Sehr interessanter Podcast über Tesla’s Pläne mit der Batterietechnologie von Maxwell.
The CEO said that it’s going to be a “big deal” and that it could have a “very big impact” on their business: “It’s kind of a big deal. Maxwell has a bunch of technologies that if they are applied in the right way I think can have a very big impact.” Musk confirmed that Maxwell’s dry electrode technology is “one of the technologies” that could be a “big deal”. As we previously reported, Tesla already all but confirmed that it is going to make its own battery cells shortly after the acquisition of Maxwell last year. A more detailed plan is going to be announced at Tesla’s ‘Battery and Powertrain day’, which Musk now says should happen in “a few months.” During the podcast, Musk also commented on the approach to batteries from other automakers: “Most other car companies want to outsource battery technology. There’s the battery, module and cell. There are all outsourcing the cells, but some are even outsourcing the modules and the packs. They are not thinking about fundamental chemistry improvements.”
