2015 Geneva Motor Show: nanoFlowcell hosts two world premieres

By ,

The 2015 Geneva Motor Show features two world premieres by nanoFlowcell including the QUANTiNO and QUANT F. 

“We see the flow-cell technology as the most promising technology with the greatest potential for the future of sustainable electromobility without harmful emissions,” said Nunzio La Vecchia, Chief Technical Officer of nanoFlowcell AG. “It offers an enormous range as well as exceptional performance. For us it represents the best alternative to battery-powered or fuel cell-powered electric vehicles. The flow-cell drive system eliminates many of the disadvantages inherent in existing drive systems and it is also more cost-effective. In our view, the flow cell is the future of electromobility.”

With the new QUANTiNO, nanoFlowcell AG unveiled the world's first QUANT low-voltage vehicle as a concept car. Operating on a rated voltage of only 48 V, the QUANTiNO generates an output of four times 25 kW/136 hp with a combination of nanoFlowcell, buffer system and electric motors. The QUANTiNO has a top speed of more than 200 km/h and a range of over 1,000 km. A 2+2 seater with a length of 3.91 metres, the car impresses with its unique design. One stand-out detail: the 22” wheels, which the QUANTiNO inherited from its big brothers QUANT E and QUANT F. 

Meanwhile, the new QUANT F is an impressive demonstration of the fact that enormous performance and environmental sustainability do not have to be mutually exclusive. A complete re-design of its predecessor, QUANT E, the electric vehicle equipped with nanoFlowcell technology can reach speeds of more than 300 km/h and has an all-electric range of up to 800 kilometres. With its new 2-speed automatic transmission, the 5.25-metre e-sports sedan weighing in at 2.3 tonnes and capable of carrying four people can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in only 2.8 seconds.
