I would guess that's what they'll do as was recommended by an MIT battery expert but it sounds like the entire system was engineered for the lithium-ion.
Sounds like it'll add a lot of weight and of course cost big bucks but I don't see how they can keep the present system due to the hazards without a breakthrough in technology.
