The well-known US car expert Sandy Munro is enthusiastic about the new battery cells that the car manufacturer Tesla presented during its “Battery Day”. That means something, because Munro is considered a tough Tesla critic.

After Tesla CEO Elon Musk had spent a lot of time getting the public excited about Tesla’s long-awaited “Battery Day”, the native South African dampened expectations a little before the go-ahead. “What we are announcing will not go into serious mass production until 2022,” wrote Musk in a tweet on the short message platform Twitter.

Nevertheless, critics, fans and the media alike expected at least one innovation that would turn the world of electric mobility upside down. Probably the hottest rumor was the million-mile solid-state battery.

At the annual Battery Day, which took place in a drive-in cinema together with the shareholders’ meeting due to Corona, Elon Musk yesterday gave an outlook on the future of battery technology at Tesla. With various measures …

After the event, many voices on social media were disappointed. There was no world-changing news at Battery Day – at least not supposedly. Tesla had ‘only’ introduced a new battery size with a new interior and made the promise to reduce battery prices by half.

But the innovations, which are almost spurned by the interested public, seem to meet with great interest, at least among experts. Now that the German battery expert Maximilian Fichtner has already given the assessment that Tesla’s new battery actually represents a quantum leap in technology, US automobile expert Sandy Munro joins the ranks of enthusiastic observers.

This is all the more astonishing since Munro is considered one of Tesla’s harshest critics. But now, a few days after Battery Day, the expert gave the YouTube channel “E for Electric” a video interview in which he was very positive about the new, larger and strap-free Tesla battery.

“The 2170 [Teslas bisherige Batterie, Anm. d. Red.] is a nice battery, I like it, it’s the best there is, but I didn’t like the way it handles heat. I wasn’t happy with the amount of glue it took to hold this thing in place, “Munro begins. Then he picks up a model of the new, larger battery.” But this is the way to go , these are the right dimensions. “

The aim is not only to make the battery much cheaper, but also to offer “enormous improvements in terms of range, performance and, above all, weight”, according to Munro. The car expert expects the new cells to save around 50 percent in weight. Munro is certain that this will turn everything upside down, wondering what kind of miracle the other observers may have been hoping for instead. “Musk will not pull a rabbit out of his ass during the event, what did you expect?” Asks the expert polemically.

For Munro, one of his predictions is now coming true: “I made a prediction: The ice age will end in 2030. Now two things have happened: This here [auf das Modell der neuen Batterie zeigend, Anm. d. Red.] and California, where combustion engines will no longer be sold from 2035. “

Munro is also enthusiastic about another topic that goes beyond the price and dimensions of the batteries. Tesla wants to install the new batteries in its vehicles without their own battery housing. Instead, the bottom of the chassis, which is manufactured using the die-cast aluminum process, is intended to act as a battery housing itself. The construction should be so stable that it would also be suitable as a vehicle floor for a convertible, said Musk during the presentation.

The batteries are glued directly next to each other and the remaining spaces should be filled with epoxy resin. “It’s going to be a giant brick,” Munro explains. You then no longer have to worry that a foreign body could break through the battery in an accident. According to Munro, the construction could even withstand a “crash with a train”. The vehicle occupants would “certainly have a bad afternoon,” the bikes may say goodbye, but the battery pack will still be intact.
