    The 3's batteries will use 2170 cells, not the 18650 of the S. Since the new cells are a significantly different size, the design of the modules will not be the same as that in the S. It probably uses a similar layout and cooling methodology, but beyond that they won't be the same.

    What jaguar36 said. But in order to get more cells in the S/X 100kwh packs, there was a redesign of the cooling system which slowed things down but it still uses the 18650 cells like all the other S/X packs.
