Tesla Model 3 to Have 30% More Energy Efficient Battery Than Model S
 

Model 3’s battery will be denser than Model S’s original one

Tesla’s Model 3 is in news from the past many months. The company is claiming it to be one of the best EVs introduced by Tesla ever. The car is supposed to have better mileage and a great battery power too.

The details of battery haven’t been disclosed yet. Jeff Evanson, who is Tesla’s Vice President of Investor Relations has said earlier on that the base version of Tesla Model 3 will have more than 215 miles range.

The car will be equipped with a battery pack smaller than 60kWh. However there will be better options for the car too. 

In a recent conference the Tesla CTO JB Straubel said that the new Tesla cars have seen improvement of energy density by 30 percent.

According to the information, by Electrek, the difference between the energy density between the Model S and Model 3 is 30 percent. This result was deduced due to the introduction of performance oriented batteries which are denser than older ones. 

According to Tesla, the battery technology is enhancing day by day and will be more productive in low cost in a few years too.

The first experience of this 30 percent improved performance can be seen in the upcoming Tesla Model 3. However according to Tesla, many other products have showcased an enhanced battery power too. 

If we look at the older models of Tesla’s products, the efficiency increase can be deduced pretty easily. The first generation power pack by company weighed 1720kg and delivered an energy of 95kWh which roughly translated the energy density to be 55Wh’kg. On the other hand the latest generation Power pack 2 offers an energy density of 130Wh/kg which is triple than that of first generation.
