Crazy Highlights.

John Wayland's Gen-1 Honda Insight is being rebuilt for long range BEV. 350 Miles per charge at highway speeds of 55 to 70 MPH.

71.5 kwh battery rated for up to 715 kw of discharge power.
He is expecting to get about ~5 Miles per kwh over the 350 mile run.

He is considering weather to go with a 100 kw or 200 kw motor controller / Inverter and drive motor.

That's crazy ... but I look forward to reading more about it as the story unfolds.

I've been reading his blog posts as well and I'm very interested to see the outcomes of these new projects of his.
Good to see you post John. Can't wait for updates on this project and the upgrades to Blue Meanie :)
are dow kokam selling batteries to diyers?
No they aren't. They give these cells to John to generate publicity, in order to get OEM's interested in purchasing them for production auto applications.
Is that a legit source? This is the first I've heard of this.
The Wayland's Words blog hasn't been updated since October :(
The project has only ever been on his blog. He hasn't been active recently due to personal struggles:
