I can't seem to find in what vehicles and years those batteries were used... I can only find them at EV West, but I'd like to source them a couple of places, maybe even find the whole pack. Anybody know if placed that have them and ship them to Arizona?

Thanks in advance for responses.

I believe that only the second generation of Smart ForTwo Electric Drive (ED), 2008-2011, used the Tesla battery. There were about 2000 of them built. This generation is identified as the "W451" series.

There have been four generations of electric Smart ForTwo, but the others used different batteries. There have been other non-Tesla vehicles which have had batteries supplied by Tesla (usually along with the rest of the powertrain), but probably with different modules from the Smart; these include the Mercedes B250e (2014-2017) and Toyota RAV4 (2013-2014).

In the Smart ForTwo ED, there are six of these modules, placed side-by-side and wired in series.
