I had never heard of theis battery before. Requirine a 270C temp
reduces functionality quite a bit , I would imagine.

They've been round a while. Never caught on much for the reasons you suggest.

This article may be of some help.
Note that the cars in this project are using 25 KWH Zebra batteries,
and getting 150 KMs range.
I have had no success getting any prices for Zebra batteries.
I would abandon the idea of using batteries of any type and instead
look at something like
Methanol Fuel Cells.
Batteries, no matter what sort , are simply too heavy.

The problem with fuel cells is that you have to have a battery to
provide the power for sudden demands for additional current. Fuel
cells produce at a constant rate. SO even with a cell you still would
need a battery.
