Those cells can be configured in various parallel and series combinations to match the desired voltage, but whatever the configuration they will only hold about 4 kWh of energy. That's either extremely short range, or very low speed, or some combination of the two.

30 cells * 3.2 V * 40 Ah/cell = 3,840 Wh

30S1P: 40 Ah @ 96 V
15S2P: 80 Ah @ 48 V
10S3P: 120 Ah @ 32 V

For comparison, a typical plug-in hybrid car has four times that energy capacity and only goes 80 km (50 miles) or less on it; even with a car half the weight of a typical modern compact car, that suggests a range of about 40 km (25 miles).
