Yeah, definitely. Remember the batts we have are 6v, so those 4 in the front represent only 24v of our 48v goal. So we'll be putting 4 in the hatchback, or under the rear seat if there's enough room - we're thinking of making a batt box that extends down into the space that the gas tank will be vacating. Probably not enough room though.
