The Tesla Model Y with the new 4680 battery pack has been delivered to users one after another, so how does it perform? Recently, an overseas owner conducted a real-world test. It said that when the vehicle shows the remaining power to zero and continued to drive 3 miles (about 4.8 km), and seems to have no impact on the acceleration, it was connected to the power at 12:25 when the table shows the remaining range of 0 km, to 1:17 am cut off the power when the vehicle remaining range of 270 miles (about 434 km), 52 minutes from 0 to 97%, he is satisfied with such a charging speed He was satisfied with the charging speed.
In addition, it also mentioned that the charging power of this Model Y jumped to 250 kilowatts immediately after it was powered on, unlike the previous Tesla models.
It is understood that the 4680 cell is a new type of battery officially announced by Tesla last year, claiming a 5-fold increase in single-unit energy, a 16% increase in overall vehicle range, and a 6-fold increase in power compared to polar-ear batteries, and a 6-fold increase in power output.
Compared to the 21700 battery previously carried by Tesla, it has a wider diameter and higher height, consists of only 950 cells and has an energy density of about 300Wh/kg.
Not only that, but in terms of innovative manufacturing and assembly, Musk says the 4680 battery saves a total of about 86%, while reducing costs by 69% per kWh.
An overseas car company also disassembled a Tesla Model Y assembled with a 4680 battery pack. In addition to the battery vehicle integration technology, the company said the entire battery structure pack of Model Y is very light, including the floor, seat, center console, weighing only 1200 pounds (about 544 kg).
I have to say, 4680 compared to the previous battery, really progress quite a lot, look forward to domestic Tesla can also use the new battery as soon as possible.
