NanoFlowcell's salt-water EV gets 1,075-hp update
Automaker Showed Off Models At This Year's Geneva Show
The biggest news may be the technology, though. NanoFlowcell says it will build a powertrain whose fuel cell will be powered not from a mix of hydrogen and oxygen, but from salt water (technically, an "electrolyte fuel"), which is certainly plentiful on this earth. The company, which operates out of Zurich, is planning to start construction on a new facility is calls "Quant City" next year in Ticino, Switzerland. It could be ready by 2018.
NanoFlowcell also has a couple of other models, as well. The Quant E also makes some big promises as far as performance and range, and looks very cool and intimidating as well. The Quantino is a little more modest. That model is supposed to have 136 horsepower, and the company says on its website that the car will be "affordable," but wasn't more specific about that that means. The car, which has a 2+2-seat set up, is said to have a range of more than 600 miles.
Concept versions of both the Quant F and the Quantino were shown off at this year's Geneva Motor Show. You can watch a video from earlier this year about the Quant F, above.
