I can't see Tesla sacrificing additional range for additional battery life, especially since future cells should last longer anyway.
The team believes it can build a battery pack for electric vehicles that can be fully charged inless than a minute.
The world loves to be deceived.

I'm tired of hearing about fast charging batteries when what we need are batteries with better energy density and lower costs. Fast charging might happen 1% of the time, if that, not really important if it takes 1 minute or 5 minutes, which is already possible.Other factors, such as the battery’s energy density and cycle life seem to remain unchanged.
Because there are tons of crazy people in this world...
Au contraire, if you can recharge a 150 mile pack in 3 minutes without significant negative impacts, you've got all of the benefits of battery swapping except much cheaper. Though the wiring for that would need to be able to handle ~2 kA at 400 V. Still cheaper than a battery swap.
Fast charging is also another way to reduce battery cost. It allows a 300 mile (or 230 mile) battery to support long (or longer) trips, avoiding the cost of a battery twice the size. To some degree, it's a balance with the optimum also depending on chemistry.
Buying an EV is one thing, being able to drive it beyond city limits another...
