Meet the nanoFlowcell Quant 48Volt: An Electric Car with a 300km/h Top Speed
nanoFlowcell Holdings will present its latest advances in flow cell research at 2017 Geneva International Motor Show. Wrapped in the extravagant bodywork of an electric sports car that is utterly unique in the automotive industry, the nanoFlowcell Quant 48Volt, the company is showcasing the state-of-the-art in modern flow cell research.
nanoFlowcell Holdings has succeeded in developing the first ever controllable flow cell that enables a standalone design for low-voltage electric drives without the need for heavy and expensive supercapacitors. And the 2+2-seater has no lack of power at its disposal – the 560 kW all-wheel drive delivers top speeds of up to 300 km/h.
However, nanoFlowcell® 48Volt is not just about powerful performance, but is also currently the lightest, safest, most environmentally compatible and most economical drive system available anywhere for electric vehicles.
What makes the nanoFlowcell Quant 48Volt so special is the radical new design of its flow cell drive. The previous model, the Quant FE, achieved its exceptionally sporty performance figures with a 700 V high-voltage drive system, whereby the Quant 48Volt runs entirely on low-voltage technology.
To compete in acceleration and power output with vehicles powered by internal combustion engines, conventional electric vehicles need electric drive systems with a battery voltage of 400 V and more. In fact, the automotive industry is currently contemplating increasing the voltage in electric vehicles to 800 V in future.
