile battery imo. I could care less about the battery being used later for other purposes. I'm buying the CT and want all the range I can get. But, Tesla has this master plan you see.

Should Tesla choose to take over the entire Pickup industry (ICE and EV) in one Fell Swoop with the Cybertruck, the Golden Key is a 1,000 mile range.

If so, GigaFactory Texas best be ready to produce both Quality and Volume.

Within 3 years the Pickup industry would be Tesla's.
