Tweet Suggests Hardware Changes Coming For Tesla Model S & Model X | CleanTechnica
Elon Musk has hinted that Tesla is getting close to making a battery pack with a service life of 1 million miles. Could longer battery life be part of the new batteries coming for the S and X? “New configurations” suggests different battery sizes may be in the offing. The Model 3 will soon have a 100 kWh option. Perhaps the S and X will be offered with a 110 or 120 kWh battery option? If so, the Model S could offer up to 400 miles of range, a number that would leave most competitors in the dust. Different battery sizes could also allow Tesla to adopt new pricing strategies to help boost sales of the Model S and Model X.
New Charge Port
This one could be huge. If Tesla began offering owners the ability to use CCS charging stations, it would greatly expand the number of places they could plug in while away from home. This is something many Tesla owners have been hoping for and it may suggest — or at least hint at — a convergence in charging standards, which is something that could help accelerate the EV revolution.
