Podcast: Tesla’s Game-Changing New Battery Design

We just posted our podcast episode with Ravi Kempaiah, where we go into the weeds about Tesla’s game-changing new battery design that will change electric transformation. Check it out with this link or wherever you listen to podcasts.

podcast with Ravi Kempaiah about Tesla's Battery Day announcement of the new 4680 lithium-ion battery

We talk about how it will make car batteries 56% cheaper, and eliminates cobalt, one of the costliest materials in terms of mining cost, human lives and carbon footprint. Tesla has figured out how to source the materials within the U.S. (or near the factory in other countries) eliminating the massive carbon footprint of shipping those materials globally. The design of this cell is revolutionary, it’s so different. We expect this technology will eventually make its way to e-bikes.
