Tesla is developing its own battery cells in secret, report says – Roadshow

Curated via Twitter from CNET News’s twitter account….

Getting all of Tesla’s production on a single cell design would likely be a cost savings by itself, but developing cells that are more energy dense would allow Tesla to extend its cars’ range, but more importantly, it could allow vehicles to maintain their current range estimates with fewer cells in their packs.

Well, according to a report published Wednesday by CNBC, the truth about the lab’s location is sadly much more disappointing (it’s in Fremont, California), but what the lab is working on is pretty cool — but that’s also likely going to be problematic for Tesla’s current battery partner, Panasonic.

When we read that Tesla was developing its own battery cells in a secret lab, we naturally assumed that Elon had set this up inside a volcano on an island in the South Pacific.
