    According to wikipedia all europe Prius V models have the lithium-ion battery, see quote below.

    Europe
    The European version is named Prius+ and was launched in June 2012. The European is offered with a lithium-ion battery, with three rows of seats with accommodations for seven passengers. Cumulative sales in the region totaled 38,200 units through April 2016.

    I will post my Dr. Prius test results later. So far I only disabled the reverse and the seat belt beep. I did make a screenshot of the main screen.

    Are there aftermarket rebuilders or replacements for the lithium batteries in Europe? How many miles or kms do people get out of the lithium batteries? In the US it was only the nickel-metal hydride.

    That I need to find out indeed. today i did a quick test and a full battery test the results speak for them selfs.
    Clearly block 8 is not in balance, I have 2 lipo chargers maybe it will help if I manually balance each cell.
    I think its better to order some new cells or even a hole pack to rebuild it completely.

    WOW, the Netherlands has much nicer looking V's than here in the states. I have a level 5 and it is not as nice as that. Really like the interior color and the third seat is pretty sweet.
