First time I have ever seen a reference to this. Whatever it is... Over 2,000 lb-ft torque..? And 600 kilometers drive range?

Impressive claims. But a definite lack of hard data on exactly what an "nano-Flowcell is.I'm really curious...

Pretty much a fuel-cell, though I didn't see anything about what kind of fuel it uses. If they can figure out a "battery" from which you can replenish the electrolyte and the plates rather than recharge it yourself, we'll be well on our way.

A Hydrogen fuel cell already does that, although it's not a "battery" per se.
It sounds like this is a cross between battery and fuel cell. I'd like to know more. It's one thing to say it improves on Li-Ion batteries, but that's not hard to do. I'm almost betting it's just a marketing name for a fuel cell so people think it's new technology.

From another new report:

The company's promises have been bold, to say the least. The Quant is claimed to be capable of reaching 62 mph from a standstill in just 2.8 seconds, before topping out at 217 mph -- with a respectable range of 373 miles between charges.

The drivetrain does not use traditional battery cells, instead storing energy in oppositely-charged electrolyte solutions. The fluids are then pumped through a fuel-cell stack to produce electricity for the vehicle. The technology theoretically enables the liquids to be recharged within the vehicle, or drained and replaced with pre-charged fluid.
