Rebellion has a new face.

WHERE ELSE IS BEING NEGATIVE SOMETHING POSITIVE?THE QUANT E. SUPER SPORTS CAR.

The QUANT E is the first prototype with the innovative nanoFlowcell® drive and energy storage concept. nanoFlowcell® technology, based on the flow cell principle, has launched an "electromobile" revolution. The energy generated from positively charged ionic liquid and negatively charged ionic liquid is so formidable that electric vehicles will become the new high-performance norm. In keeping with its revolutionary technology, the QUANT E is visually striking with a highly contemporary design and elegant forms.

FILLING UPWITH A CLEAR CONSCIENCE.

Will it be possible to build a fuel-station infrastructure suitable for nanoFlowcell®? Yes. When? Very quickly, because existing fuel stations can simply be retrofitted. There could also be standalone refuelling systems, installed in convenient locations or at home. Will it be interesting for consumers and providers in terms of costs? Yes. Why? Because refuelling with ionic fluid - one positively and one negatively charged liquid, is possible right now. And because the manufacture of ionic liquid is already inexpensive using current technology. On top of that, the ionic liquid is non-toxic, non-flammable and has a virtually infinite shelf life. All this is beneficial to mass production, logistics and storage, without any onerous regulatory requirements.

Filling up with the ionic liquid barely differs from the refuelling process for vehicles with internal combustion engines, only that this involves two liquids beings pumped simultaneously into two separate tanks within the vehicle.

Finally: The Autobahn!

IN 2014, THE QUANT E WAS CERTIFIED BY THE GERMAN TÜV.

WE NOW HAVE AN OFFICIAL ROAD LICENCE AND HAVE BEEN CLOCKING UP THE KILOMETRES EVER SINCE.


Spiritus Quantus!

NOBODY WOULD HAVE BELIEVED THE AMAZING REACTIONS THE QUANT WOULD AROUSE WHEN IT WAS PRESENTED TO THE PUBLIC FOR THE FIRST TIME.

AND WE HAD TO KEEP REMINDING OURSELVES THAT THOSE INDIVIDUALS ADMIRING THE DESIGN STILL KNEW NOTHING ABOUT THE EXCEPTIONAL TECHNOLOGY WITHIN.

At the very heart of the QUANT E prototype is the nanoFlowcell®, enabling the QUANT E to cover distances of up to 600 kilometres. The QUANT E has become the founder of an attractive electromobility proposition. Conceived in nanoFlowcell AG's simulation lab, the nanoFlowcell DigiLab in Zürich, the QUANT E has been running as a test vehicle every since. The findings it delivered were applied to the development of a new generation of vehicles with nanoFlowcell® drive - the QUANT FE sports saloon and the QUANTiNO mid-size sports car, pioneers of a new electromobility.

TIRELESS ENERGY SOURCE

The nanoFlowcell® functions as a tireless source of energy for the central storage unit as long as sufficient electrolytic fluid is present in the tanks. Once the reserve is used up, both tank contents need to be replaced. The prototype features a double tank system with dual filler necks, making this process is no more complicated than filling up a conventionally powered vehicle today.

A) Tank / B) nanoFlowcell®

Four electric motor units make up the QUANT e-Sportlimousine’s propulsion system. Alongside the tanks (A), there is the nanoFlowcell® (B), which continuously sends electrical energy to the central storage unit.

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY TRAVEL

The nanoFlowcell® is extremely environmentally friendly. It uses neither precious metals nor rare earths. The cell comprises mostly water as a carrier substance, metallic salts, and crystalline structures. All of these components can be combined, used, and disposed of with no damage to the environment.

C) Supercap

This energy storage unit is made up of two large high-performance “supercap” capacitors.

These capacitors are lossless electrical energy storage devices that can release energy very rapidly; an important criterion for a sports car’s driving performance.

A QUANTUM LEAP

Process engineers call the chemical activity inside the nanoFlowcell® “cold combustion”, though the internal operating temperatures can range from 60° to 160° Celsius depending on output. This low operating temperature range also contributes to the system’s excellent internal efficiency of more than 80%.

D) DRIVE MOTORS

Four identical, asynchronous three-phase drive motors (D) propel the QUANT e-Sportlimousine. They are designed to produce 680 kW (925 PS) each, though this peak is not achieved during driving. The overall performance of the powertrain is limited to a maximum of 480 kW (653 PS). In addition, there is a state-of-the-art central ECU (electronic control unit) responsible for controlling the driving- and charging-currents throughout the entire powertrain.
