With an interesting twist on the cooling scheme …
That’s what it sounds like based on a previous Teslarati article:
“Rivian’s battery module is made up of the same sized battery cells that Tesla uses in the Model 3, commonly referred to as 2170, but the physical configuration of the cells differs quite a bit. Though the module is significantly thicker than Tesla’s, with two cells stacked on top of each other, it’s more energy dense by volume and weight. Separating the two levels of cells is Rivian’s cooling systems.”
Hmm…sounds like Tesla’s Semi and Roadster battery packs.

Tesla hasn’t talked a lot about stacking batteries but it is an unmistakable conclusion based on the information we have on the Tesla semi truck. There’s no way to squeeze that many kWh’s into the semi without stacking them and it looks like Rivian is doing the same thing.
