Dave Froman I’ve been in this industry for years. When the country ran on coal fired electricity, it was cheap at night because the coal plants couldn’t simply turn their generation off or down. In today’s world, that’s not the case. In very little of the country is power cheaper off peak. Same price all day.

I've enjoyed several of your video presentations for their clear, informative and approachable content. The reason I'm commenting here is because of your take on ICE cars being dead... This isn't the same as ice-houses and refrigeration or horse drawn buggies vs the Model T! And no, I'm not talking Amish/RV pocket communities holding out for the way things were, but simple affordability. You talk about manufacturing, range and cost vs ICE vehicles. What you don't talk about is maintenance. I can replace, quite easily (well... readily) a good number of components on my car, and most affordably! On it's death bed?? (cue Monte Python, ICE: 'I'm not dead yet...!')

I read a book by the tesla. I'm not very clever I struggle alot. But I do wonder alot. After reading the tesla book. I wondered about energy conservation and the earth. The earth to me looks like one big battery. All the. Waste heat and energy just sat there doing nothing and all we do no matter how clever we think we are. We create more ways of Wasing energy.

Looks like CBAK Energy Technology, Inc. had also come out with a tabless battery design. I randomly bought 955 shares today of CBAT because it was the only stock that was moving up from all the EV stocks I’m watching. I just had some surplus funds in my Robinhood and so I put it all to work. Then I saw the big jump and I started researching why. I couldn’t find anything anywhere....until I found this lonely random article dated 09/28/20: “CBAK Energy has Successfully Developed Large-sized Cylindrical Tabless Battery with 25% Boost in Energy Density and 20% Cost Saving”. What the?! Do you know what that means?! This is HUGE! I don’t want to put the link to the article here because I don’t want you to think I’m trying to spam. Google the article for yourself. The quote above is the title of the article. As far as I know, Tesla is the only one that developed a tabless battery design. Googled around “tabless battery” and the only thing Google returns is about Tesla. On Tesla Battery Day all they talk about is their “tabless battery design” and how it is a game changer for them. Now I stumble across CBAK Energy doing the same?! Look into this and tell me where my thinking is wrong. According to the article, “CBAK Energy Technology, Inc. ("CBAK Energy",NASDAQ: CBAT), a world's leading lithium-ion battery provider”...wow. The worlds leading!!! Let me know what you think. Have a good day.

Nobody wants ICE cars to go away more than me but I didn't see any information about charge times. If you want to drive across the US in an electric car then the recharge time needs to be roughly the equivalent to the time needed to refill your gas tank unless we start embedding a charging system in the highways.

But fossil fuel is still burned to charge these batteries so they vehicles are still depending on fossil fuel. As a country we need to start generating more energy. I like solar and am not a fan of the wind mills. They have put up hundreds here in Michigan and I drive by and a good number of them are not working and some are in the same location. COST EFFECTIVE is the name of the game! Just down the road from me (I live in the country THANK GOD) they are building a huge solar farm and I am excited to see it go in, on Facebook we have a little group that is for our local area and people are upset about it going in, I do not understand that at all. I do not think the internal combustion engine will go away, its to dependable. I know I am retired and still drive 66 miles a day minimum driving my Grand Daughter to school and back. Sometimes I drive for hundreds of miles and I only like driving a truck. No sense going if I do not have what I need when I get there. Safety, well I know I have a much better chance of living through a accident in a truck then some tiny car. I do not want a vehicle that I have to stop and wait 8 hours for it to charge to go somewhere and here in Michigan they are raping us for our electric bill (Thanks Obama) and if we use more energy they charge us more per kilowatt so the additional amount required to charge a vehicle would make all the electricity we purchase more expensive. The little geek in me loves it but the old man with lots of experience says no to many problem to worry about.

I disagree about the combustion engine being dead. First, only a wealthy person can afford a Tesla. Second, batteries do awful in extreme cold and heat. Third, the infrastructure isn't there to support the usage of EVs. Hybrids, yes. I've owned 3, including two plug-in hybrids but full EV's for the masses is many years away. When it does come, look for Toyota, Honda and Ford to dominate. Tesla will still be a rich person's toy.

