Hi All,

I am bit puzzled and confused about my Electric van,

I recently bought a 2013 Ford connect Electric van with an "advertised" energy capacity of 28KWh,
I am just reading a leaflet about the vehicle detailing the battery configuration as follow and I quote

" The high voltage battery pack consists of two strings of 8 battery modules in parallel.
Each module is comprised of 12 lithium ion, 4V batteries in series.
The total voltage of the battery pack is 384VDC when fully charged,
290VDC when discharged (345.0 VDC nominal)"
Assuming they are using 18650 with highest energy of 5AH that work out to less than 4KWh! ... where is the 28KWh come from?
The van drive beautifully with a good range for the age and weight ...
Unfortunately - the co that developed the van is now out of business (Azure Dynamics) so I am left having to ask good people like yourselves for help,

Many thanks
