    Out of curiosity, today I looked at a comparison of EV vehicle weight to battery size for a few EVs. I'm not sure it means a whole lot, but I found it interesting and thought I would post here before I delete it from my mind and computer.

    Model
    Weight (lbs)
    Battery (KWh)
    lbs/KWh
    Tesla Roadster
    2690
    53
    50.75
    Tesla Model S (85) 4647 85 54.67
    Tesla Model S (60) 4464 60 74.40
    Mercedes B-Class 3164 36 87.89
    Tesla Model S (40) 4464 40 111.60
    BMW i3 2800 22 127.27
    Chevy Spark EV 2989 21 142.33
    Nissan Leaf 3422 24 142.58
    Ford Focus EV 3640 23 158.26
    Mitsubishi i-MiEV 2579 16 161.19
    I'm not certain on the numbers. Most weights came from stats on the Motor Trend website, with the exception of Model S 40 and 60 weight, which I found on a post on this site. Battery size stats came from various sites. List is sorted lowest to highest on lbs/KWh. Feel free to indicate corrections.