Electric vehicle design is truly exciting. From an urban POV it's the future. Question is where is the Electrical Power coming from? Unless the innovation in power generation catches up to usage we are just displacing the problem somewhere else. For now a hybrid approach with the emphases on electric and a smaller ICE as an emergency sustainer in case there are no charging stations en route is a necessity for undeveloped areas. The issue is infrastructure as much as vehicle technology. It will take decades to replace the old tech much as it was with the telephone industry. Speaking of which, many third world countries have bypassed land lines all together and went straight to cell towers. Perhaps the same will apply to transportation as well. The future is looking bright indeed. Go Tesla.

nice video, EV's have been around for years , but petrol/diesel engines cars, are still going to be around for years to come, you still get more energy from petrol then you can get from a battery, look at the energy density you get more energy from a tank of petrol and more mileage then you would get from a battery of the same size and weight if you compared it! EV's are great as town and small cities, but for long mileage/ long distances it's going to be the petrol cars.

What I don’t understand about this industry is why these cars are called “electric vehicles” it seems to me that they are “battery vehicles”. Why not embrace that these are “battery cars”. It is the battery technology that distinguishes them. This is the core of this new industry. When I think of a “electric car” I think of the bumper car with the wand that connects the car to a circuit or the electric train or bus with a wand that connects to an overhead cable. It’s the battery that makes these vehicles so interesting to me.

i just saw the usual progress at battery day. nothing more, nothing less. this is happening everywhere. the difference is that tesla is making a huge marketing out of it to support the stock bubble. others do their innovations without such a marketing event. they just deliver. if you look at reality, you see that a similar car like the M3/MY with similar range now costs 10k€ less at VW. tesla fanboys talk themselves into a nice bubble while reality is different.

I myself was a bit disapointed by the BID, I think I've hoped to see production was standing further than it was now; mainly becourse it was delayed two times. This could have happend in march. I thought it was delayed becourse of reasons that covid had delayed the outroll off the batteryline, or the inventions weren't proving to be as stable as tought. But it was just delayed becourse,... well they didn't want to stand on a podium while covid was around. And now they knew that the virus would be around a long time, so they went with it. But what me disepionted the most was that in the time from march till the exual event the price off the base models off 3 and Y had gone up, hey didn't gave a accual "date" when the realy Tesla for all people will come around. Somewhere around 2025, there will be a car tha will cost around $25.000. Whel they, Elon, said that the base model 3 would be around $30.000, yet now the base model cost over $50.000. So why would that car realy be around $25.000; especialy if it would have full autopilot. I know esla is finaly making money and it has to keep it that way, but I hoped that the pricedrop in batteries would also mean that all the cars can drop in price. But the awnser Elon gave to the direct question, if the prices will drop he reacted, that the range would go up is more likely. I thought that the batterie was the graetest cost offall the EV's, so if you can drop that price by as mutch as Tesla is trying to do, ... It would be nice to see for example the new model S (a new version of the dated first real model from Tesla) droped in price like 25%. And than when they reinvent the model 3 and Y the same rate off "discount". hat would put everybody in a EV. I still hope Tesla can (and I realy think it will) make these enouncesments true within the timeline they set. Then I can sill be able to see al the change realy coming along. But untill they, or others do, it still will be ice-cars for me.

Let me tell you at the outset that it does not relate to this video but all your work in general. I have been watching your videos for couple of months now and have always been thinking to write my appreciation for your work. Unfortunately, I never got that chance and fortunately I’m here today writing my first review about your YouTube Channel. I got to hear about your Channel from the Founder (Pramit) of a Social Tech Start-Up which I’m working with. He is a visually impaired and building an App named as Louie Voice Control that allows a user to do everything within his phone with just voice commands. None of the big names like Google Assistant, Alexa, Siri can do everything that Louie does. These Voice Assistants tend to be superficial & will allow a user to do only 2-3 things within an App. Louie in comparison will fully voice control an App - each and every feature within the App. Also Voice Assistants or Personal Assistants have a nasty habit of going silent every now and then. Louie in comparison does a two-way continuous interaction – just like a human interaction with the user. In short, Louie is an accessibility App and can be used by all voice-lovers including but not limited to visually impaired, blind, motor-disabled, elderly, people with limited manual dexterity and all hands-free lovers. Between Pramit has based many of his devices purchasing decision on your videos and he has always been happy about it. May be this is why he recommends your videos to almost everyone in the team. Now, coming back to myself – since I’m always interested in Tech stuff, Pramit recommended me to subscribe to your Channel & watch your videos. In fact, we got many ideas for our YouTube Channel after constantly following your work. I love the simplicity of message and your communication style in each of your videos. Great work, keep it up! There must be so many people who look up to your videos.

I understand that the bigger the battery cell the higher the capacity of that cell, no brainer. I only question is how do they arrange these cells to fit the most per battery. The larger the cylinder cell the more wasted space will develope between cells. That's why you use a smaller cell to mitigate that issue. So why is bigger better in this scenario?

