Most people say Tesla is ahead in battery design. Why do you say the 2170 may not be superior?Bolt and Leaf (and probably some others) run on flat packs from LG Chem that technologically and spec-wise are way superior than 18650 cells in older Teslas, and probably 2170 in newer ones too. I would expect they hold significantly better even beyond buffer capacity.
Tesla's 18650 modules are rated for 2C continuous, 3C peak; LG packs are 10C / 20C respectively. This pretty much says it all. BTW, practically it means that at WOT all Teslas overload the battery (4..6C), also explains why Launch mode has a counter. Charging at currents >1C also accelerates degradation for lower spec cells, and it has been officially confirmed by Tesla that their batteries are affected by frequent supercharging.Most people say Tesla is ahead in battery design.

Interesting read, Thanks
