So 22 of those puppies would get you to your voltage and also give you 880Ah's for a weight of 73 pounds. Of course this would run you about $1800 total and you would still need the BMS. I don't know the stats for your setup but I would bet that would be 20-40 miles of all electric range at city speeds.

I could run the numbers through a spread sheet for you if you want. I would need to know Cd, Frontal Area, vehicle weight, estimate of rolling resistance of your tires (if you don't know I will just throw a reasonable number there), electric motor efficiency (usually around 90%).

My numbers though will assume no drag from the cars normal engine hookup.

If you want me to run the numbers for the batteries you got I can do that as well.
