A company called nanoFLOWCELL AG announced the world premiere of QUANT e-Sportlimousine – “the First e-Sportlimousine with nanoFLOWCELL® Drive”.

Sadly, we don’t know what nanoFLOWCELL exactly is or what the heck it means, but we’ll all find out together in early March.

“With the new QUANT, head of development Nunzio La Vecchia and his team of engineers and designers are presenting a very special research vehicle: At over 5.25 metres in length, the four-seater sports car offers a unique combination of innovative technology, outstanding design and an entirely new energy storage system: the nanoFLOWCELL® technology. First navigable prototype is set to generate new and innovative ideas for ongoing research into battery development, specifically in the field of flow-cell technology.”

The four-seater, sportlimousine. comes with flow-cell battery technology, which can be charged like a normal battery or you can exchange the two chemical components dissolved in liquids and separated by a membrane for let’s say fast “charging.”

A few years ago, at the Geneva scene, we saw two QUANT concepts – Quant and earlier the Koenigsegg Quant with extraordinary performance on paper (comparable to Tesla Model S in terms of range and acceleration).

Here is the video with QUANT e-Sportlimousine:

And here are photos of the earlier concepts – Koenigsegg Quant from 2009 and Quant from 2010.

    yawn….

    Another supercar for the elite.

      I know, right, just like the Tesla Roadster… If only those fools blowing boatloads of cash on all the newfangled tech pioneered in those fancy things (sport cars, flat-screen TVs, mobile phones etc etc) could somehow help make it cheaper for the rest of us instead…

      1. Jouni Valkonen says:

        There should be 100 % tax for non-electric cars that are more expensive than $50 000 (including options). This would make the rich 2 % pay the development costs of wireless charging, supercharging infrastructure and long range batteries, because the rich do not have time to spend hours of time while charging or they do not have patience to every time plug-in the vehicle, if you can just pay few extra bucks and drive into your garage and charge wirelessly.

        It is just ridiculous to introduce small volume subsidized subcompact niche cars and try to make the middle class and tax payers to pay the development costs.

        The rich 2 % are buying about 5 % of all cars. If we make the rich buy only EVs, then it would make 5 % market share for EVs already today!

    drop-in sounds eerily like the zinc-chloride video.. hm..

    La QUANT e-Sportlimousine con nanoFLOWCELL avrà due sorelle: una sw che dovrebbe costare intorno ai 30.000(trentamila) euro e poi una city car da far invidia. A tutti gli appassionati di auto e a coloro che credono nell’energia alternativa: con solo 2(due) euro di energia elettrica con la Quant e-Sportlimousine si fano 500(cinquecento) chilometri. La velocità dichiarata è di 378(trecentosettantotto) kmh, ma si arriva fino a 425(quattrocentoventicinque) kmh. Ancora un po’ di pazienza e poi molti vostri dubbi si scioglieranno come neve al sole. A tutti: arrivederci al Salone di Ginevra.
