I would suggest getting some Volt modules - they are cheaper than Tesla and seem to be very robust
They come in effectively 24v and 48v modules - complete volt batteries seem to go for around $1800 and have seven of the 48 volt modules and two of the 24 volt modules
The 48v units are 2 kWh and the 24v units are 1 kWh

Your motor will love about 150 volts - but your controller may be voltage limited

I would suggest getting a Volt battery and arranging it as two batteries in parallel to drop the voltage down to about 150 volts

If you use two of the 48v and one of the 24v in each string you will have 10 kWh - and three 48 volt modules left to use on an electric lawn mower or something

This is my setup three 48v and one 24v (twice) - but I have them in series - I run from 295v to 340v
