Are these batteries any good ?

Hey guys, my first post here. Planning on building an EV soon and just figuring out what parts to get. Im planning in using these batteries. Im going to run 12 of them in series. Would they be good enough for this engine ? The car im going to use would probably be an 89 TN Magna ( roughly 1200kg )
