These tabless batteries will offer 16% more range

Tesla is calling these batteries the 4860 cells and they will be five times more efficient and six times more powerful. They are also said to increase the range of Tesla cars by up to 16 per cent. 

As per Musk, the breakthrough in relation to batteries happened by removing the tab which is the part of the battery that establishes the connection between the battery and the car. These cells are larger than current cells that Tesla uses which are called 2170 cells.
