- Less volatile chemistry, but at the expense of energy density
- better passive cooling(?), no need(or possibility) of liquid cooling
- smaller individual modules, more space efficient when stashing into various nooks like fuel tank space, around the motor, under the seats, etc.
- more BMS choices

Care to shed some light on what you're aiming for, in terms of performance, range, 2nd life batteries?  Hot rod or something more practical?
I like the size of the Tesla batteries, the best possible density and C rating is key. 
BMS is a no brainer for me Tongue

Light wheels and tires are always a big and easy savings. Trade all interior  items for a couple of fiberglass race seats on light brackets. These are items I would have on my hunt down/wish list. What type of motors are you planing?
I have no goals other than be able to drive it to get bread n milk! Everything else is a bonus. But I do want it safe, well finished, reliable & reproducible

I have the same idea with a fiat 126, good luck, i will follow this one with a close eye.
Fiat 126 sounds like a neat project!
