My understanding is the long range battery has 96 cells. Each cell has 46 batteries(21700) and yields a combined ~75kwh battery.
If true, the midrange (62kwh battery) should have approximately 80cells.
If removing cells from the ~75kwh long range battery drops weight by approximately 125lbs to equal the mid range battery (62kwh), why is the standard version only 59lbs lighter than the midrange? Would suggest they only removed ~8 cells from the battery.
This also seems to support the 240 mile range for standard plus versus the originally estimated 220. I think standard base is just a software limited version of 55kwh battery.
