The German car company, Quant, revealed the first salt water-powered electric vehicle at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show in March of this year (2014) and is now certified for use on European public roads. They’ve called it the e-Sportlimousine.
Okay, so we don’t normally blog about supercars (well, unless it’s a Corvette.) And we are a Chevrolet dealership, in North Carolina, with one of the most famous NASCAR driver’s name on it, so it doesn’t make sense for us to be writing about exotic, million dollar cars… But we’re not opposed to giving credit where credit is due, and we do appreciate great innovative vehicle technology. And Top Gear-sy type things.
Before we get to the cool stuff, we do have one thing that we’d like to get off our chest first. There is no doubt that this car is cool. There’s no getting around it. The name that they have given it – e-Sportlimousine – WHY?! They could have given it some cool, aquatic, god-like name. Even Ozean, which is German for ocean, would be a cooler name and we just thought of that in 5 seconds. Think about this as you read on and let us know what you come up with in the comments section.
The car runs on an electrolyte flow cell system developed by NanoFlowcell. This system generates 920 horsepower that allows the vehicle to go from 0-62mph (100km/hr) in 2.8 seconds and reach a top speed of 217 mph. This article goes into much further detail.
And here is the epic video for the Quant e-SportLimousine. Enjoy and then leave your thoughts with a comment below!
