NanoFlowcell Quant 40Volt Coming To Geneva With Revolutionary Tech, Mind-Blowing Performance

Modern supercars seem like dinosaurs next to NanoFlowcell’s latest creation, the Quant 40Volt.

Teased in an official image ahead of its 2017 Geneva Motor Show premiere on March 7, the vehicle, which is still in prototype form, is said to benefit from the world’s first variable-controllable mobile flow cell.

It runs on an electrolyte liquid called ‘bi-ION’, which was developed by NanoFlowcell Research Gmbh, and it’s said to be “non-toxic, non-flammable and environmentally compatible”. Moreover, the estimated cost of the fuel, on an industrial scale, is less than 10 cents per liter. With this technology, the NanoFlowcell Quant 40Volt has a claimed driving range of more than 1,000 km (620 miles).

Providing it with “sports car performance” are the six cells arranged in series, and 4 new, innovative low-voltage electric motors that develop 760 horsepower, combined. NanoFlowcell states that accelerating from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) takes just 2.4 seconds, and top speed is electronically limited to 300 km/h (186 mph).

The small Lichtenstein-based automaker said it plans to put the new Quant 40Volt into production, without giving a time-frame.

    Automaker? Perhaps automaker of show cars. They have been going for years without selling anything. Most likely the same story for this car.

      exactly my thoughts, i was about to say i’ve been hearing about their “revolutionary” tech for years already but we still don’t get a real car ready for the masses, not even for the rich ones… less talk, more action

      True, but for a company like this which can actually literately end range anxiety and have a true practical way of bridging the population from gas to electric will have far more hurdles to jump than just a regular battery car.

      Developing and selling cars is HARD. Insanely difficult. Let’s try and keep a positive attitude for them.

      The transition to electric cars brings the opportunity for a host of new entrants to break in to the sector. Not all will succeed of course.

      • Big Black Duck

        thanks for your common sense in a sea of ignorant comments

      • Agree completely. These are incredibly exciting and challenging times for the entire industry, as a consumer this is brilliant. Blows the cobwebs out of certain automakers too ….

    So I did a bit of digging, and contrary to what the article states, NanoFlowcell is targeting 2018 as their release date for the Quant. This looks to be a serious enterprise, and not vaporware. It would appear Tesla has a bullseye on its back, considering how many companies are coming out with their own electric car proposals. As for the fuel, bi-ion fuel technology is supposed to be safer, and more environmentally safe than regular gasoline. It’s also cheaper at a projected 10 cents per liter. From what I read, it seems that bi-ion is what is used to power the fuel cells. The teaser pic shown, bares a striking resemblance to NanoFlowcell’s Quant F, that was shown at the last Geneva Auto Show. If it looks anthing like the Quant F, and this indeed makes it to market, I’m diggin’ it!

      the rear looks very good. the rest as shown here, not so much.

  • donald seymour

    This is the bridge of the future. I believe this car is the car to take over the prehistoric gas technology.

  • Tumbi Mtika

    We’ll see. When I get to drive it somewhere that’s not Asphalt 8.

  • TheBelltower

    Alt energy vehicle concepts are the new vaporware. Perhaps interesting to investors. But only mildly interesting to the marketplace since most of them never see the light of day.

  • Knotmyrealname

    That’ll be shut down soon. “No, no, no” say the oil giants.
    And what happened to Audi’s synthetic diesel?

  • i love to see this car in to production !! i love this technology !!!!
