Nanoflowcell has developed the world’s first electric car powered by salt water named the Quant e-Sportlimousine. This vehicle has now been approved for testing on roads in Germany and Europe. The car is designed to run on a special type of gasoline that is made from salt water.

The futuristic gull-wing vehicle is four seated and measures roughly 5.25 meters in length. The Quant e-Sportlimousine is capable of speeds of 350 kmph and acceleration of 100 kmph in just 2.8 seconds and can travel a distance of 600 kms with full tank of petrol made from salt water.

The concept of the car is that an electrochemical reaction is created by combining two liquids with metallic salts that act as an electrolyte. These solutions are then sent to a fuel cell, creating electricity that is stored in super capacitors and sent to the the Quant e-Sportlimousine’s four electric motors. One litre of the salty liquid contains 400 times more energy than a typical lead-acid battery, and the prototype car carries two 200-litre tanks on board. Nanoflowcell has now joined hands with Bosch Engineering to further develop the technology, and the company hopes to release more prototypes in the future.
