    How Tesla getting 300 miles per charge and others don't. What is the main reason?

    Tesla uses a lithium battery cell that is more energy dense (but less power dense) than others have used, and because of their arrangement with Panasonic, have been able to build larger battery packs than competitors. So, Tesla can offer a 100 kWh battery car, while only the Chevy Bolt, which uses a battery from LG, has been able to come close.

    I believe the gap is narrowing now, though, and we should see large packs from others pretty soon. The soon-to-be-released Jaguar iPace, for example, will have a 90 kWh battery an the 2020 Fisker EMotion will have a 145 kWh pack (from LG).
