Powered by LIthium: Tesla Model X revealed at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show

"The new Tesla Model X will be Tesla's third car. Think of it as an AWD 7 passenger Crossover that also happens to be an electric car. The Tesla Model S features some unique design elements like the Falcon Doors (no not gull-winged) and the Frunk. If you don't know what a frunk is just watch this video from the 2013 Detroit Auto Show to check out the newest Tesla vehicle. Just like the Tesla Model S the Model X also features a flat floor, a 17 inch screen and of course thousands of batteries instead of a fuel tank. Check out this exclusive TFLcar car video as we get up close and personal with the Tesla Model X."

LCO batteries with LiCoO2 chemistry are the most aggressive choice for the battery, when Cobalt has the risk of being easily oxidised with the huge amount of energy released. We will be very surprised if it is the case with Boeing 787 Dreamliner - automakers started to move away from this chemistry long time ago."
