The concept car features a Flow Cell powertrain

At the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, nanoFlowcell AG unveiled the Quant, an e-Sportlimousine concept car that features a flow cell powertrain. nanoFlowcell’s technology is said to feature high charge density, high performance density, and a much lighter weight compared to the conventional energy storage systems.

The vehicle’s windscreen, double bubble roof, and rear windows are designed to make the car aerodynamically efficient. It also has copper accents, gullwing doors, and an 22-inch alloy wheels. The e-Sportlimousine has a ‘crystal lake blue’ paint finish.

The detailed performance specification were not yet released, but the automaker says the concept concept car has a fuel cell powertrain wherein the flow cells combines electrochemical accumulator cell with the fuel cells.

“Liquid electrolytes are kept in two tanks and circulated through the cell. At the heart of the system, a membrane separates the two electrolytic solutions, but allows electrical charge to pass through and thereby produce power for the drive train," says nanoFlowcell.

With this, the concept car can travel up to 600km on a single charge.