The facts, which you should at least acknowledge, are that electric cars do not compete with the used car market. For that to happen there needs to be electric motor and battery bank bolt-in replacements for existing internal combustion engine cars. If someone is going to buy a $2,000 car to replace theirs, and then $1,000 in repair parts over the next year, then for electric to compete with that market, they need to offer a replacement motor and battery for less than $1,000. Quit pretending that all the cars on the road were bought new. That simply isn't true. Put down the coolaid.

Other people might be more knowlegable but you presented the information well. The vertical integration / 5 year supply deal with Piedmont Lith was not covered enough in the Battery Day presentation ( its a big deal to have the supply sorted for the next 5 yrs ). I do think people in general would have been excited to see the design unveil for the new $25k car, but it makes sense that it didn't happen. Focus at the moment is on the Semi and Cybertruck, getting those going in the next year and then unveil the design for a hatchback for Europe and small car for China.

One thing I think about with the legacy auto manufacturers is that they aren't going to take EV's seriously (Ford, for example, with it's Mustang Mach E, 250 miles range and 0-60 time in 6 seconds), and then say "Look, Nobody wants an EV.", when nobody buys their short range, slow accelerating EV's. I won't consider an EV, unless it has a minimum 300 mile range (preferably 350-400, even better if its 500). That's why I'm a little concerned with how Ford's electric F-150 will be when it gets released.

I think Tesla has missed a trick here with this single radii cell pack. While the optimal circle packing fraction (area efficiency), in a square bounded space, is 78% (78% cells, 22% void), regardless of cell radii or hex vs square packing, this is for cells of equal radius. If the larger intracell voids are populated with small radii cells, this percentage can be increased. The voids between 4680's could accommodate 2170's, increasing the PACK energy density, though not "optimally". According to Wikipedia, there are apparently 9 "optimal" radius ratios for "compact" (all cells touching) binary radii packing schemes. See section on "Unequal Circles" in; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Circle_packing The highest BINARY RADII "compact" packing fraction is 91.1627478% for a radius ratio of 0.545151042. This would mean either a new 25mm partner for the new 46mm cell OR a tabless 2170 variant with a new 38.5mm cell. This is assuming that, structurally, now the cooling is axial and not an intra-cell ribbon, touching cell cases (i.e. compact packing) would be better. Of course, it's also possible that "compact packing" isn't the best overall engineering solution, considering other factors like cell-cell thermal/mechanical isolation. Maybe a little space filled with a matrix adhesive between them is useful, in which case maybe there is some "optimal" 2170+4650 packing scheme with a couple of millimeters between cells. Even though this would add manufacturing complexity (to perfect the manufacture of entirely new small tabless cells) if they went for the optimal binary radii packing they'd achieve 91% packing efficiency, which is a 17% (0.91/0.78) improvement over single radii density. A 17% PACK energy density improvement for TWO standard cell sizes doesn't seem something to sniff at! Perfecting the manufacture of these binary radii cells would be a one-time cost, the 17% pack efficiency improvement would be forever, and mathematically unbeatable.

I live in a rural community and to go anywhere I need to drive about 100 miles (minimum) in any direction. I am looking for a car for my family. Why would I go out and buy a new or used EV when there is so much talk about technology advances and range improvements? If I would by an EV today, in a couple of years all I would have is an 2-3 year old EV with old inefficient technology and low range and a lousy resale value. I think i will wait for this technology to mature. ICE dealer here I come!

Is there a cheaper or subsidized future plan for ICE cars being converted into Electric with out having to purchase a NEW car? I know there are luxury level startups like MomentMotors, but not everyone can spend $60K to have their $15K used Honda Civic converted, like Mr. Fusion for the Delorian.

Nice video Matt. I shared some of your same concerns and I felt wanting in one specific area. The primary concern is that if the battery becomes a structural component of the car, how is it ever replaced / repaired? And the one area with which I came away wanting was in a bottom line. I would have liked to see or hear what it means for future car purchases. Does it mean that a $38K Model 3 will be able to be sold for $30K should all of these improvements in battery technology come to fruition? Does it mean that a $38K SR+ will have a range of 350 miles? Those kinds of conclusions were missing from his presentation.

The battery day was a huge thank you from Tesla to its long holding shareholders, a "look ma' no hands" moment. As well, it was to educate us on how small was the hurdle described as "production hell", involving a mass production of Model 3. It brought much more then I expected. it's intricant value is yet to be confirmed but promises bright future for the company and great value for our shareholds.

