NanoFlowcell Quant F revealed ahead of Geneva debut

German based nanoFLOWCELL AG introduced their QUANT e-Sportlimousine concept last year at the Geneva Motor Show. The futuristic concept car uses flow-cell electric drive technology, described as: “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 drivetrain.”

This year the company will be showing an evolutionary model called the Quant F.

Visually very similar, but according to the company completely re-engineered and re-designed, featuring a revised carbon fibre monocoque offering more spacious interior, slimmer A-pillar, rear spoiler that deploys at 80 km/h (49 mph) and backlit crystal headlights with a “Q” formation when turned on.

The improved nanoFlowcell propulsion system with four electric mots at all four wheels produces now 1090 hp (up from 912) and is linked to a new 2-speed automatic transmission. The model has a longer range of 800 km (497 miles) and a top speed in excess of 186 mph.

This all sounds very promising and we look forward to seeing it in person next month in Geneva.
