The Salt-water powered car


Nanoflowcell have announced, that they have been finally given the green light to test drive their salt-water powered electric car, on European Roads.

The Quant e-Sportlimousine has been in development for the past 14 years, and uses a new energy storage system, called, the Nanoflowcell. The engine uses a salt water solution, that manages to produce an electro- chemical reaction, which in turn creates electricity, that is transferred to super-capacitors, which power the car.


The car measures just over 5 meters in length, and features suicide doors, perfectly matching the exotic styling. The car is capable of speeds up to 350 Km per hour, and an acceleration of 0-100 km in just 2.8 seconds.

A full tank of fuel (200 litres of Salt water solution) will give you a 600 km range. This means that the total energy contained in 1 litre of salt water solution, is 400 times more than that of a lead-acid battery, found in conventional technologies.


This prototype is still in the early stages of testing, but the green light in the EU was a milestone, for this small company, who see a very bright future for the automotive industry and sustainable energy.
