That's very likely the battery going into the Cybertruck

The cells as structural member is what they started doing in e-bikes last couple years but taking it another step.

Cool, but means upgrading your pack would require deep surgery.

Elon said that the High Nickel cathode option is optimal for vehicles like the Cybertruck...

FWIW - this was mainly an empty event. The manufacturing and innovations are great, but nothing about how the battery technology applies to the products already announced.

There was a ton of information on how it applies...

...But no specs, if that's what you mean.

Well there we go - if I heard them right I shouldn't/don't need to wait for my Cybertruck for V2H (even though they were talking V2G). Perhaps battery wall is in my future.

I watched the presentation, but got bored with the redundant questions towards the end and left the site.

I did like what Tesla will do to make the batteries cheaper, better, and use less of a process. Since I'm number 235K-ish, I have time to wait for the new style batteries. So my CT will fly down the highway and get more mileage before the cops get me. :cool:

So Tesla is moving to No Pack, while others like Rivian are still designing their first packs.
