I am still thinking through the battery solution for my 1985 westfalia conversion.

I would like my range to be around 200miles for camping trips and whatnot.

I’ve done some math and the numbers I’ve come up with are as follows:

600wh/m vehicle power usage

132v ac motor (hyper 9)

120kw needed for range

Which comes out to 909ah

Multiply by 1.32 to account for peukerts etc to get 1199.9 ah

Convert to kwh and we get 158.4 kwh

so. My question is, how feasible is it to build a 132v 159ish kwh pack with commercially available modules vs building my own?

I am under the impression that parallel modules add to wh and series adds to voltage. If that is the case and I’m not missing anything, that means with the lg chem cells at 232ah and 22.8v I would need something like 6s5p.

Does this sound right? Is there something simpler I am missing? Any help / number checking would be appreciated.

Thanks!
