Electric car maker nanoFlowcell has pulled the wraps off its new Quant F electric four-seat saloon at the Geneva motor show.
The Liechtenstein-based company says the Quant F is a re-engineered and redesigned version of the Quant e-Sportlimousine concept previewed at last year’s Geneva motor show and is capable of an 800km (500-mile) all-electric range.
Measuring 5.25 metres long, the Quant F is powered by four electric motors with a peak output of 1075bhp for a limited duration and a maximum rated voltage of 735V, compared with the e-Sportlimousine's 912bhp and 600V.
The transmission is a new, in-house-developed two-speed automatic, “the like of which has not yet existed”, says nanoFlowcell. Top speed is reported to be 186mph.
Chief technical officer Nunzio La Vecchia says the car is powered by the firm’s own flow cell battery storage technology with an ionic liquid.
“Instead of using hydrogen and oxygen as in a conventional fuel cell, we work with two ionic fluids – one with a positive charge and one with a negative charge," he says.
