Tesla recently unveiled new battery tech that will help its vehicles go further while costing less. The automaker said it will be building these next-generation batteries itself. It also revealed Tesla’s Model S Plaid, which CEO Elon Musk said would be “the fastest production vehicle ever.” Input news editor Craig Wilson stops by the show to discuss.
And later: Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos recently became the first person worth $200 billion.
