I believe the batteries in the new Civic are different (smaller) so they probably are Sanyo batteries.

Yes John. From the Green Car Congress site, this information is about the new battery pack for the 2006 Civic hybrid.

http://www.greencarcongress.com/2005/09 ... for_t.html

“The battery pack stores electricity in a bank of Nickel Metal-Hydride cells. This bank of 132 1.2-volt units stores up to 158 volts of electrical energy for the IMA motor compared to 144 in previous versions. A new Panasonic dual module casing reduces weight from previous hybrid battery packs and also allows it to increase efficiency of the electrical flow. The battery pack is also 12% smaller in volume than the prior.”

Although I could not find the reference, :? I believe I read that the cells were a different size, and mechanically more rugged than the previous design.
