CNBC car industry analyst this morning said Tesla is years ahead in their battery technology and in mind-set of continuous improvement that others car makers will be unable to catch up for sometime.

Tesla must be putting a tight lid on Panasonic to keep their battery technology exclusive and proprietary to Tesla.

Toyota and Panasonic have a joint EV battery venture, and have read Toyota is heavily investing R&D into solid state battery development.

Never mind the wear and tear of the engine -- nor the wasted gas.

It's the killer carbon monoxide poisoning.

Is there a short version of the "update"?

And I really don't understand the thread link about idling a V10?

Years ahead on technology? Hardly.

They do have a jump on product availability.

the race to silicone based energy storage is where it will get interesting. If someone can figure out how to get around the current known physics, that will be the game changer.

I'll be interested if you can put out your own technical analysis in side-by-side comparison of Tesla and "other advanced" battery tech/car manufacturers to lend credibility to you views.

I'm not an engineer, my boy who worked for Tesla is, and I'm too far for him to ask whether the analyst findings is accurate.

The Tesla semi discussed here validates analyst view since with the jump in range from initial 300 to now 600 miles.
