In a bid to be the largest electric vehicle maker in the world, the American automotive giant Tesla has revealed that it’s considering adopting an 800-volt architecture for its upcoming vehicles – the Cybertruck and the Tesla Semi.

Porsche and Lucid Motors, who are Tesla’s rivals, have adopted the 800-volt architecture and 900-volt architecture for their cars and Air sedan.

However, the EV giant is considering adopting an 800-volt architecture, which would bring few benefits at a high cost for its upcoming bigger vehicles. Although, Tesla SVP of Powertrain and Energy Engineering Andrew Baglino noted that the application doesn’t make sense for vehicles like the Model 3 and Model Y.

Previously, Tesla’s CEO, Elon Musk, stated that switching to 800 volts would cost the company about $100 but that the cars’ charging infrastructure and the complete vehicle system would have to be altered.

However, Baglino went on to say that for the 800 volts, there are certain wins and losses for smaller platform vehicles like (the Model) 3 and Y. Not everything has improved. As a result, the company had a look at that platform, and while it’s true that customers can switch to a greater voltage, there’s nothing on that platform that encourages them to do so.

He highlighted that an 800-volt architecture has certain valid benefits but that they are primarily for larger vehicles. The architecture, according to Baglino, makes sense for electric automobiles that require more torque or higher charging power.

Going to a higher voltage saves a little more on semiconductors and actual conductors. As a result, we take that into account for Semi and Cybertruck. “However, the gain is questionably tiny for the (Model) 3/Y platform, where we’ve got everything operating,” Baglino remarked.

On the other hand, Tesla’s work on 800-volt architecture is unlikely to garner much attention, given the company’s concentration on ramping up its operations in the wake of the Model 3 and Model Y.
