Tesla's new 2170 battery cell

As it turns out, Tesla, and its battery partner Panasonic, started production of cells for qualification at the plant in December, but today, it confirmed the start of “mass production” of the new battery cell, which will enable several of Tesla’s new products, including the Model 3.
The new cell is called ‘2170’ because it’s 21mm by 70mm. It’s thicker and taller than the previous cell that Tesla developed with Panasonic, which was in an ‘18650’ cell format.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk has been boasting about the new cell over the past few month. He said that it’s the “highest energy density cell in the world and also the cheapest”.

in ten years they try to revolutionize the industry by inventing a 2375 battery while the germans stack some kind of a4-sheets together to make big battery-pouches with much higher energy density with sodium and solid state glass-electrolyte that does not degrade when being loaded at high speed.

Thankfully, the waste of these eternal batteries will never become a problem for the environement.
300 million registered cars in America. Now all run on batteries. (800ish pounds)
Now 300millionX800 pounds= 240,000(million pounds of waste batteries, every 6-9 years (Life of the battery, being my usual optimistic-self)

Good tech, yes;
Will it save the world? No

Why not build a smarter battery, like the solid state lithium-glass battery, rather than extend the present limited battery that requires fluid separator which allows the growth of dendrites and can explode when short circuited? Come on Tesla, show us what you can do. Do not just build bigger lithium ion batteries. Google Goodenough and Ms Braga, please.

I sincerely wish you would come clean and give credit to Mooch regarding his analysis of batteries. You stole his data, turned off commenting when you realized the backlash you were going to get, and I assume you're trying to ride this out. It's quite ironic that you ride boosted skateboards. To "boost" means to "steal." Perhaps not too ironic, as that is what you do.

Yes; but WHAT DOES TESLA DO WITH THEIR BATTERIES WHEN THEY ARE RECYCLED?? Currently they go to Kinsbursky then Toxico in Canada where they are smelted for cobalt value.. Then the toxic flurry is dumped in an "Environmental Landfill".. They MUST practice HYBRID RECYCLING to be environmentally friendly.. See here: https://youtu.be/InWSsghejdE

If you have improved the density why also increase the size? It would seem more useful if you kept the same form factor and just upped the density, since the 18650 is already so widespread.
