What is the battery capacity of the Tesla Model S Plaid?
The Tesla Model S Plaid's battery packs are made up of 444 Panasonic NCR18650B cells, resulting in five modules.
The nominal pack energy is 95 kWh, and the pack is made up of 7,920 individual cells.
These cells are arranged in a specific configuration that includes thermal management to keep the battery cool while in use.
According to expert Sandy Munro, the Tesla Model S Plaid could travel up to 300 miles (482 kilometres) on the Next Energy cycle with a single charge.
This corresponds to 95 kW and 134 Wh per kilometre, resulting in an EV efficiency of 134 Wh/km.
Because of this high level of efficiency, a Tesla Model S Plaid can travel further on a single charge than other Teslas and electric vehicles on the market today.
The Tesla Plaid pack employs a nickel-based battery made up of 7920 18650 cells organised into five modules.
