I'm sure this car could go a lot faster but it gets pretty windy at around 55 and is no longer comfortable around 60.
Accelerationstandard great acceleration, it seems much faster than it probably is due to the fact that you feel the wind in your hair.

we could probably boost the range quite a bit if we wanted to change out the batteries for gel's.

Additional Featuresnot yet though there is much still to be done to make this car sell able.
This is replica of a 1929 Gazelle. this car was the fastest conversion of a car that we've ever done, only a week and a half. We bought this car from some one who was thinking of converting it to electric but never stated the actual conversion but he did remove all of the gas components and built battery boxes.
