Do you want your model S to have extra range? Say 350+ miles in total?
All it needs is an exchange of patent licenses between Tesla and Volvo and a retrofit of some body panels.
The mountains have labored, and brought forth a mouse.
130 km range? Yawn.
It's interesting how many people read of some laboratory proof-of-concept or patent, then assume it's mass production ready and want to know what Tesla doesn't immediately incorporate it into their vehicles...
They say nothing about price. Carbon Fiber is very expensive, even before you try and embed nano batteries.
I think it's an interesting technology but I'd like to see how market ready it is and to hear about the safety aspect as well.
Just some retrofitting of body panels? Are you serious? :-D
@Jolinar: am I ever serious? ;D
I hear ORNL, funded by the Department of Energy, have discovered a battery with an energy density equivalent to hold 4 times the amount of KWh of the most advance lithium battery to date. It's less flammable because it's solid instead of liquid translating to more safety. The battery is also less expensive to produce because its made of sulfur. They call it lithium polysulfidophospate. Can't wait for this to go mass market. This would be a good buy for Tesla to invest in if it ever comes in fruition. I can see it now, a Tesla Model S that has a range of 1200 miles before it's next charge. By by to the ICE and kiss my behind oil corporations.
