In presenting the taste of modern technology a principle known since the 70s in the space industry, NanoFlowcell offers electric vehicles going far and fast. However, it must be transported several hundred liters of ionic fluids. And if it was the future of electro-mobility?
Flow Cell technology operates from two ionic liquids, one positively charged and the other negatively charged, which fill two separate wells in the car, in the same way we do currently with hydrocarbons.Slurries to metal salts particles continuously supplied a redox battery ensuring both the creation and the buffer storage of electrical energy. Both fluids exchange of ions across a membrane, thereby creating a current flow of 735 V at 92 A. According to the manufacturer the redox battery would have a capacity of 5 times that of the lithium-ion batteries in the same weight (600 Wh / kg) .
NanoCell is the first customer of its technology. He has presented at its stand a supercar, the Quant F. With two fluid reservoirs 250 liters each, it would have a range of 800 km, without presenting anemic performance. That we judge! This electric sports sedan 5.25 meters and 2.3 tonnes, can carry four people, has 4 electric motors developing a total of 800 kW (1090 hp). It would go from 0 to 100 km / h in just 2.8 seconds and reach a top speed of 300 km / h.
The QUANT e-Sportlimousine features the revolutionary nanoFLOWCELL® energy storage technology -- a further development of tried and tested redox flow-cell systems. The very compact and powerful nanoFLOWCELL® battery system can power the QUANT for a driving range of up to 600 kilometres.
