There are a few Aus based suppliers
Leon Ford at is a good supplier for batteries and some other parts.
I have heard from a few people that is not a reputable seller, they have a reputation or taking money and not delivering.

A Nissan Leaf battery pack would probably work well for you, Infact, the whole Nissan Leaf would probably work pretty well for you.
Perhaps buy an old Leaf (Around $10-14K) and use that as a complete donor into the Merc chassis. With a donor car, you'd get almost every single part you need for the conversion, then it'll just be fitting and adapting things, wiring, fabrication etc. The engineer will 'theoretically' like it better if you use OEM parts too.
