Salt Water Powered Car Gets European Approval

A car which uses an electrolyte flow cell power system is now certified for use on European roads. The car is called the Quant e-Sportlimousine, which made its debut at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.

Not only can this car run on salt water, but it is claimed that the car has peak power of 920 horsepower (680 kW), 0-62 mph (100 km/h) in 2.8 seconds and a top speed of 217.5 mph (350 km/h).

Quant e sportlimousine electric limousine 2014 GenevaA car which uses an electrolyte flow cell power system is now certified for use on European roads. The car is called the Quant e-Sportlimousine, which made its debut at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.

Not only can this car run on salt water, but it is claimed that the car has peak power of 920 horsepower (680 kW), 0-62 mph (100 km/h) in 2.8 seconds and a top speed of 217.5 mph (350 km/h).

“We are delighted as pioneers to be able to present an automobile driven by flow cell technology on public roads, and one which achieves not only fantastic performance values but also zero emissions, a projected top speed of over 350 km/h (217.5 mph), acceleration from 0-100 in 2.8 seconds, a torque of four times 2,900 Nm (2,139 lb-ft) and a range of more than 600 km (373 mi)” said Nunzio La Vecchia, the visionary behind the development of the sports car.

After an in-depth inspection of the car, the German TÜV Süd in Munich handed over the official registration plate, now the company will be able to test the car on public roads in Germany and Europe as the company prepares for series production.

The flow cell system powering the Quant e-Sportlimousine’s four electric motors develops electricity from the electrochemical reaction created by two electrolyte solutions. This electricity is forwarded to super capacitors where it’s stored and distributed.

Image
In an interview, La Vecchia stated the benefits of the NanoFlowercell system; “The power density of the nanoFLOWCELL® at 600 W per kilogram or per litre is greater than any comparable system; five times greater, to be specific. That means you can drive five times further with our system than you can with a conventional battery system, including the most state-of-the-art lithium-ion batteries. The system is also extremely safe to operate and environmentally friendly. Most importantly, since there are almost no moving parts and it produces negligible waste heat, it has an efficiency of more than 80%. There has never been anything like it.”

Hopefully the company will take the NanoFlowcell technology beyond supercars, bringing it down to more affordable cars, however the potential of this technology reaches far beyond the road.

“We’ve got major plans, and not just within the automobile industry,” says NanoFlowcell AG Chairman of the Board Prof. Jens-Peter Ellermann. “The potential of the NanoFlowcell is much greater, especially in terms of domestic energy supplies as well as in maritime, rail and aviation technology. The NanoFlowcell offers a wide range of applications as a sustainable, low cost and environmentally-friendly source of energy.”

The company provides extensive background material on its website and I suggest downloading the press kit to anyone with a keener interest.

The company’s homepage also features an incredible video of the vehicle. If you decide to watch the video you will likely want this to be real as much as I do.

Unfortunately, this is where the problems start.

While the video suggests that the car will run more or less on salt water, reality is somewhat different. LaVecchia is quoted on the website as saying that “newly developed electrolytic fluids made of exacting combinations of specific metallic salts at very high concentration” are employed. No details are given, no patents were granted, and all of the vehicle’s specifications and performance data have yet to be verified. They do seem optimistic relative to other supercars around that struggle with power-to-weight ratios or the limitations of electric motors, but we won’t know that until the car is finally in the hands of drivers capable of testing its limits. LaVecchia promises “four more drivable prototypes in 2014” which – remembering what Tesla went through to produce just one car - seems like a herculean undertaking.

There is some doubt and criticism about LaVecchia who, in 2009, already presented a “revolutionary” solar vehicle with Koenigsegg, a manufacturer of supercars from Denmark who at some point made a bid to buy SAAB. The car never made it to production.

However, flow cells are indeed proven although there is no solid proof just yet that the QUANT e actually works and performs as advertised, we should give its inventors the benefit of doubt. If nothing else, they have given the world an amazingly designed car.
PEACE, PEACE...BUT THERE IS NO PEACE!

Yeah, big oil isn't just going to sit by and let this take over their industry.

Either they sell out or they are targeted for mass recalls or they get sabotaged.

Perhaps big oil will buy the rights to seawater and you'l have to pay for seawater at the pump.


Water power car is a good idea.
