For those of you curious about the promise of flow cell batteries, the Nano Flowcell is getting furiously close to production. The Nano Flowcell QUANT e-Sportlimousine electric vehicle (EV) is out of this world.

Nano Flowcell QUANT e-Sport Limousine

She’s big. She’s impressive, and she’s powerful. Sporting highly exotic new flow batteries, this EV sports no less than four in-hub electric motors, delivering a total maximum output of 680kW (925PS or 912hp) with an astonishing output of 480kW (653PS or 644hp). The 0 to 62 MPH EV will raise your adrenaline level in a mere 2.8 seconds with a brisk top speed of 236-plus MPH!

Truly an electric hybrid, albeit, one that doesn’t need fossil fuel or hydrogen, it uses a battery technology bound to power the future of EVs. Using a battery and a fuel cell with a liquid electrolyte, this system uses liquid electrolytes flowing through a  cell with a membrane separating them. But if this sounds a little esoteric, suffice it to say, the cells produce 600 V and 50 A nominal current for a continuous output of 30 kW. The nanoFLOWCELL® is five times greater, performance wise by a weight ratio than current lithium-ion batteries. This gives the EV a range five times greater than most today based of the same weight.

According to Nunzio La Vecchia, Technical Director of nanoFLOWCELL AG: “The QUANT e-Sportlimousine is a research vehicle for road testing innovative energy storage systems, focusing especially on development and improvements in flow cell battery technology. The QUANT e-Sportlimousine is neither a show car, nor a concept car. It is the first automobile to be fitted with the nanoFLOWCELL® that is also designed from the ground up to meet all homologation requirements,”.

Ah but words are just that, so enjoy this video as a snapshot of what tomorrow will look like.

Oh, my poor wallet!

Flow cell batteries are just starting to prove themselves after a spectacular introduction a short while ago. The technological progression of EVs proves one thing, you can never guess what will happen tomorrow. After all, if we put men o the moon with nothing more than a calculator on board fifty years ago, think of what is to come.

Hat tip Zik Zak!
