What are people’s guesses. I think it would have to be competitive with Lucid’s altho they could offer different ranges. poll for top range.

530 Miles. That’s for the new Long Range model. Using us range numbers.

Not sure lucid is much of a benchmark, it will literally be a decade before they ship any reasonable volumes - much less to other parts of the world than California....

500+ is my guess. Low volume production start of the new battery. Also they need cheaper replacement packs for older cars and a 500 mile pack means they might be able to make a half pack for original cars for much cheaper than the old 7000 cell design.

Due to low production volume, Tesla's primary goal for the "refresh" is likely manufacturing efficiency with a second goal on improving the S & X models, especially if they can produce S and X from the same production line and create more capacity for producing the higher volume 3/Y models at Fremont.

So if we do see further range improvements in S/X, it's likely because Tesla can not only increase the range, but also reducing the manufacturing costs - perhaps shifting to sharing technology with 3/Y.

Will be interesting to see what Tesla announces when they finally unveil the changes that are now in production.

In the past, when Tesla announced model changes, they usually make the announcement when those changes go into production.

Since that hasn't happened this time - they are building new S/X and haven't announced what's changed (or evidently have delivered any new vehicles), the changes probably are more significant - perhaps even enough to require the vehicles to get recertified...

My understanding is that's true, but there are TWO discrete lines. They take up an inordinate amount of space compared to their volume.

Ok, that’s possible - in that case replacing one with different production could make sense. Haven’t had the pleasure to see the plant - only visited the Tilburg operation.
