Previously referred to only as the “new kid in town”, the concept now has a badge that follows NanaFlowCell’s other Quant-based names.
Meet the Quantino (or QUANTiNO as NanoFlowCell prefers); a ‘low-voltage’ electric concept rated at 48 volts and with a range of over 1,000km.
A pair of 175-litre tanks are filled with 350 litres of ionic fluid - one positively-charged, one negative - via a refuelling process NanoFlowCell says is similar to the way we currently refuel vehicles with internal combustion engines.
And if you think a driving range beyond 1,000km is impressive, NanoFlowCell says this technology is still in its infancy with much greater distances achievable in the future.
"This car is a sensation and will be one of the absolute highlights at the 2015 Geneva International Motor Show," NanoFlowCell’s Professor Jens Ellermann said.
"With the Quantino we present [an] innovative electric vehicle with mass appeal. Sporty, dynamic, and above all with a low-voltage drive system. With a rated voltage of only 48 volts we achieve four times 25kW, corresponding to around 136 BHP, through a combination of NanoFlowCell, buffer system and electric motors.”
The combined 100kW power output is enough to propel the Quantino to over 200km/h, in a vehicle 3.91 metres long, wearing 22-inch wheels with a 2+2 seating arrangement.
NanoFlowCell describes the Quantino as “affordable”, saying it’s an EV for everyone and that the concept previews a road-going model.
The carmaker hopes to fast-track the Quantino’s approval, with a view to seeing them on public roads by the end of this year.
