’72 Datsun World’s Quickest Electric Car

World’s quickest electric car is a ’72 Datsun, does 0-60 in 1.8 seconds / Out on the dragstrip, the last vehicle you’d expect to be crushing BMWs and Ferraris is a 1972 Datsun. But John Wayland’s White Zombie is anything but ordinary.

The electrified Datsun 1200 does 0-60 in a jaw-dropping 1.8 seconds. The two-door coupe sports a dual-armature 9″ series-wound electric motor that was specially built for Wayland. Its battery pack is 192 lithium-polymer cells totaling to 355 Volts and 22.7 kWh of energy.

The vehicle has a 90-mile range and it is even street legal. With over 500-plus horses, it’s no surprise the Zombie takes a quarter-mile in just ten seconds.
