A key feature of the innovative Quant e-Sportlimousine concept is the streaming battery powerplant. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h takes 2, 8 s, and the cruising range reaches 600 km. The car is driven by "salt water".
The Quant e-Sportlimousine electric car, presented at the Geneva Motor Show by nanoFLOWCELL, is powered by salt water. A key feature of the innovative Quant e-Sportlimousine concept is the 600 V stream battery powertrain, which the company is developing with Bosch: nanoFLOWCELL is responsible for the technology, and Bosch is responsible for its implementation in the vehicle. The power supply combines the advantages of traditional electrochemical batteries and fuel cells. The system guarantees high efficiency and does not require long recharging.
The Quant e-Sportlimousine unit works as follows. At the rear of the machine there are two independent tanks with a capacity of 200 liters. They are for electrolytes. Despite the fact that the composition of the fluids is not disclosed, nevertheless, nanoFLOWCELL calls them "salt water". With the help of pumps, electrolytes are fed into a chamber with a special thin ion-exchange membrane. This is how electricity is generated.
Energy is fed to supercapacitors, which can release a charge very quickly, which provides "amazing acceleration dynamics". The used electrolyte can be replaced with a new one. In addition, it can be reused after recharging
The machine is equipped with four three-phase electric motors, which produce 912 hp at their peak. Constant power is 640 hp. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h takes 2.8 seconds, the maximum speed is 380 km / h, and since the power plant operates with an internal efficiency of 80%, the range reaches from 400 to 600 km.
The electric vehicle, the length of which is about 5.3 m, width - 2.2 m, height - 1.35 m, weighs 2,300 kg.
The quadruple salon, made in a futuristic style, is equipped with displays and original controls.
The Quant e-Sportlimousine concept itself complies with European requirements, but for the use of the streaming battery on public roads, it must be approved. It is expected that by 2015-2016 the standardization procedure will be completed.
