Here’s a great looking new German all-electric car that was introduced at the March 2014 Geneva Auto Show. It’s a “research” car, not for sale, but an interesting preview of a possible future application of this battery technology in production cars. The flow cell battery capacity in the e-Sportlimousine is reported to be 120 kWh. Compare this to current all-electric cars using lithium-ion battery technology: the Tesla Model S has an 85 kWh battery and a Nissan Leaf has a 24 kWh battery.
Check out the article on the e-Sportlimousine at the following link, which includes two short videos:
See many more details on this car and power system at the following nanoFLOWCELL AG YouTube site:
A 2014 press release from NanoFLOWCELL AG describes their battery technology and it’s operational use in the e-Sportlimousine, including a description of the power train and how the car is refueled. See the following link:
Regarding the nano-network technology, Wikipedia reports: “In August 2014, the Quant e-Sportlimousine was approved for testing on public roads using the nanoFLOWCELL® system with a claimed energy or power density of 600 Wh per kilogram (per litre of salt water electrolyte).”
