If the shorter range batteries were LFPs and the long range battery is NMC then the weights could be the same. LFP batteries only have half the energy density as NMCs but they are much cheaper and have longer cycle lives.
BTW I’m assuming that the battery sizes quoted are usable storage, not true size, because they are quoting ranges that are 10X the pack size. The real sizes would have to be at least 10% bigger.
