Tesla P100D Ludicrous secretly has more performance, Musk says new easter egg will unlock it
Someone with some background in battery tech want to wager on the physical possibility of the p100d battery capacity being more akin to p200d? I know nothing and I don't actually expect it to be double but even if it's 50% over what we assume that would be nuts.
I know those numbers are pure fantasy but anyone want to give a more reasonable guess what the potential of the p100 Easter egg battery capacity could be if the Easter egg is indeed range?
More kW... probably not more kWh...
Right. But how many more? I mean. Imagine if the model 3 being more lightweight than an S turns out to have 30% more range than the S with a comparable battery and then turns out that the p100 battery actually has 200kw giving the model 3 an obscene 800 mile range
In addition to more, the car needs to sustain power longer and hopefully run in the 10.6's. We've moved from trying to break 11 secs down to getting in to 10.6's.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems like the phrase "Easter Egg" has been mostly used for fun elements hidden away within the touch and instrument screens of the car... and less about physical things.
You are right. But the left handed comment coupled with the hush hush nature of the 2170 true battery density points to it being potentially something more this time.
According to Elon or maybe it was JB, the 100KW packs are still using the 18650 cells and not the 2170's. The next jump in battery capacity will come from a new pack design with the 2170's.
Repost from my thread: I think this time it will unleash more performance. EM again on Twitter, credit Electrek for the movie reference catch: (current P100DL has been using left hand the whole time!)
I'm thinking 2.3 0-60 for the S and 2.7 for the X...
nothing too crazy
Kw = power = acceleration
kWh = battery capacity = range
Dunno... my point was that no matter how many more kW it'll still be a P100D (100kWh)
They did up the kW of the P85 ~5% or so... IIRC it's currently ~560kW... so maybe an even 600kW?

You're be facetious I assume. That fits any definition of crazy that I know of.
