There is currently only 1 electric vehicle that passed 200 mph in the quarter mile, and it was a motorcycle that went 201.37mph in a 6.940 second run.

The fastest electric vehicle dragster (non-motorcycle) was back in 2007 and did 159.85 mph pass in 7.956 seconds.

Don Garlits will make the attempt in the SR-37 dragster.

Interestingly, there is some talk in the press release about a Kickstarter launch, but nothing seems to have transpired since the Feb 18th press release?

Here is an image of the full specs on the car, and you can visit http://insideevs.com/big-daddys-sr-37-d ... -mile-run/ for a full writeup

Now they've turned to kickstarter to try and raise funds.
