Analyst: Base Tesla Model 3 To Get 65 kWh Battery, 225 Miles Of Range
Sam Jaffe, an analyst at Cairn Energy Research Advisors, has just chimed in on battery capacity and range figures that he expects Tesla to announce for the base Model 3 tonight at the reveal.
According to Jaffe, the base Model 3 will come with a 65-kWh battery pack that provides approximately 225 miles of range per charge.
We can’t confirm these figures right now, but they do seem in line with expectations and Jaffe has often been right in “predicting” Tesla-related details in the past.
Jaffe added that he believes the individual cells in the Model 3 will have ~35% more energy than each cell found in the Model S and Model X.
Tonight’s Model 3 reveal should lock in some details, but we don’t expect all questions to be answered just yet.
