World’s fastest electric boat

mercedes-amg-cigarette-racing-team-38-foot-electric-go-fast-boat-14Now this is cool…a 100+mph electric powered speedboat!  It features twelve electric motors (six per prop) and a 240kWh lithium-ion battery pack.  That pack is wired to produce 400V, and can provide a mind blowing 6000A!  But then, a boat like this is built for marketing purposes primarily, speed secondary, and range, well, range isn’t really a consideration for these vehicles yet.  At full speed, you get about ten minutes run time.  🙁
