quant 1 640x320Earlier this year, a German company by the name of Quant took the wraps off a car powered by the company’s nanoFLOWCELL technology. If advancements in vehicular technology is of interest to you, you might be pleased to learn that the vehicle is expected to make its debut on the road as it has been approved for real-world testing by the TUV, Germany’s road safety monitoring agency.

Now safe to say that based on the photos alone that the Quant e-Sportlimousine is pretty stunning in terms of design, and while that is definitely noteworthy, we guess the highlight of the car would be its flow-cell technology. Described as a cross between regular batteries and fuel-cells, flow-cell technology sees liquid electrolytes being circulated through two tanks, where electrical charges are passed from one cell to another, producer enough power for an electric drivetrain.

They are also boasting a range of 600km and will be able to go from 0 to 62mph in an impressive 2.8 seconds, with a top speed of over 217mph.

It is unclear as to when the vehicle will actually go into mass production and be sold to the masses, but we guess one step at a time, assuming that its real-world road testing is successful.
