A quick calculation using the 1000amps and the 1ma or so rds-on shows why todays hybrids use higher voltage batteries. A new hiV battery standard will enable hybrids really take off. We should be able to go to COSTCO or Walmart and have our 400V battery replaced.

combined with micro-flywheels like used in race cars now can double this 5 to 10% because wasted no load power as one comes to a stop can be stored. Also air storage can be cheaper and lighter doing the same as the flywheel. less electronics but need a storage tank. needs to be included in frame design to not take a weight hit.
