I'm pretty excited about the this news. Looks like they might be able to greatly improve the car with Daimler's help. Does anyone know anything about the Li-Tec batteries? Exciting part from Autobloggreen article "Musk responding to question about the number of cells in the battery pack, says the current plan is to use the laptop cells for the model S with up to 8,000 cells. However, they may switch to a different cell design that would only use 1/4 of the cells or less"