Due to the silicium expantion and contraction the isolation materials normal cracks while charged and discharged is still worrying since it take a lot of time to test the cell thoroughly. Elon also stated that the we're running generation 4 battery and they weren't finished yet. Let's get the bear shot and slaughtered before we sell the skin. Anyway it was an impressive "show" with a lot of prospect.

Following Tesla's steps will be the wrong path, competitors doesn't need to follow, they need to do better. Elon is just scared of the competitors that are going to use solid state batteries, because they will have the lead.

I think everyone is failing to see the forest for the trees: I expect the global economy to be utterly trashed by 2024, & the global tantrum-pogrom to begin by 2028. Between now & then Russia, China, & Saudi Arabia should go on empire-building rampaging, leaving the self-destructed West disabled & limited, & many countries disappeared/subjugated. Tesla will be the greatest success in the west, but the west will be so much less significant... Tides turn, global tilt is real, & militarized... it's too late to prevent. Read Dambisa Moyo's "Winner Take All", for another view of the diff between strategy ( China ) vs the "management" of the west... or read "Blood & Oil" & contemplate how many countries will be canabalized by that force in the coming decade. whatever, nobody will consider it to be true, until it has already happened.

Thanks for the great summary. I only casually follow Tesla as I am not in the market for a new car right now. I like what they are doing but I did not watch this event. I like the way that you summed it up - that Tesla is doing for Solar, Batteries and EVs what Apple did for mobile computing.

Hi Matt, subscriber #229.000 over here. First of all, I've been watching your videos since a couple of months, and I must say, you have not just really good content, but incredibly well explained, alwways keeping it simple for good, even complex theoretical phenomena. Regarding this video, as a chemical engineer -by far not an expert in all the subjects of Battery Day, but well informed at some level of depth- I must say that I was blown away by how fast Tesla is acting and doing everything, specially scaling to production level they own research technologies, because I've seen how much a thechnology can take froma a TRL 1, or from the lab if you wish, to mass production. I've never been a "Fan" nor a "hater", rather indifferent of Elon Musk persona, but the way he, or his teams, are planning and acting is far beyond impressing. This vertical integration that Tesla is doing, is going to smash traditional car manufacturers in the face very bad if they don't act urgently fast and start doing innovation at a "tesla level of innovation".

you are way way off base on gas powered being on its death bed... Battery powered cars are and always will be terrible touring cars and the building of them makes the same enviromental footprint as gas if not worse.. .Gas is a better performer in every way over batteries.. Now are batteries a bad idea.. No. they are just a different approach on transportation... the real answer is Thorium powered cars... No one is really pushing it because no one can get rich off it. Musk is getting rich off batteries, The enviroment is NOT his agenda.. its power and money... lets be honest here and he cant make money off Thorium..

Matt , I’ve looked at very substantial number of YouTube videos. What I think every one has missed is Elon’s college’s comment , thermal has been eliminated as a design constraint. Think about all of hardware associated with controlling the battery temperature. I would like to know how the new battery pack is cool or heat as the weather varies. I worked on a lot of projects but never had a gigantic factor drop out off concern.

While I can honestly say that I’m a big fan of Elon musk and the work that Tesla is doing, you are dead wrong about the death of internal combustion engines. Yes the range and affordability will go along way towards getting more people into EV’s. However the main problem still remains. The problem of continual usage. There is currently no way for an electric car or truck to drive non stop from coast to coast. With a gas or diesel you can stop put fuel in and continue on your way. With ALL EV’s you must stop for an extended period of time to recharge. The other problems will probably get solved soon than that one. Such as decreased range with high payloads, and the fact that you MUST charge from a Tesla charger (if you want to charge at a fast rate). Until the electric cars are able to be operated free of complex infrastructure they will never replace I.C.E. Please don’t take this as me hating on EV. I’m actually very excited about what EV can offer, but don’t fool yourselves, there is still a lot of room out there that will need to be filled by vehicles that use fuel.

One of the big problems with large automakers is that they are beholden to their shareholders. They have also been hobbled by management that believes in the typical business management strategies which focus on the short term, at the detriment of long term sustainability and profitability. This type of management has destroyed a huge number of businesses. It is a good thing that Musk is as strong-willed as he is to keep this type of management from destroying Tesla and SpaceX

Mr. Musk has said that the Tesla company has established and will expand a recycling facility for old batteries. The old batteries are valuable even if they won't hold a charge because they are a more concentrated source of the required chemicals than can be obtained by mining.
