    I am scratch my head trying to find the difference between the modules of the Gen 2 to the Gen 3 Prius.

    The capacity is the same
    The Voltage is the same.

    But the kwh peak output is different.

    Is the gen3 just asking more from the batteries? Or is there some sneaky business going on with internal resistance and improveemtns like that being made? The mpg of even the new 2015 is still estimates around 50mph which is what ive always got in my 2007 (maybe 46-48 in my hilly CT area)

    SO IS IT THE SAME?
    I am very confused that the technology has not been improved upon with the batteries

    Any please help. Ill post this to the Gen 4 forum as well
