Liechtenstein, Germany-based company nanoFLOWCELL has touched more on their new QUANT e-Sportlimousine vehicle in a press release issued today.
This new concept features flow-cell electric drive technology. One of the main innovative elements behind this technology is the inclusion of liquid electrolytes. Drivers can replenish this fuel source at proposed electrolyte filling stations. The liquid electrolytes allow for a greater amount of energy storage and are also free of degradation and the “memory effect” in both charge capacity and regeneration.
Not only does the flow-cell electric drive technology allow for greater range, it also grants the electric motors access to power that may have been impossible to obtain before. Powering the car are four identical drive motors capable of producing 925 hp. But yet, the performance of the drive system is calibrated to a maximum of 653 hp.
Even more interesting is the company’s claim of each wheel receiving peak torque of 2,900 NM, which is roughly 2,138 lb-ft, on their website. nanoFLOWCELL also stated in the press release that the car will achieve a 0-62 mph sprint in just 2.8 seconds and it has a top speed of over 236 mph. If these figures do hold true, this will be a huge step forward for EV supercars.
