Construction of the world's biggest Li-ion battery completed

Construction of the world's biggest Li-ion battery completed

Musk really cares about Aussie electricity and got pretty teary about it in a recent interview with Channel 9's 60 Minutes. He estimated it would cost around US $50m.

The car manufacturer also claimed that the car's powertrain was reliable for one million miles.

Musk, in a very Steve Jobs-like, "Oh, and one more thing" moment, introduced the second-generation Tesla Roadster.

When fully charged, the Tesla Powerpack is expected to hold enough power for 8,000 homes for 24 hours, or more than 30,000 houses for an hour during a blackout.

"This is not a minor foray into the frontier", said Mr Musk at the time.

That's precisely the kind of ignorance we're up against.

The truck is powered by four independent electric motors mounted on each wheel which can alter torque to eliminate jackknifing.

In this Oct. 27, 2016 photo, Rhonda "Honey" Phillips poses next to a Tesla Powerwall battery and inverter connected to a solar panel array in her yard in Middletown Springs, Vt. "As we fine-tune and standardize the production and installation process, we expect to ramp Solar Roof production considerably in 2018".

The key issue here is battery costs.

He had such confidence in his company that he guaranteed fellow billionaire Mike Cannon-Brookes that if it wasn't done in that time, it'd be free.

When the grid connection deal was signed on Sept 29, Tesla was already half way through installing the battery packs. The $1.3-million McLaren P1 hits 100 in 2.7 seconds (tweaked versions can reach 100 in 2.4 seconds); the Porsche 918 Spyder goes 0-100 in 2.6 seconds and costs $847,000.

The Tesla electric semi truck also boasts of a better drag coefficient compared to the Bugatti Chiron, notes Express.

The battery is part of a $550 million plan by South Australia to help guarantee its power supply after a string of blackouts over the last 18 months.

The first trucks will begin rolling off the production line in 2019.

The speed crown matters to auto makers.

While tech gurus and experts are appreciating the state of the at design of the truck, the truck driving experts are somewhat skeptical. But of course that makes the battery more expensive.
