QUANTiNO is the world’s first low-voltage EV with road licence nanoFlowcell ® drive enables ranges of more than 1,000 km nanoFlowcell ® uses ecologically harmless ionic liquids for zero-emissions electricity production Schaan/Lichtenstein, 10 February 2016 – As announced by nanoFlowcell AG, the latest scion of the QUANT model range, the QUANTiNO, has recently been licensed for road use by the SGS-TÜV Saar. Presented in early 2015 at the Geneva International Motor Show as a concept vehicle, the QUANTiNO is now the second vehicle with nanoFlowcell® technology, alongside the QUANT-E, with official permission to drive on European roads. Its unique feature is the nanoFlowcell® drive – the answer to the long-term need for alternative fuels – with which nanoFlowcell AG is paving the way for future mobility that is both clean and safe. Measuring 3.91 metres long and weighing in at 1420 kilograms, the 2+2-seater is also notable for its low-voltage electrical system. The electric drive in the QUANTiNO has a rated voltage of just 48 volts, yet generates 80 kW / 108 hp and accelerates the city sports car for everyday use from zero to 100 km/h in less than five seconds. The top speed of the nanoFlowcell® vehicle is 200 km/h. The low-voltage system in the QUANTiNO works with the nanoFlowcell® drive to form an exceptionally efficient symbiosis that promises a significantly greater potential range compared with the HV systems commonly used in electric vehicles. Furthermore, it eliminates the danger of electric shocks that can be caused by a high-voltage system in the event of an accident or when undertaking repair work to HV components. The innovative nanoFlowcell® vehicle runs with absolutely no emissions. The ionic liquid, which is harmless to the environment and to health, is also cost-effective to produce. Under normal driving conditions, the QUANTiNO can cover a theoretical range of more than 1,000 kilometres on a single tank. Precise range figures will be determined during test driving to be conducted on European roads in 2016.

    dynamic driving fun and a whisper-quiet soundtrack. Likewise, filling up the QUANTiNO with ionic liquid involves a process similar to that for a petrol-powered vehicle with a hose and a refuelling nozzle. nanoFlowcell AG will present further details on the QUANTiNO and other nanoFlowcell technology showcases in Hall 1 of this years Geneva International Motor Show from 1 to 13 March. About nanoFlowcell AG Established towards the end of 2013, nanoFlowcell AG is an innovative research and development company headquartered in Lichtenstein. The focus of the research work performed by nanoFlowcell AG is on flow cell powertrain systems. Aside from further developing its QUANT range of vehicles, the company is also investigating possible applications of its nanoFlowcell technology in other sectors and industries. To this end, two companies were founded in 2014, nanoProduction GmbH and nanoResearch SA, both wholly owned subsidiaries of nanoFlowcell AG.
