Tesla works on a new battery that will extend the autonomy of its vehicles

Named 4680, it will be six times more powerful than the current ones. Its production will begin at the end of 2021.

Elon Musk, founder and CEO of the electric car manufacturer Tesla, confirmed that the company is working on a new battery technology that will be six times more powerful than current ones and will increase the autonomy of vehicles by 16%.

Denominated 4680, will be produced at a facility near its Fremont (United States) assembly plant in late 2021. The new battery is larger than those currently used by Tesla and produced by Panasonic and other manufacturers.

TeslaDesigned to take better advantage of the thermal characteristics to increase the autonomy of the vehicles, it is one of the key elements to fulfill one of Musk's initial promises: the production of a vehicle truly accessible to the majority of consumers.

The businessman assured that "In three years, we are convinced that we can produce a $ 25.000 electric vehicle that is also fully autonomous."

Although Musk promised that the 3 it would be a vehicle of U.S. dollar 35.000, Tesla only held that price for a short time, and today, the manufacturer's cheapest vehicle is priced at an actual U.S. dollar 50.000, 43% more than initially announced.
