Then Tesla Motors can use these longer cells to manufacture a battery pack that is double as thick/high as the current battery pack (10cm / 4inch). This new battery pack will have the capacity of at least 170 kWh. And it will be a bit heavier of course, but it does not really have to be double the weight, due to development in battery technology. But it will result in a longer range of the EV in which this new battery pack will be used. Is this idea feasible? Your thoughts please.
