Liechtenstein-based electric vehicle startup nanoFlowcell has teased its latest creation, the QUANT 48VOLT, ahead of its public debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show next month.
The QUANT 48VOLT features for the first time the new nanoFlowcell 48VOLT low-voltage drive with the world’s first variably controllable mobile flow cell for a constant source of electrical energy and all-new low-voltage electric motors providing propulsion of race-car proportions.
The “extravagant bodywork” of the QUANT 48VOLT underscores the unique standing of the flow cell super sports car, while the naked figures hint at just what can be expected from this electric powerhouse – all-wheel drive with 760 hp (4 x 140 kW), 2.4 seconds from zero to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) and a electronically limited top speed of 300 km/h (186 mph).
Despite its performance potential, the QUANT 48VOLT has a claimed driving range of over 1000 km (620 miles), which would make it more efficient than both the Quant E (598 km / 372 miles) and Quant F (800 km / 497 miles).
An improved cell membrane in the nanoFlowcell, six cells arranged in series and new, innovative low-voltage motors deliver sports car performance for the very first time from a low-voltage architecture.
“QUANT 48VOLT: The future of electric mobility runs on a flow cell – and at low voltage, too! nanoFlowcell not only stands for ultimate performance, but also presents itself here as the lightest, safest, most environmentally compatible and economical powertrain system currently available anywhere for electric vehicles,” said nanoFlowcell in a press release.
