Η NanoFlowcell στην περσινή έκθεση της Γενεύης παρουσίασε το Quantino Study, ένα πρωτότυπο ηλεκτρικό αυτοκίνητο για όλους, όπως χαρακτηριστικά το περιέγραφε η εταιρία από το Λιχτενστάιν. Σήμερα η εταιρία μας δείχνει το “σχεδόν παραγωγής” QUANTiNO, που θα φέρει στην ελβετική έκθεση αύριο, με την εταιρία να αναφέρει πως έχει λάβει άδεια για χρήση του οδικού δικτύου στην Ευρώπη.

Το υδρογονοκίνητο QUANTiNO έχει υποβληθεί σε δοκιμή αντοχής 14 ωρών χωρίς ανεφοδιασμό, με την εταιρία να έχει ως στόχο να ελέγξει την καταλληλότητα του συστήματος του αυτοκινήτου σε καθημερινή χρήση και υπό πραγματικές συνθήκες ζωής, όπως και την ακεραιότητα του συστήματος υπό συνεχή φορτίο, με τη δοκιμή να έγινε κατά κύριο λόγο σε αστικό κύκλο σε ταχύτητες μέχρι 74 χλμ/ώρα.

Το σπορ αυτοκίνητο διατηρεί τον 2+2 χαρακτήρα του, με το μήκος του να είναι όπως και του πρωτότυπο, 3,91 μέτρα. Εφοδιάζεται με τέσσερις ηλεκτροκινητήρες με συνολική απόδοση 109 ίππους, με τα 0-100 χλμ/ώρα να τα κάνει σε λιγότερο από 5 δευτερόλεπτα και η μέγιστη ταχύτητα να φτάνει τα 200 χλμ/ώρα, με την αυτονομία του να ξεπερνάει τα 1.000 χλμ.

nanoFlowcell AG on record-breaking run: QUANTiNO passes first endurance test

  • nanoFlowcell® passes first endurance test under real-life conditions
  • QUANTiNO with nanoFlowcell® goes for 14 hours non-stop in urban cycle mode – a record for an electric car
  • The nanoFlowcell® powertrain uses environmentally friendly electrolytes to generate electricity with no harmful emissions

Zurich, 23 February 2016 – Having just obtained its license for road use in Europe, the remarkable QUANTiNO sports car with flow cell technology was immediately put through its paces. The nanoFlowcell AG development team headed by Chief Technology Officer Nunzio La Vecchia subjected the QUANTiNO to a 14-hour endurance test. The aim of the non-stop drive was to test the suitability of the nanoFlowcell® system for everyday use and its system integrity under continuous load. The test drive was done predominantly in urban cycle mode at speeds of up to 74 km/h.

After a number of initial short factory runs during the coordination phase, La Vecchia took the QUANTiNO to a test center near Zurich. He wanted to make sure that the nanoFlowcell® system met his expectations of producing environmentally friendly energy that could power the car over a range currently beyond even the most efficient electric vehicles. Head developer La Vecchia could not resist the opportunity to be the test driver of the QUANTiNO for the endurance test. Supervised by a lawyer, the QUANTiNO traveled for 14 hours non-stop without refueling

On the 14-hour test drive, the QUANTiNO would theoretically – and under real-life conditions – have left most other electric cars standing after a maximum of three hours – a driving performance made possible by the ultra-efficient nanoFlowcell® powertrain and the use of proprietary electrolyte fluids.

“The car could have gone further, but unlike the nanoFlowcell®, I have my limits,” said Nunzio La Vecchia, as he drove the car back into the pits following his 14-hour stint behind the wheel. “We are proud that we have been able to prove the performance potential of the QUANTiNO not just under laboratory conditions, but also in an everyday situation,” he said. “This test drive demonstrates that our nanoFlowcell® technology offers a concrete, long-term alternative for meeting the demand for alternative fuels. nanoFlowcell AG is paving the way for clean and safe mobility in the coming decades.”

As the first low-voltage vehicle with a nanoFlowcell® powertrain approved for road use, the QUANTiNO offers some pretty impressive performance stats. In addition to acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h (approx. 62.5 mph) in under 5 seconds and a maximum speed of 200 km/h (approx. 125 mph), it also delivers incomparable driving pleasure.
