Lithium-ion Battery Question

Electric vehicles often have hundreds, if not thousands of Lithium-ion cells that make up their battery. The size seems to be CR123 or similar. Why aren't lithium-ion cells made in larger sizes? For example, a lead acid battery can be found in very large sizes, but you never see a lithium-ion battery with those dimensions.

Could a vehicle battery pack be constructed with the use of fewer, but larger cells?
