    Anybody know the capacity of the NiMH pack used in the LS600hL?

    Yes I know it is a silly car and a prime example of greenwash gone wild, but a colleague of mine is trying to track down this piece of data. I'd appreciate any help.

    If Siry can't find it then it must not be readily available.

    This document describes some details (and similarities) of the Highlander pack:

    Aren't they still limited by the Chevron/Texaco/Ovonic/Cobasys patents so all of their vehicles will use small capacity packs? There is a size/weight/cost issue too, so it seems to me that they would wait for Li-Ion before doing any meaningful plug-in capability.

    I just commented the other day that Elon said in a recent interview that none of the Famous got a free or discounted car.
