Confirmed: Tesla Model 3 (2021) features 82 kWh high capacity battery



The updated version of the 2021 Tesla Model 3 received, among other innovations, an increased capacity battery of 82 kWh – a corresponding improvement was provided by new, more energy-intensive cells manufactured by Panasonic. It is important to stipulate that these are still elements of the 2170 form factor, and not the new 4680.

Initially, it was assumed that it was possible to achieve greater autonomy in the Tesla Model 3 2021 without increasing battery capacity, but thanks to improvements in the transmission and other related optimizations. But we now know that the Tesla Model 3 2021 is using new batteries for the US and European market. Confirmation was found by an attentive client in the accompanying documentation and published on Reddit a photo of the corresponding page with a mention of the battery capacity. As the user explained, Tesla sends documents to European customers prior to the actual delivery of the car to speed up the clearance process.

Recall that the new Model 3 in the Long Range Dual Motor version is capable of covering up to 568 km on a single battery charge (according to the American EPA measuring cycle).

In September, Panasonic announced additional investments to expand the production capacity of its Tesla Gigafactory 1 electric vehicle battery plant in Nevada. As a reminder, the batteries produced at Gigafactory 1 are installed in Model 3 and Model Y for the US market. A few months earlier, the Japanese giant announced its intention to increase the specific energy density of battery cells for Tesla by 20% in five years and release a cell with zero cobalt content (the most expensive component in modern electric vehicle batteries) in the next two to three years. Panasonic also announced last week that new battery packs produced at Gigafactory 1 for Tesla’s electric vehicles support faster charging. And this is another testament to the slow but steady evolution of battery technology.
