Making its debut at the show this year is La Vecchia's Quant e-Sportlimousine, whose power system is somewhere in between the two--using a technology known as flow cells. It features a powertrain developed by nanoFLOWCELL, a German company with technical ties to Bosch. Breaking it down to simple characteristics, flow cells are like batteries, but share aspects of electrochemical accumulator cells with those of fuel cells.

912 horsepower QUANT e-sportlimousine runs exclusively on salt water thanks to nanoFLOWCELL® revolutionary powertrain technology.
