A year ago in Geneva, NLV Solar and Swedish supercar builder Christian von Koenigsegg turned up with a four-seat electric car that incorporated photovoltaic energy collectors in the body surface. At that time, it was nothing more than a styling buck. Next week, again in Geneva, NLV will be back to provide an update on the Quant (this time without Koenigsegg). The company is now planning to have a running prototype of the Quant on the road later this year with a production-certified machine by 2012.

The Quant is planned to be the first production car with a four-seat carbon fiber chassis and a body entirely covered in a thin solar film. Propulsion will come by way of a quartet of 150 kilowatt electric motors. We'll be looking for more details next week.
