A very realistic idea would be to go modular for add on specific and complex features.
The function of pre-charge and main contactor handling is better handled by the motor controller by itself, don't bother.
If your concept of battery monitoring system is simple and straight forward, would be better.
It can be made more attractive with a large display connection on a VGA type of signal and better yet, touch sensitive control interface(USB)
Final customer choice of equipment, this monitors (7" and 8") are vast and very economic today days.
The small 4 line LCD modules are VERY difficult to read in a moving vehicle.

Just my 2 cents.
