Quant e-Sportlimousine Electric Car Concept Unveiled in Geneva
Amongst the array of stunning cars on display at the Geneva Motor Show currently taking place in Switzerland is an all-electric sports concept by nanoFLOWCELL.
The Quant e-Sportlimousine is a 912 hp electric sedan that uses an innovative new energy storage method involving flow cells that combine electrochemical accumulator cells and fuel cells. This is said to makes the car’s batteries 5-times more efficient than conventional lithium-ion ones.
For a full technical explanation, it is perhaps best left to its makers, who say that “flow cells combine aspects of electrochemical accumulator cells with those of fuel cells. Liquid electrolytes are kept in two tanks and circulated through the cell.
“At the heart of the system, a membrane separates the two electrolytic solutions, but allows electrical charge to pass through and thereby produce power for the drive train."
As far as performance goes, the car’s four in-wheel motors allow it to go from 0-100 km/h in just 2.8 seconds and reach a top speed of 380 km/h, while providing a range of 400-600 km.
NanoFLOWCELL claim that a road-going version of the Quant e-Sportlimousine could arrive on the market next year.
The Quant e-Sportlimousine will be on display at the Geneva show until March 16th.
