This electric go-kart reaches speeds in excess of 60mph.

A teenage boy, Mfanday, has marked all these statements wrong by developing a 50KW electric go-kart.

The machine is powered by eight 12V deep cycle batteries and a 48V 100 amp PWM motor controller, which enables the vehicle to reach a top speed of over 60mph. No word on for how long the built-in systems can generate that whopping power, but the system does demonstrate the potential of electric engines.
