At the 2016 Geneva International Motor Show, nanoFlowcell AG is premiering the first street-legal low-voltage EV of the QUANT series, the QUANTiNO with nanoFlowcell powertrain, introduced as a "near production standard" configuration.

The company from Lichtenstein is debuting two prototypes with successfully completed pre-production tests. 

Quantino already appeared in Geneva a year ago as a concept vehicle, but it has been since noticeably revised and improved in terms of its low-voltage fuel cells performance. To produce electricity, the cells require only 48 volts, while developing a solid output of 80 kW, split between four electric motors. According to the company, production of the modular-designed QUANTiNO in a small-batch run is essentially possible with a feasibility study due this year to provide the basis for the final decision.

The second model, the QUANT FE, is quite a different breed, being a thoroughbred sports coupé with a 2+2 design. With its 801 kW output, the electric street racer is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.8 seconds. What's more, the energy required for such a blast is produced by the onboard power plant in a sustainable and toxicologically completely harmless process.

Quant FE is a development stage in the evolution of last year's Quant F concept. The E in the name QUANT FE stands for Evolution, indicating that the vehicle has been developed to near-series maturity. A lot of attention was given to the interior of the QUANT FE, completely re-imagining the ergonomically-minded interior design to meet homologation requirements.
