This array of engines, use not 3ft/sec, not 6ft/sec, nor even 100ft/sec, but 30m/sec linear pistons powered each by the discharge of 22,000uF capacitors, charged by 100kWh battery pack.
Apart from the pistons operating in a vaccuum and there being no gas to transfer (hence, no need for four stroke)
the remainder of the mechanics of the engine are very similar to a petrol engine.
This provides the 'mouthfeel' and rumble of a petroleum car with some of the efficiency and emissions qualities of an electric.

||Hang on. Are you driving the pistons as linear motors within
||Something about the title hinted to me that I would have no
idea what this idea is about. At all...
||I think what he's talking about is this. You can get linear
electric motors, which slide rather than turning. You could
therefore use them to drive pistons up and down, as a sort of
petrol-less petrol engine. It wouldn't be very efficient, but it
would give you a sort of growly electric vehicle.

||Yes, but would it be able to reach the pedals?
