Problem is that we are at a pretty low level of specifics (core material/switching frequency/number of turns/number of strands/etc, and there isn't much useful in that article.

If they are using one large boost converter per cell, we can't really find room to do that on a car with 80 cells let alone cost effectively. at 3.2v per cell, to make the target 36kw the boost converters would need to supply 11250 amps. It is designed for stationary use. Any ideas on the costs per cell?
