Is this the real deal or nothing but vaporware?
Building on the Quant e-Sportlimousine, carmaker NanoFlowcell AG has unveiled the Quant F ahead of its debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month. Boasting a “complete redesign of its predecessor,” the new model delivers a staggering 1,075 hp, can hit 62 mph in less than three seconds and tops out at 186 mph. The beautifully sculpted electric super-sedan uses four separate motors powered by electricity generated from a “flow battery.”
It uses two 250-liter onboard tanks of negatively and positively charged electrolyte solutions that are circulated through a central cell stack. A membrane separates the solutions, while allowing for the electrical charge to pass through in order to produce power for the drivetrain. As well as creating more power than most hypercars, the Quant F boasts a range of around 500 miles. A unique two-speed automatic transmission will send all that power to a permanent four-wheel-drive system. Although when rapid acceleration is needed, the front axle is declutched, switching power exclusively to the rear wheels. A two-stage aerofoil also deploys above 50 mph for “even sportier driving.”
