Both the Volt and the FFE use LG batteries. I doubt that the number of cells is the same because the Volt battery is 288 prismatic cells with a size of 16 kWh ( http://gm-volt.com/full-specifications/ ). The FFE size is 23 kWh.michael wrote:I've read the Volt battery pack has 96 cells in series, with a nominal battery Voltage of around 360, which I think is pretty much the same as Ford's.
Interesting, but that information seems to be about a prototype vehicle (see the comment near the illustration, and the illustration itself, which doesn't look exactly like a production FFE).Arthur wrote:Here's the source of the battery cell info. Also, all 7 modules (and the cells within them) are in a single series circuit.

As WattsUp says, this info may only apply to a prototype. In some earlier threads, a Ford service manager states that there are 88 cells of about 4.1V each, for a total pack voltage of ~360V:jeffand wrote:Ford Focus Electric gets its power from seven lithium-ion battery packs, each with 14 cells. Or a grand total of 98 cells. I think the battery pack voltage is 325 volts.
I think that can be done yourself with ForScan too.Carbuff wrote:On a side note, I was chatting with the tech at the dealership that is holding my car hostage, and he said that his software in his scan equipment lets him view the actual voltage of each cell of the battery. I thought that was pretty interesting.
