Matt, take a look at the trucks at http://balqon.com - I've talked a bunch with their VP of R&D and he tells me their biggest truck has a 250 kilowatt-hour battery pack.

That's interesting. A heavy, inneficient van can travel 90 miles on a 99KWH pack. A state of the art car like a tesla would travel over 450 miles on that energy...

By the way, A chinese bus has 900kwh:

400 km of range...

And check these cells:

7000 Ah... each cell. A 360V system would contain 2500kwh
