Quantino receives road license and can now be driven on regular streets

nanoFlowCell has announced recently it would present a production ready version of Quantino, its entry-level car, at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. Now the company informs that the car has received its road license. In other words, now it can use license plates, as the ones it uses in the image above, and be driven in regular streets and roads along Europe.

The Quantino is a low-voltage car (48V), what makes it cheaper than the other models of the company. In its older configuration, with two 175 l tanks, or the 350 l of ionic liquids, the Quantino would be able to reach a range of 1,000 km, with a top speed of 200 km/h. The production car keeps such numbers, but has weaker engines. Instead of one 25 kW unit at each wheel, it uses 20 kW engines.

nanoFlowcell said it is considering a small-batch run of the Quantino, as well as of the Quant F Evolution. Even if it is expensive, it will be good to see a new technology trying to make its way to feasibility.
