Anyone know how much the battery pack for an 85 weighs vs. the one for a 60?
How about here: http://www.teslamotors.com/forum/forums/whmile-difference-between-60kwh-...
Zero. Dead cells are used to keep the weight distribution stable.
what about source Brian?
AFAIK the dead cells-theory is not confirmed.
Some sources say different:http://www.teslamotors.com/forum/forums/anyone-have-their-60kwh-weighed
thx, chrisdl, 4464 lbs for 60 kWh seems legit. However I've expected even lower number, but still better than nothing :-)
I bought my 60 mainly for the weight savings, which leads to a slightly peppier drive. I can confirm that is the case, driving back to back a P85+ loaner and my car on the same roads. Even though the P+ has higher limits, the weight transfer is more noticeable in the P+.
I don't regret my decision to go for the lightest sedan on offer from Tesla thus far.
