This is an article about EV startup Canoo and its latest battery presentation. According to the author, those packs consist of a certain number of 2170-format cylindrical cells—exact chemistry and supplier yet to be announced—packaged tightly together as part of a module.
As Canoo’s presentation had already hinted, that the modules would easily translate to the 4680 cylindrical cells that Tesla proposed.
Canoo and Tesla certainly aren’t the only automakers to discuss structural packs. Volkswagen, at its own “power day” earlier this year, outlined that it sees cell-to-pack and cell-to-car as part of its EV future. Although neither Canoo nor Tesla are delivering a structural pack at the moment, both companies could be among the first to embrace this seemingly inevitable evolution within EVs.
