I understood that there is a shotgun seat.

Perhaps Tesla will be as evolutionary as Arcimoto. They have gone to the pouch batteries (same as Zero motorcycle) instead of 18650 cells. I listened to Mark Frohnmayer explain that with cylindrical, spiral-wound cells the inner coils are subject to mechanical stress. Even prismatic cells might not be as good as pouches in that regard. Too much demand on the Gigafactory as it is.
The difference between science and screwin' around, is writing it down.
