Development progress in flow cell technology allows for extreme performance (>560 kW) for the very first time from a low-voltage architecture (up to 48 V). The surface of the flow cell’s membrane structure had been nanotechnically optimised for increased reactive surface, without significantly changing the overall dimension of the nanoFlowcell®. Additionally, the QUANT 48VOLTS has six flow cells working simultaneously to generate more drive power by maximise discharging capacity for bi-ION electrolytes.
The drive engines are a complete new development. Other than traditional electric motors with copper winding, QUANT’s innovative 45-phase, 140 kW strong low voltage drive motors have a solid stator structure made of light alloy. Motors become lighter, more compact and more economical. Additionally, they provide the electric sports sedan with tremendous acceleration, reaching is electronically limited top speed of 300 km/h speed with playful easiness and without acceleration gaps. Drivable range can be expected to be more than 1,000 kilometres – a plus of 25 percent compared to the QUANT FE with high-voltage drive system.
A unique VCU controls the complex electric powertrain and regulates the drive current. Depending on drive modus and the respective power requirements, the VCU switches on or off three of the six flow cells in the nanoFlowcell® 48VOLT drive system of QUANT 48VOLT.
QUANT 48VOLT not only meets arguments of those who are sceptical a about performance of electric cars, but also those who worry about electrical safety. With the implementation of a low voltage drive system, the QUANT 48VOLT becomes the electrically safest EV on the market today.
