    Jonathan M. Gitlin, July 19, 2016 (Ars Technica)

Smith used 44 more cells to supplemente] the existing 144-cell Hyperdrive Innovation lithium-ion battery pack…[and boosted the car from 370v to 400v…The new battery pack also boosts the Flux Capacitor's range to about 50 miles (80km), up from the previous 30 mile/48km range…” click here for more
