Here's how I think battery size will play out in the coming three years:
1. Model X will have an 85 kWh base battery, optional 100+ kWh. This will allow it to achieve range goals similar to the Model S.
2. Model E will have a 60 kWh battery, optional 85 kWh.
3. Model S base will become 85 kWh, with an optional 100+ battery.
Tesla intends a 200 mile range goal on the base Model E. 55 kWh would do it, I think they'll perk it up to a 60 since price will start to fall with upcoming honkafactory.
