Specifications #

The car will use two battery packs from BMW PHEV cars. Each pack has an official capacity of 9.135 kWh, giving the car an energy storage capacity of around 18 kWh in total.

The nominal voltage of the pack is 351.4v.

Each pack is made up of 6 modules and each module contains 16 cells - making 96 cells total in each pack.

Each pack (modules only) weighs around 75kg each.

I’m reusing most of the OEM BMS system. See the BMS section for more details.

One pack will go in the engine bay and the other pack will go in the boot where the fuel tank used to be.
