Im familiar with prius cars since I have had two. I also have a Toyota Avalon hybrid.

they are using a 48 volt pack with a DC to DC buck converter to bring the voltage up to the 215 pack voltage for the NImh packs.
It looks promising to do it this way.  The DC to DC buck converter is a lot easier to find than a 215 volt battery charger would be.

A kick ass idea would be to turn the car into a back up generator.  I have seen a lot of them that will convert from 12 to 220 volts or 110 volts, but 
the 12 volt charging system in these cars is much more limited than the 215 volt charging system.

So getting an inverter that could work off the same 215 volt charging system would be something.
If you had that, then it might be simpler just to come up with a 215 volt charger.  Maybe dig into the prius plug in hybrid hardware.  should be cheap by now.
In fact, it may be much cheaper and easier to just get rid of the whole car and buy a plug in hybrid by default.

Unless of course you already have the prius on hand like I do.

i loved the idea for a few reasons that really work for me. 1. Can buy with out batteries 2. 48v so I can charge with solar & use the power when required in my home. 3. I can a second BMS Batrium naturally and probably make a custom harness that plugs the power in & the TX & RX of the Batrium harness
