PCRFY) manufactured “2170” batteries that are used in Model 3 is nearly 260 Wh/kg, so should Tesla achieve the 400 Wh/kg density, it would have made a 50% jump and be able to obtain a significantly longer driving range, Reuters reported.” data-reactid=”29″ type=”text”>The energy density of the Panasonic Corporation (OTC: PCRFY) manufactured “2170” batteries that are used in Model 3 is nearly 260 Wh/kg, so should Tesla achieve the 400 Wh/kg density, it would have made a 50% jump and be able to obtain a significantly longer driving range, Reuters reported.

Panasonic earlier said it has plans to increase the energy density of 2170 batteries to 20% in five years, as per Reuters.

Tesla battery supplier Contemporary Amperex Technology Co. Ltd, or CATL’s, chairman Zeng Yuqun said in June that it is ready to make batteries that will last nearly 16 years and 1.24 million miles.
