For a car, the BMS just monitors the cells and doesn't carry any power itself.
The electric-bike style BMSs are able to interrupt the power, but that doesn't work for a car since you might pull 200 amps.
So the BMS in a car needs to be able to alert you if cells go too high or too low, so that you don't overcharge or overdischarge any cells.

Orion BMS and Dilithium BMS are both well regarded and have the features you need. Thunderstruck is probably more affordable.
