That was a terrible video and not worth watching.

Also batteries are heavy and fuel+tanks are lighter. But he neglected to mention the car engines are very heavy and electric motors are much lighter.

I flip flop between Musk being a Genius (The first time I saw the video of his spaceX rocket landing vertically I was awe struck, I shared it with everyone who would let me) a charlatan (hyperloop/car sled/monorail thing) or a mentaller (The Thai cave incident).
However, that video basically says that batteries have crap power to weight ratio compared to an ICE. He never proves that Tesla batteries are nonsense compared to other batteries though.

At the end he complains about click bait but he's no better himself

His biggest mistake was to compare the weight of an EV battery with an empty or full fuel tank, he will understand things better if he compares an EV battery with the weight of his car engine + transmission + fuel tank

But its not all bad, he's on the right track when it comes to Hydrogen

A new battery technology that will suck less than Tesla's current batteries.
Quote:
Tesla has announced the acquisition of Maxwell Technologies ($MXWL), a San Diego-based battery technology company for $218M, in an all stock deal. Maxwell specializes in ultracapacitors & has recently validated its breakthrough Dry Battery Electrode technology. Will Tesla leverage Maxwell's IP to bring longer range, more efficient BEVs to market?
