Worlds fastest street legal ELECTRIC CAR 1972 Datsun 1200 Whtie Zombie.
This car is based in Oregon... there are something like 18 hydro electric

Only about 15% of the energy from the fuel you put in your tank gets used
to move your car down the road or run useful accessories, such as air
conditioning. The rest of the energy is lost to engine and driveline
inefficiencies and idling. Therefore, the potential to improve fuel
efficiency with advanced technologies is enormous. With an Electric Car it
costs just $1.00 per 100kms with MUCH more performance than with petrol at
$20.00 per 100kms.
EVs use between 1/6th and 1/10th the energy of a comparable ICE powered
