    Thread on the 3 forum says the EPA numbers are coming in at 333-334 miles for the RWD, larger battery 3. What say you people about what, if anything, this implies for the S battery size within the next 6 months?

    Well, there is the rumor of 130 kW battery.

    Speculation added that it might be 2170 based to fit.

    A lot of the information for this article is pulled from a TMC thread where there is some in depth analysis of EPA documents. You can find the long and detailed discussion in this thread if you are interested: [Spoiler Alert + Mild Speculation] Tesla has created a monster!

    Please, flap your lips all you want! A 400-mile range on a Model S would be a very welcome thing.
