I am just starting and planning out my conversion of a 1996 S-10 pickup truck. I only need it to go 55-60 mph (65 mph is the top speed on one highway close by that I will probably not need to drive on much). Most of my trips will be under 10 miles round-trip. And I would like the 80% discharge range to be around 30 miles, although I could live with it being 20 miles.
So, by looking at a 120V system and a 144V system, it looks like the 144V system would cost about $500-$750 more. Would I need this in order to get decent acceleration? Or am I worried about nothing and 120V will work just fine.
