Hi Invent
Not sure if 170 hp is enough for 150 mph

You want 100 miles range - I assume that is at highway speed

So you need about 40 Kwhrs for your range

170 Hp is 127 Kw - a 40 Kwhr battery should be capable of delivering that for a short period

Why do you want lifepo4 batteries?? - they will be much more expensive and not as good as using Tesla or Leaf or Volt batteries

The voltage required depends on the motor/controller that you have

The cheapest way of meeting your requirements would be get a complete scrapped Nissan Leaf and transferring the bits across + a new controller brain board
