That's a great price, a Prius battery from Toyota costs around half as much and is only 1.3kwh. Super plug-in Prius, anyone?

They still do quite well for what they are, they're warrantied for 5 years/60k miles to still have 70% capacity. That works out to about 750 80 mile charges. Not too bad. I bet short trips and a moderate climate would allow it to last at least 100k miles.
