We Estimate Cost Savings for Tesla’s New Battery Line

Read The Full Article On: Insideevs

We estimate the cost savings for Tesla’s new battery line at approximately 20%. The bulk of this cost reduction is due to an increased line speed (production rate) facilitated by Maxwell’s new solvent-free dry electrode manufacturing process.

Our estimate is for finished battery packs — not just cells — and it includes other secondary benefits derived from no “middle-man” markup (Panasonic), integrating pack and cell production, using the Hibar custom high-speed battery manufacturing equipment (such as its high-speed electrolyte filling equipment), higher energy density from increased electrode coating thickness, and possible reductions in formation cycling and charge retention testing.
