Anyone used NCM (3.7V) cells in an EV? Thoughts?

These cells are shown on EVPower's website (Shenzhen Westart I think). Advantage is higher voltage (fewer cells in a pack); disadvantage appears to be limited discharge current to 2C or less. Anyone used them, imported or bought them? Any other sources known?

James Hill used them in his endurance car (but he was pulling 0.2 C most of the time) I thought they were good for 5C or more?

Datasheet suggests 3C continuous and 10C burst.
It's only a disadvantage if you want a short range or a high performance ev.
