Tesla also released a video of the battery cell production line in action:
“Published on Jan 5, 2017 by Tesla Garage:
‘…the exit rate of cells will be faster than bullets from a machine gun.’ Elon Musk.
The new cell format, 21 millimeters in diameter and 70 millimeters long, provides significant improvements in energy density over the more traditional 18650 cells currently being used on its fleet of vehicles.
The high performance cylindrical “2170 cell” was jointly designed and engineered by Tesla and Panasonic to offer the best performance at the lowest production cost in an optimal form factor for both electric vehicles and energy products.”
Other topics of discussion will include an election for two new Board of Director members to fill vacant positions, the latest EV industry and charging station infrastructure news, progress descriptions of member EV restoration efforts, and scheduling of an EV workshop series beginning in March.
Come join the fun and good fellowship to support the development of electric car infrastructure within the state of Nevada.
