There are hybrids, electric vehicles and even self-driving cars on the roads today. The Quant e-Sportlimousine is taking things to a whole new level with flow-cell energy storage technology. Yes, a vehicle powered by something quite new has been given the green light in Europe to begin production.
A saltwater powered vehicle…does it get any greener than that? The Quant e-Sportlimousine will fuel itself with renewable energy. Ok, so they are not exactly pumping seawater into the tank, but it is still very futuristic.
The Nanoflowcell Quant e-Sportlimousine at a glance:
- She emerged at this year’s Geneva Motor Show.
- The powertrain is a notch above what the word ‘unique’ is cable of conveying. It uses cutting edge flow-cell energy storage. This technology has been tested in Germany and perhaps other places in Europe and is now approved for use in production vehicles.
- How it works: It is an electric vehicle without the need for batteries. The tanks of negatively and positively charged electrolyte solutions are pumped through a cell stack to generate electricity. The power goes to the four electric motors of the car.
- The gullwing doors are for looks–it does not double as a submarine.
- Nanoflowcell is talking salty about the benefits, claiming that the e-Sportlimousine is much more than just green. They say it can hit the 0-60 mile per hour jump in a scant 2.8 seconds and deliver a top speed of 218 MPH.
- At the Geneva show, Nanoflowcell said that the peak output for the model would sit at around 912 horses. The general operating power would be around 650 with the 912 available.
- The range for the car is an impressive 373 miles, making it a palatable option against the plug-ins and hybrids.
