    Quant Limousine Concept Pioneers Flow Cell Power Unit At Geneva


    by Wochit

    Making its debut at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show show is La Vecchia's Quant e-Sportlimousine, whose power system is somewhere in between the two--using a technology known as flow cells. Breaking it down to simple characteristics, flow cells are like batteries, but share aspects of electrochemical accumulator cells with those of fuel cells. The benefits are: High charge density, high performance density, light weight. 'Flow Cells' May Let Electric Cars Recharge With Liquid Refills The upshot is five times greater performance-by-weight than current lithium-ion cells, which in turn means five times greater range than a regular battery of the same weight.
