Yep Phil Ness, but Tesla (Panasonic) are well ahead of the game on battery technology, which is one of the reason's why BMW and VAG etc have bought a number of Tesla cars to reverse engineer the battery technology used.
Keeping the latest 2170 cells tame, has been more of a challenge than the previous 18650 cells.
The Tesla Model 3 with it's 75kw ? battery pack, is a modern day marvel, giving a conservative 310 mile range.
8 year warranty on the battery pack to still give 80% capacity is not to shabby at all for this latest technology.
If I could get my firm to give me a car allowance instead of a leased company car, I would put my reservation in for a Tesla Model 3 in the blink of an eye.
Straight away I would save £1,200 per year in BIK tax, the firm would cover all charging costs, and in effect my 3000 mile annual trip to Frejus and back, would be cost free.
What's not to like for having a BEV as a company car driver.
