QUANT e-Sportlimousine with futuristic nanoFLOWCELL drivetrain approved for European road use

German based nanoFLOWCELL AG introduced their QUANT e-Sportlimousine concept with nanoFLOWCELL drivetrain back in March at the Geneva Motor Show and the company has now announced, that after an in-depth inspection by TÜV Süd, the vehicle has now been officially approved for use on public roads in Germany and Europe as a whole.

This is big news for the company and perhaps even to the whole auto industry as it is the first time an automobile featuring flow-cell electric drive technology will appear on Germany’s roads.

The drivetrain besides electric motors is quite hard core science, 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.”

The company is now “working at top speed” on a production version and the projected performance specs are incredible.

Four electric motors produce a combined output of 644bhp and a “torque of four times 2,900Nm”. 0-62mph is projected in just 2.8 seconds, top speed over 236mph and range up to 373 miles.

Very impressive for a four-seater car with a length of over 5.25 m.
