Salt water isn’t just for taffy.
The all-electric Quant e-sports sedan prototype is powered by flow cells that use salt water to generate electricity.
It has 4 motors, weighs over 5,000 pounds, generates 920 horsepower that give it an estimated 0-62 mph time in faster than you can finish this sentence. 2.8 seconds. Same as a Lamborghini Murcielago or a Koenigsegg Agera. Torque is allegedly equivalent to 2,139 pound-feet per wheel.
Though it’s still in lab testing, the Quant has been approved for road use in Germany and Europe.
