It would be cool to see batteries adopt some sort of modular formfactor where the chemistry and quantity can change, but it all slots into standard "bays", but that's far off, if ever. Just look how they can't standardize on common parts like steering wheels, brakes, etc, etc.
10x faster? The 3 right now can do 500mph at lower SOCs.

I won't complain if we ever get to 5,000mph, but at 3.5 minutes for 300 miles of range, that's barely enough for a quick #1, assuming I don't wash my hands.
