    These larger better, cheaper, last longer batteries, that recycle easier and could be for tesla only, but wouldn't it be great if they made a pack for ALL the different types of Prius too? Do you think it will happen?

    Your forgetting “Tesla Quality”! Maybe the tops of the batteries will blow off too ;)

    Toyota is always ahead of the game. Tesla sales now don’t mean much for the future.

    Oh really?!? Hopefully, they will be backward compatible, unlike Nintendo/Sony/Playstation games/systems.

    They have already branched out to homes. I don't see this as much of a stretch.

    There is only so much the public will accept regarding quality issues. VW outsold Tesla this month in one country.

    Did you see the tesla "batteries day" video? It is pretty awesome.

    The youtube of the video:

    there are highlight videos that are MUCH shorter if you search "Tesla battery day" on youtube.
