Early this morning, Tesla announced through its official social platform that it had produced its one millionth 4680 battery in January.This means that the battery of this new model is not far from being loaded and delivered. Musk said on a conference call that the 4680 battery will be the first to be used in the Model Y model.
Digitimes reports that Tesla is expected to deliver the first 4680-battery-equipped cars by the end of the quarterelectric car.
It is reported that Tesla will officially announce 4680 cells in September 2021.It is claimed that the energy of the single unit is increased by 5 times, the cruising range of the whole vehicle is increased by 16%, the power is increased by 6 times compared with the battery with tabs, and the power output is increased by 6 times.
This “revolutionary” battery has aroused heated discussions in the industry as soon as it was unveiled. It can not only increase the cruising range by 16%, but also save 86% of the cost.This will make Tesla’s new cars more affordable, and everyone has been looking forward to the launch of 4680-cell models.

At the same time, the 4680 battery also uses laser electrodeless ear technology to remove the main heating components of the battery, reducing the internal resistance, and the thermal stability and controllability of the battery is higher.
