WEBFI-TECH-BREAKING! Tesla Adds 4680 Battery Reference To Model Y Manual

Tesla Model Y gets a new 4680 battery. Hours ago Tesla added 4680 structural battery pack reference to Model Y owner’s manual as production is imminent.

Tesla has updated the US version of the Model Y owner’s manual and it includes a reference to the new 4680structural battery pack. The structural battery pack is expected to be the biggest difference in the Model Y to be produced at Gigafactory Texas versus the current version from Fremont factory.

Tom Klun/Twitter found that in the updated Owner’s Manual, Tesla uses explanations and a drawing of Model Y with a new battery pack design. In particular, he found an illustration of the car with a structural battery pack and an indication of lift points, as well as explanations for it.


Tesla 4680 battery production starts. Tesla 4680 structural battery update. Model Y with Tesla 4680 battery. Giga Texas production start.

    Elon will be at giga Berlin Sunday.The Design Studio has upgraded the German cuonsumers accounts to March delivery, with changes in battery pack size from 77kwh to 82 kwh thus increasing the mileage to 514km in the model Y performance and 565km on the LR model depending on wheel size The only color choice will be black and white only till the factory production expands.

    Germany got their asses handed to them by Texas and Shanghai.

    For sure they are being made, is my guess. Because the Semi is also seen rolling out of the Fremont factory. This one is know for it's 4680 battery design. I don't think they make test models with other battery form. They will make and test the 15 Pepsi trucks like the normal ones… They will ramp up than 4680 cell come quicker of the new lines. These lines comes from Tesla Canada and are tested and all most plug and play for production when arriving in Texas and Berlin. Shanghai will receive 4680 machines later, when building is ready. In Giga Texas they look almost run ready, in Fremont we do not know, but will be Nr.1 in delivery of 4680 I think. Pepsi Semi's could be the prove of production 4680… Very soon we will see 4680 cells made in Texas, Berlin and Fremont. Later also Shanghai… But for now Shanghai will use CatL LFP and BYD Blade LFP. In my view perhaps even a better choice, If you look at durability and ease of use and cost price. Cybertruck will follow as soon as 4680 cell manufactoring is on high/full speed. I think this year Q3 startup Cybertruck production Giga Texas. Now Semi testing periode is there…. And next quarter I think first Semi production starts if test go well and assembly lines are ready.

    4680 does not become part of the vehicle body – it becomes part of its structure or chassis.

    When giga Berlin opens the German auto companies are going to see how far in the dust they are behind…. Crazy they thought this would never happen

    My MYP is projected for Feb 7 to March 7. I emailed my Tesla rep the other day and told her if my VIN comes in and it’s not a TX car, please place my order back in hold. I also told her I was willing to pick it up at Austin. Hopefully that seals the deal. But I for sure didn’t wait until November to order, just to get a Fremont 2170 car with a piece meal front chassis. The cost went up from $58990 to $62990, while I waited. That’s only ok, if I get what I’ve been waiting for.

    The 4680 model Y should be better and cost less, so theortically, Yesla would have to undercut his price for the model Y from Freemont to make sens.

  • Jac Flasche on January 14, 2022

    Now if they could only get those 25k model Ts rolling off, that will be the real game over.

  • Dean McManis on January 14, 2022

    The 4680 Batteries will be a game changer for Tesla. I think that the Model 3 and Model Y with the 2170 batteries are still great, but if I had a Model Y on order I would have definitely waited (and spent more) for the Gen II model with 4680 batteries, the structural case, and the cast frames. I wonder how much time it will take to update the Model 3 with those innovations? And will the Model S and X be refitted soon as well?
