I would suggest Chevy Volt cells
I'm severely abusing mine and drawing 1200 amps motor current

My peak battery current is over 800 amps - my car is about 800Kg all in but it's road legal and actually much heavier than it could be

I'm using 14kWh from a volt pack - the batteries weigh less than 140kg - I'm running from 300v to 340v - you would need another couple of modules to get up to 400v

The Volt has a fairly small pack - 16kWh as it is a hybrid so it works that pack a bit harder - and the Chevy engineers appear to have compensated by making it quite robust

And they are cheap!
