Here is the article.

Favorite quote:
All the technology in the Model 3 is very next generation with nothing familiar from Model S in any way shape or form. I haven’t seen anything even vaguely Model S or Model X in this vehicle. Nothing. No DNA found. The improvement is not at all incremental. It’s like from another planet.”

-Jack Rickard

I thought it was a good read. Also like this (second favorite quote) :

We took it upon ourselves to calculate the energy density in both wh/kg and lbs/kwh. As Elon said, the cells used in the Model 3 are highest energy density cells used in any electric vehicle. This is the kind of energy density other manufacturers are promising in 2020 time frame and Tesla already has it in production today.

Not a huge fan on InsideEVs any longer. Flagrant comment editing/removal and treating anything with any kind of motor as an "ev" means I only go there to see the monthly sales numbers now (or to visit linked articles like your's :) )
