New Electric Car

How much hp do I need to get a top speed of 100 miles. The car will be a vw golf.

I will have a 14400 ah capacity battery.

Can someone please recommend a motor?

What range will I get at 55 to 60 miles an hour?

Also, can someone also give me a list of components I need for my conversion.

Thank you so much!

There will be 72 batteries in total. Each one is 200 ah and weighs about 5.70kgs.
The mystery of 14400ah is solved!

I'm guessing you double multiplied your batteries, e.g. 72 x 3.2 = 230V, and then 72 x 200 = 14400Ah. You don't multiply Ah together unless you're connecting them in parallel.
