Read this interesting article about a breakthrough for “Massless” energy storage.

It got me wondering, what are some of your thoughts on if/when this type of new battery tech would be used in the EV space? 3 years? 5 years? Would it's impact be huge on the resale value of today's vehicles?

Tesla will start using a better battery late this year. I'm still hoping solid state batteries will finally solve the scaling-up problem within the next 3 years.

Vehicle development cycle is generally about 3 years. Some updates can occur later but that's usually limited. That means technology that is already fully functional, affordable, and can be mass-produced today may hit new models in 3 years. There technologies are 5+ years out, depending on when they are fully functional, affordable, and can be mass-produced.

The newest technology generally also hits the high-end vehicles first and then gradually trickles down to the higher volume, lower cost vehicles.
