    Inferring something without any quote or even context. Ugh. You know quite well the Chinese supply will be for the Chinese market. You also know "small" is so vague, it only serves to confuse. Reality is, there will be multiple sources for cells and a few more stacks is still well under "larger" sizes.

    Consider that 60'ish km target for this market. Isn't that the ideal balance of cost/capacity for very high-volume potential ?

    the only way to hit 60 would be a more efficient battery, or a redesigned prius. either (or both) are possible, but cost will be the driving force

    Next-Gen is defined as being a redesign.
