Hi Christian,

A treadmill motor would be designed to run off 110 or 240 volts. A car
battery is 12 volts.
You may be able to get a transformer to allow the motor (110v) run off a
12 volt car battery, however it may not run for very long.

It would be worth looking at the following document which a fellow
kartbuilder created. Its an electrical vehicle and they go through the
type of motor and battery they used.

Best of luck,
