Saltwater-Powered Supercars

The Quant e-Sportlimousine is Powered by NanoFlowcell Technology

— July 21, 2014 — Autos
The Quant e-Sportlimousine is an incredibly futuristic supercar that uses special 'NanoFlowcell' technology that allows it to be powered exclusively by saltwater. The NanoFlowcell electrolyte flow cell power system was developed for NASA and is now finding its way into automotive applications.

The system creates electricity from an electrochemical reaction created by two electrolyte solutions; this electricity is forwarded to the car's super capacitors.

This allows the car to put out zero emissions while also giving it some pretty impressive performance statistics. It will be able to hit a top speed over 350 km/h and accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in only 2.8 seconds. It also boasts a range of more than 600 km.

The car will soon be tested on public roads in Europe before it enters production.
