Now that battery costs per kWh are heading down towards $100, how much extra do you think we should pay for a 70kWh M3 versus a 60kWh version (assuming these are options of course)?
Working on a pessimistic $150 per kWh as a current cost and allowing a 50% profit margin, I'd be expecting to pay $3,000 extra to add an extra 10kWh. But the Model S costs about £12,000 more for a 90D versus a 75D in the UK (probably about the same in dollars after taxes and tariffs) so that seems twice as expensive I'd have thought.
How much extra would you be willing to pay for extra capacity?
