Geneva Motor Show: nanoFlowcell Quantino debuts as First Production-Ready Low-Voltage EV
  • QUANTiNO concept with the nanoFLOWCELL powertrain is ready!

The production ready low-voltage electric vehicle with nanoFlowcell powertrain will make its debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.

The first ever flow cell-powered concept will debut at the Geneva Motor Show. The pioneering Electronic Vehicle concept is called QUANTiNO. The concept is on the verge of full-scale production and will have near 1000km range.

nanoFLOWCELL is a Lichtenstein-based car-maker. According to nanoFLOWCELL they will reveal an updated version of its Quantino concept next month. The concept revealed at the Geneva motor show will be close to production. 

The concept is claimed to have passed all pre-production tests. The concept is a two-door coupe which made an impact at the 2015 Swiss motor show.

The concept features radical pure-electric vehicle was powered by two electrolytic fuel tanks. Instead of the usual lithium-ion cells the EV has a pioneering powertrain.  

One of the fuel tanks is filled with a positively charged solution, the other a negatively charged fluid. The auto maker claims the two tanks provide enough electricity for a range of almost 1000km.

The innovative flow cell technology separates the two charge fluids with a membrane. The positive ions flow through one side of the separating membrane.

Similarly the negative ions flow through the other side. The flow allows for an ion exchange which generates an electric current. The powertrain tanks can be easily refilled with new ionic solutions in a small amount of time.

The time taken is very little compared to recharging a conventional battery. As a bonus the battery solutions are non-flammable, non-toxic and non-volatile. The technology does not require the costly infrastructures.
