The third member of nanoFlowcell's QUANT salt water-powered electric car family and the successor to the nanoFlowcell QUANT F electric concept car, the nanoFlowcell QUANT FE is the top-of-the-line member of the QUANT family based on the nanoFlowcell QUANT e-Sportlimousine.

Description

Produced by the car maker nanoFlowcell, the QUANT FE is driven by four electric motors and uses two fuel tanks of electrolytic fluids, one positively charged and one negatively charged.

The flow cell is split into two halves by a membrane, with positively charged electrolyte flowing through one side and negatively charged through the other. Ion exchange takes place through the membrane, generating an electric current.

Normally, flow cells can be replenished by recharging like any other battery, or simply by replacing the fluid. The nanoFlowcell QUANT FE works differently. As it discharges, the water-based ‘ionic’ fluid electrolyte evaporates, leaving the storage tanks empty and ready for refilling. Quant cars can be refuelled at a pump using a two-pronged nozzle to fill both the ‘positive’ and ‘negative’ tanks at the same time.

Chief technical officer and inventor of the nanoFlowcell Nunzio La Vecchia says, "The ionic fluid is non-flammable and non-toxic, and there are no emissions or high pressures involved. As a result, he adds, on-board storage is straightforward and establishing a filling station network simple and relatively cheap."

The four-wheel-drive concept is claimed to produce 1075 hp (802 kW) and be capable of accelerating from 0-62 mph (100 km/h) in about 2.8 sec, a time that would place the zero-emissions vehicle alongside the fastest hypercars of today. The top speed of the car is 186 mph (300 km/h).

Interestingly, nanoFlowcell is also labeling the QUANT FE as "near-series maturity", suggesting that it too could influence a production model in the future. The car maker says the model has been completely redesigned since its 2015 launch, "with a keen eye on homologation requirements".[1]

A8A nanoFlowcell QUANT FE prices

The nanoFlowcell QUANT FE was added to the game in the Enduro Update and is the first electric Elite Car in the game and the second Class S Elite Car, after the Devel Sixteen Prototype.

The nanoFlowcell QUANT FE qualifies as a mid-range Class S car, with an unusually high starting rank of 1582 (shared with the Cadillac 16 Concept), a MAX rank of 1673 (shared with the Lamborghini Aventador SV), and a MAX+PRO rank of 1735. The QUANT FE receives +23 from Tuning Kits. Due to its upgrade rank percentages, mapping an Elite Tuning in favor of high speed actually decreases the QUANT FE's rank.

Owing to its extreme weight, the nanoFlowcell QUANT FE has various weaknesses, even as an Elite Car, but also does have a few performance advantages. The QUANT FE has a really quick acceleration, surprising given its weight of 5071 lb (2300 kg). Being one of the largest and heaviest cars in the game, the nanoFlowcell QUANT FE is the worst handling car in the game, with poor cornering and drifting capabilities. In fact, it is the heaviest electric car in the game, even more so than the Tesla Model S. Ironically, the QUANT FE's handling stat is shown to start as 1.300 Gs, unlike the Cadillac 16 Concept and Devel Sixteen, both of which correctly start as 1.100 Gs. Additionally, being a nitro-focused car, the QUANT FE's top speed isn't overly decent either. The QUANT FE's nitro efficiency of 6/12/16, on the flip side, is decent enough to warrant good performance on Tokyo.

On technical tracks like Iceland, Dubai, and Sector 8, the same cannot be said, though – the nanoFlowcell QUANT FE, as stated above, fails to handle and drift well, causing it to not take sharp corners well. Even in the hands of a skilled driver, the QUANT FE will need a lot of careful handling as making even the slightest mistake can wreck the car at the sharp turns. The QUANT FE is not suitable for use on these tracks. As with cars with poor handling, when approaching a corner that requires drifting, it is recommended to drift early.

One unique trait to the QUANT FE is that it has a very slight positive speed multiplier of 100.03%; this would later carry over to the Porsche 959.

Overall, the nanoFlowcell QUANT FE is the second fastest electric car in the game, but only in the hands of skilled drivers, due to its handling being the worst in the game. The car has no use in Time-Limited Events except for nanoFlowcell-only events and electric car-only events. In many cases, the Mercedes-Benz Silver Lightning is still a better substitute for the QUANT FE.

The QUANT FE also awards A8Tokens 200 in its Mastery Challenge 10, which is one of the only redeeming capabilities of this car alongside its contribution to the European Collection and usage in the 2 aforementioned events. Despite all that, it is considered to be one of the worst cars in the game due to its poor overall performance for its rank.

Tune-ups cost A8Credits 3,500, takes 2 hours to complete, and can be skipped for up to A8Tokens ?.

The nanoFlowcell QUANT FE costs A8Credits 1,200,000 or A8Tokens 6,500 to purchase and A8Credits 2,352,700 or A8Tokens 13,300 to max out.

The nanoFlowcell QUANT FE was also part of the 23rd Multiplayer Season, Garden Season 2 as an Elite League reward. Players who already had the QUANT FE would win A8Credits 125,000 instead.
