Tesla CEO Elon Musk said the Model 3 won’t be equipped with the larger 100 kWh battery pack.
In response to a question on Twitter, Musk said the Model 3’s wheelbase is too small to accept the larger battery.
did you just drop a hint that 3 will have 100kWh???

Further, Musk said there is no current plan to take the Model S or Model X above 100 kWH, however truck projects could receive larger battery packs to extend range for hauling.
Part of the reaction from the TMC community included disappointment from rural and cold-weather Tesla drivers who say they need extended range.
