This particular car has a horsepower of 920 and makes use of electrolyte flow cell power system for running four electric motors that are housed within it. It works in the same fashion as a hydrogen fuel cell, however saltwater is used as the liquid for storing energy.

This saltwater is made to pass through a membrane located between two tanks, thus creating an electric charge. This electric charge is stored and distributed by employing super capacitors. It features two 200-liter tanks that allow the user to travel a total of 600km in one ride.Quant e-Sportlimousine Runs On Salt Water And Is As Fast As McLaren P1 5

  1. Nobody seems to have ever seen what is actually in the car. No picture of the flowcell and / or the driveline in these cars anywhere. Not of the FlowCell, not of the tanks, not of even of the electromotors.

    I have never ever heard of any independent magazine that was allowed to have a real look at the car or even open the trunk / frunk. Please journalists, do your job. I get the impression that all I read about this company are reprints of press-releases.

    I am not impressed by the fact that these cars got approved to use the roads, as long as I do not see documents proving that the car that car approval was based on a car having a Flowcell and tanks as powerline. It could have simply been an EV with small battery that got approval.

    I spend a lot of time googling around, however have not seen any documented proof of the promised specifications anywhere.

    Next to that the guy behind this company has been involved and in court over other scam’s. Where it was proven he indeed was scamming investors with lies to get access to their funds. So he does NOT have the benefit of the doubt in this.

  2. The company is based in Vaduz, Liechtenstein. That is not a part of Germany, but an independent country! Liechtenstein does not even neighbour Germany, it is included by Austria and Swiss.
