One-man Rocket EV hits over 200 mph in under 7 seconds (video)

Rocket EV

You won't be driving away in this by the end of 2012, but you can expect it to smoke the EV competition. Shawn Lawless and his Rocket drag bike managed to hit just over 200 miles per hour at the Virginia Motorsports Park. We could eke out a few more words about the 14.2-kWh battery, but we'd prefer to let the video do the talking -- it's right after the break.
