New ultracap on the market... how does this relate to the EV market?

Maxwell has released a 125 and 390 volt version of thier 2.7V boost cap with 63F of capacitance.

What does this translate to in terms of kWH?

Is it worthwhile to start doing advance dc 8" or 9" motors in a 120 Volt system with a couple of these thrown in as well?

Or is it still only for regenerative braking applications?

Thing tips the scales at .7m / .4m / .3/ and weighs 53 kilos, jesus. Thats like 4 extra batteries, a 168 volt system is prolly better.

What kind of capacitance would something like that require to be feasable for EV's?

200F? 500F?
