85 VW Cabriolet: Where to fit batteries? OR Which batteries?

823 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  remy_martian
If I go with Tesla battery modules (I think I need to use a Tesla drive unit in order to remove the clutch/manual) then I will need to get at least 14 of these (don't you love my mock-up :) ) into the cabriolet.

My questions are:

1. Is a Tesla Drive Unit the only way for me to remove stick/manual shift?
2. If not, what are some alternatives?
3. If yes, are Tesla batteries the best for this car/design?
4. OR would looking at LG Chem be a better option?
