Quant e-Sportlimousine Is Now Road Legal In Europe
Quant e-Sportlimousine concept with the nanoFLOWCELL drivetrain has been approved road legal for the European roads by TÜV Süd in Munich. Currently the team at nanoFLOWCELL AG together with its partners is working at top speed on the homologation of the Quant e-Sportlimousine Concept for series production. This is a historic moment for the company and the automotive world because for the first time flow-cell electric drive technology will appear on European roads. Fourteen years of hard development will be eventually put it into practice.
The concept vehicle has its premiere at this year's Geneva Motor Show. Now, after this approve, the automobile can be entered into detailed planning and development. This will enable nanoFLOWCELL AG to drive forward the wide range of possible applications and potential of the innovative drivetrain.
The concept car is powered by the nanoFLOWcell unit which is an anelectrolyte flow cell power system. It operates on the principles of the redox flowcell. The latter was developed in 1976 for NASA's American space program.
The result is that the vehicle has a driving range of up to 600 km and it is powered exclusively by salt water. It produces over 912 horsepower (670 kW) and has a projected top speed of over 350 km/h. The acceleration time of the car from 0 to 100 km/h is measured at 2.8 seconds.
