So, by my understanding the Model S isn't currently using the new denser 2170 cells. Of course Tesla will pop those bad boys in the S eventually which it would be safe to assume this will give you an increase in range in all the Model S battery pack options.
Now that got me thinkng that the Model 3 could still come close to the 300mil range and the S still having more range over the 3 according the Elons tweet saying the S will have more range.
If the 3 gets the new 2170 I would bet the S would get them the same time and we would see the new range numbers on Model S configurater. Probably changing from low 300s to mid 300s.. making the model 3 300 range seem more likely.
