Tesla 2170 Battery Cell

Picture of the official Tesla 2170 battery cell taken at the Gigafactory grand opening by Jude Berger.

Dimensions are 21mm x 70mm. These will be used in the Model 3 initially and then in the Model S and X

The energy density is NOT 31% greater. The volume is 31% greater. The energy is 31% greater. The energy density is roughly the same as the traditional 18650 cells used in the Model S and X when using the same chemistry. With new chemistries the energy density will increase in small increments, but the size does not change the energy density. A big box full of 18650 cells would have the same energy and energy density as the same box filled with the 21 x70 cells.
 
Thanks for the info, helpful for us wanting to know more about the tech side of Tesla !
 
Thanks Trev for posting this !
