The Buckeye Bullet team at Ohio State University is building a battery powered, electric vehicle that it hopes will be the first electric vehicle to exceed 400 miles per hour (670 km/hour).
The vehicle will be four-wheel drive and fitted with four electric motors each rated at 400 HP (total 1,600 HP). The power is provided by 80 flat “pouch” battery modules. Each module will hold 25 pouch cells. The pouch type batteries are a prototype iron nanophosphate lithium-ion battery from the manufacturer of A123 systems.
