    I don't believe so. Next step is more energy density with the cells.

    There is no room at all for more cells in the current battery casing, no. Thing is jam packed full of cells. I mean, maybe if they did away with liquid cooling and supercharging and a whole bunch of other stuff, but... that wont happen. :)
