GM's new soft-pack battery is supposed to be cheaper than Tesla, with a longer range.

2.5% more range, it does not say how much cheaper, just that traditionally polymer shells were more expensive, but up to 40% lighter. Wikipedia says a Tesla battery pack is 1,200 pounds.

480 pounds is a lot of weight savings, only 12% of the weight of a Model 3, but 12% weight savings in a vehicle is awesome. https://www.popularmechanics.com/sci...hicle-battery/

You can get 2.5% more range with any of a dozen cheap tricks.

I don't think this sentence makes sense:

Quote:
The soft pack exterior is less conductive, meaning the battery holds less self-damaging heat.

This is what you get when people with English degrees talk to engineers and try to write a paragraph about it.
