Copy existing store-bought or Internet designs.

How do i connect them?
In series through a speed control device.

Accel. depends on the motor's torque/speed curve, how much you weigh and what kind of hill you're climbing.
More battery amp-hours equals more operating time. The battery will last a lot longer on level ground.
