Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Tesla (and many others) use Lithium-Ion batteries of course, expensive but best Wh/kg. The battery is usually the single most expensive component of EV, some vendor lease the battery.

The Modec van uses Zebra batteries with charge-discharge effiency above 90% (IIRC).


Even with NiMH AA batteries, 66% is near the absolute worst :).
