Director of battery technologies at Tesla Motors give details a few significant essentials which show the way to the Roadster’s achievement. One of them was the taking up of laptop lithium ion batteries, and structuring safe and forceful energy storage out of them.
Tesla Battery Known:
The Tesla Roadster uses a battery called “18650,” originally designed for laptop computers. The car doesn’t use 10, or a hundred, but 6,831 of them, adequate to send out a 56 kWh power onto the Roadster’s electric motors and wheels. This power is sufficient to get you from 0 to 60 mph in about 3.5 seconds (depending on the car’s version).
Kelty also understood that they convene complexity in making an ultimate arrangement with different battery manufacturers, because they had reservations if something would take place it would demolish their image. But nothing awful did occur. On the contrary, Tesla succeeded building an electric vehicle that’s both pleasant to look at and powerful, with a self-sufficiency of 394 kilometers, dissimilar any of the contestant. Kelty articulates they didn’t desire to make compromises, even if it prices more.
“Now,” he says, “that our company is renowned, several battery manufacturers are present their products to us.” Tesla’s Roadster and the forthcoming ‘Model S’ will hold the similar battery. It has cooling and heating systems on-board, and the whole system has been designed so as if one of the batteries expires, the others aren’t affected. Only the driver is observant by a message sending him to the dealer to see why the battery had passed away and to substitute it.
Tesla Future Version:
The battery chef at Tesla point out that the future versions of the models they premeditated and produce will not feature batteries coming from only one producer. He anticipates cost plunge in the battery market and this will guarantee them a wider range of suppliers, as well the current Japan-based manufacturer.
“However, we will not anxiety to reveal the names of those battery dealers. When common customers buy notebook PCs, they do not care about the names of battery creator, do they? I consider that the same thing can be said to EVs,”
