    Excellent.
    @28:35- Very interesting to hear JB state he expected "similar" battery improvement from the Roadster to the Model S to take place with Gen3- 40% less mass and cost. Good news.

    Great interview... very inspiring and exciting to hear his confidence in the fact that battery tech improves 8-10% each year and extrapolate that batteries can double in range in 10 years or halve in weight/volume/price. His words clearly reassure those who hold TSLA stock for the "long-haul" and those who see EVs becoming the mass mode of transport in the future. Great find.
