Is there any reason to do that apart from academic interest? I find
the less dials and complexity the better, in a car meant for commuting
(which I assume a Neon is).

Also, IIRC the synkromotive controller has a data output and comes
with PC software which can display any parameters you want in a
graphical format, including the motor current. That might be an
option if he likes looking at dials!

You didn't mention what you are using for an energy meter, which is
the only important instrumentation you need for LiIon. That may well
come with battery volt and amp metering "for free" anyway.
