Posted November 20, 2018 06:02:47There is no denying the Model 3 has been a huge hit with the masses, but how has the battery performed so far?
With a full week left in the production line and a new batch of orders to be filled before the Model3 ships to customers, we can’t help but ask a few questions about the battery.
Tesla’s first batch of Model 3s will be the first in a line of new models that will be sold at a discounted price, as they have been sold at $US35,000 ($40,500) for the Model S and $US42,500 ($45,500).
The battery is expected to last a full five years, which means it will be up to 20 years before Tesla plans to replace its battery.
While the battery has already had the highest capacity of any lithium-ion battery, it will have to be upgraded to keep up with the electric cars going forward.
Tesla has already confirmed it will offer the new battery in “extended life” models, meaning it will last for “20, 30, or 40 years”.
Tesla’s battery will also have to meet the stringent safety requirements in the US, meaning that it will not be allowed to be used in passenger cars and SUVs.
The battery will have a lithium-polymer coating that will keep it from corroding and degrading over time.
Tesla will not sell its battery to other car manufacturers.
The battery will be produced by Lithium-Ion.
It will also be made by Panasonic and GM, and the batteries will have an MSRP of $US55,000 (about £47,000) when fully upgraded.
Tesla has said that it wants to build its batteries in large volumes so that they can compete with other carmakers.
The Model 3 will be available for sale in November and will be priced between $US39,000 and $49,000, depending on the model.
The vehicle will cost $US7,500 to $7,999 when it is fully upgraded, and it will cost more when it’s fully upgraded to $US99,000.
