nanoFlowcell will present a production-ready Quantino at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show

You must have already read our nice article about Quant E, Quant F and the smaller Quantino, developed by nanoFlowcell. If you have not, it is never late to catch up with the story. Especially when nanoFlowcell announces it is ready to produce the Quantino, as it has done today.

According to the company, the Quantino will be presented at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show ready for mass-production. It has been completely revised, what means to say its engines for the production version will be weaker than the ones presented by the concept. Instead of 4 electric engines with 25 kW each, the production Quantino will have engines able to generate 20 kW, or 20 kW less in total.

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. There is still no word on such production version figures. Only that nanoFlowcell is considering a small-batch run of it, as well as of the Quant F Evolution.

QUANT-FE

No changes affect the Quant F. It is still a 801 kW, 800 km of range car, with a peak voltage of 735V and a top speed of more than 300 km/h. 0 to 100 km/h acceleration takes only 2.8 s. The sole change the Quant F has received to become the F Evolution is in its interior, in order for an easier homologation. Small production runs are normally followed by huge price tags. Let’s see if nanoFlowcell thinks it is feasible to do so with these two cars.
