The 920 horsepower (680 kW) Quant e-Sportlimousine, developed by Lictenstein-based NanoFlowcell, uses an electrolyte flow cell power system to power four electric motors. The liquid passes through a membrane in between the two tanks, creating an electric charge. This electricity is then stored and distributed by super capacitors. The car carries the water in two 200-litre tanks, which in one sitting will allow drivers to travel up to 373 miles (600km). Interior views of the sports car can be seen in the images after the break

Its drive system allows the 5,070lbs (2,300kg) Quant e-Sportlimousine to reach 0-60 mph (100 km/h) in 2.8s

After making its debut at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show (pictured) in March, the saltwater technology has now been certified for use on European roads. The car carries the water in two 200-litre tanks, which in one sitting will allow drivers to travel up to 373 miles (600km)

The car carries the water in two 200-litre tanks, which provide a range of up to 373 miles (600km). Inside is a full-length interactive dash, with wood-theme features and an Android-based entertainment system

NanoFlowcell AG, a Lichtenstein-based company behind the drive, is now planning to test the car on public roads in Germany and elsewhere Europe as the company prepares for series production

The saltwater technology offers five times the energy capacity of lithium-ion batteries of the same weight

'We've got major plans, and not just within the automobile industry,' says NanoFlowcell AG Chairman of the Board Professor Jens-Peter Ellermann. 'The potential of the NanoFlowcell is much greater, especially in terms of domestic energy supplies as well as in maritime, rail and aviation technology'
