The numbers thrown out by NanoFlowcell are pretty impressive. The Quant 48Volt's motor will deliver 760 horsepower that will propel the all-wheel-drive car from 0 to 62 miles per hour in a tidy 2.4 seconds. And the car will have a top speed of about 180 miles per hour.
The car's layout, complete with tanks for positive and negative liquid electrolytes, allows for 40 gallons of fluid and a full-tank range of more than 600 miles. More impressive on the green front is that the company estimates the liquid to cost less than a nickel per gallon. The unknowns, are the price of the car, the expected on-sale date, and whether any of these numbers will pan out.
NanoFlowcell was pitching a model called the Quant F way back in the fall of 2015, saying that the gull-winged beast delivered more than 1,000 horsepower. At the time, the company said it was planning a Switzerland plant that would start producing vehicles as soon as 2018, which indeed is coming up pretty soon. The company also said it was working on a more reasonably-priced (again, we have no point of comparison) model called the Quantino, whose motor was to deliver a far-more-modest 136 horsepower.
