Tesla unveiled ‘tabless’ battery cells for range improvement
Tesla unveiled plans to develop a “tabless” battery that could improve an electric car’s range and power. The company will produce its new batteries in-house which Tesla CEO Elon Musk predicts that helps to reduce costs and allows the company to sell the electric vehicles as the price of ICE vehicles.
This battery is expected to reduce Tesla’s battery cost per kilowatt-hour, the unit of energy most commonly used to measure the capacity of the battery packs in modern electric vehicles. The lower the costs of the battery will allow Tesla to lower the costs of its cars. the new battery was announced during the company’s much-hyped “Battery Day” event in Palo Alto, California.
