QUANT e-Sportlimousine with nanoFLOWCELL Drivetrain

The new QUANT e-Sportlimousine with its new powertrain and energy storage concept is quite literally a quantum leap in the development of electric mobility. Built around an extremely stable monocoque composed of carbon fiber structures, the four-seater with gull-wing doors is an innovative and intelligent vehicle concept. Four electric motors, one per wheel, draw their power from a nanoFLOWCELL energy storage system which works on the proven principles of the redox flow cell. Flow cells combine aspects of electrochemical accumulator cells with those of fuel cells. Liquid electrolytes are kept in two tanks and circulated through the cell. At the heart of the system, a membrane separates the two electrolytic solutions, but allows electrical charge to pass through and thereby produce power for the drive train. (If you’re lost already, don’t worry, you’re not alone.)

Another distinctive feature of the new QUANT e-Sportlimousine are its wooden operating controls. The new sensorFLOW technology provides a visual highlight never seen before in automobile control elements. At first glance, you only seen the natural, smooth ash wood surfaces. Once the QUANT e-Sportlimousine is activated, the control elements become visible through the natural wood. The interior also features modern display technology more than 1.25 meters wide and 16 centimeters tall, the front display gives this car that widescreen cinema feeling. The QUANT e-Sportlimousine’s complete infotainment system is implemented in an Android-based system. The new QUANTmobile App allows the driver to access the QUANT e-Sportlimousine’s climate and infotainment controls from outside the vehicle. Driving statistics and navigation functions are also accessible from a smartphone.

The QUANT e-Sportlimousine has recently been approved for use on public roads in Germany and Europe as a whole. Currently the nanoFLOWCELL team and its partners are “working at top speed on the homologation of the QUANT e-Sportlimousine with nanoFLOWCELL for series production.” With a projected top speed of over 217 mph, acceleration from 0-60 mph in 2.8 seconds, a torque of “four times 2,900 NM,” a length of over 5.25 meters, and a range of more than 373 miles, the four-seater QUANT e-Sportlimousine is not only a highly competitive sports car but also well ahead of its time.
