That might be a good choice if you wanted to spend the money on Lithium batteries, but filling a little light car like that with lead acid batteries would be pointless and not many people want to do a budget build then put lithium batteries, unless of course they do the math and see that in the long term lithium is cheaper then buying a new set of lead acid batteries every 3-5 years.
