No - freak accident. The owner was gone from home and a dumptruck parked uphill blocks away began rolling after its parking brake had failed. It crashed into the owner's home and caught fire, destroying the home, his Indian motorcycle collection, and both his electric vehicles, including "Red Beastie". He salvaged parts from the vehicles that he could.

I sketched out a battery arrangement with 2 parallel banks of 10 batteries each. To switch that over to 20 batteries in series, you would only need to shift 3 wires...
120v for distance, 240v for smoking tires!
