Hello, here in Europe we have the renault zoe available, I suppose it's a similar drivetrain if now exact to the leaf.
The batteries are rented from renault at 100$/month, voltage approx 400, max speed 110kmh.
Can I put my 100v batteries in there and give them their battery back?

I don't think most of the ancillary equipment will run on a voltage that low. And if it did, the car would be a bit slow.

Thanks! I'm very keen on stripping AC and and anything else than motion

The Leaf's pack voltage is 360+ volts. The car would perceive 100 volts as a dead pack.
