Quant E-Sportlimousine Gets Approved for European Roads

Toyota might have wowed people with the production FCV hydrogen sedan, but if you really want to see a performance version of almost the same technology, you’ll have to look at what NanoFlowcell did with their Quant E-Sportlimousine.

Earlier this year, the E-Sportlimousine concept got unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, promising to run only on saltwater and outperform a supercar.

As the company described it, the car “works like a combination of a battery and a fuel cell using liquid electrolyte, which is kept in two tanks and pumped through the cell”.

The thing gets even more interesting after you take a look at the numbers: the E-Sportlimousine can generate a maximum of 680 kW (920 hp) which can thrust it from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 2.8 seconds. Now, how’s that for a four-seater sport sedan?

Sounds a bit fantasist if you ask us, but the good news is that the car has been approved for testing on European roads and the company said to start rolling a prototype around soon.

The car carries the water in two 200-liter tanks, giving it a maximum range of 373 miles (600 km). The liquid then passes through a membrane in between the tanks along with the electrolyte creating an electric charge. The electricity is stored in supercapacitors and distributed to the four electric motors, one for each wheel.

Well, the technology sounds a lot better than hydrogen fuel cells, but the problem is the cost, with some experts evaluating the car at over $1.7 million (€1.3 million).
