Nanoflowcell gives alternative energy some sexy flow with Quant F and Quantino

By - March 10, 2015 23 Pictures
Building upon the groundwork it laid at last year's Geneva Motor Show, Liechtenstein's Nanoflowcell used this year's show to highlight two very different ways that its flow battery technology can be put to use. The Quant F is a full-blown hypercar, using its fluidic battery to send more than 1,000 horses marching out onto the track. The Quantino, meanwhile, uses Nanoflowcell technology for more humble purposes: up to 620 miles (1,000 km) of zero emissions commuting. Read More

Bentley explores new territory with EXP 10 Speed 6 concept

By - March 5, 2015 23 Pictures
With the Bugatti 16C Galibier a distant memory, the Continental GT from VW sibling Bentley remains the pinnacle of supercar-level performance blended masterfully with ultra-premium grand touring elegance. But what if you sacrificed two seats of that touring luxury for more all-out, track-painting performance?

Kia makes the station wagon look good with Sportspace concept

By - March 3, 2015 24 Pictures
After previewing the intriguing Sportspace concept last month, Kia has tugged the cloth to the ground, turned the bright lights on and put the details in writing. The concept car houses a punchy but efficient turbo powertrain in a body that finds a comfortable niche between shooting brake and full-sized wagon. In other words, it's a sports car with space, a Sportspace. Read More

Weinsberg CaraKids concept campers make RVs feel like children's forts

By - February 27, 2015 43 Pictures
Recreational vehicle camping is a timeless family vacation tradition that provides a fun, memorable and affordable form of travel. While families with children make up a key demographic of the RV industry, that industry focuses its design and features overwhelmingly on adults. Features like illuminated wine cabinets and slide-out espresso machines do little to make the trip better for junior (though we guess they do keep mom and dad jovial). Sure the adults are the ones buying the RV, but as any parent knows, keeping the little ones happy during the trip is priority number one. The CaraKids motorhome and caravan design studies from Weinsberg were constructed from start to finish with children in mind, and they feature a number of smart details that promise to make RV camping more fun and convenient for the smallest campers and, thereby, the adults, too.

Smaller, flow cell-powered Quantino concept offers 620-mile range

By - February 18, 2015 2 Pictures
Before it detailed the 1,075-hp Quant F supercar, Nanoflowcell mentioned that it would have another surprise highlight at the Geneva Motor Show. Turns out, the surprise is an entirely new concept car that it calls the Quantino. Unlike the Quant, which focuses on out-and-out performance, the small Quantino hatchback puts Nanoflowcell's flow battery to use in daily commuting-type efficiency. The company believes that the car can travel up to 620 miles (1,000 km) on a single fill-up of ionic fluids. Read More

By - February 16, 2015 79 Pictures
While the Chicago Auto Show is always eager to advertise its claim of being the largest auto show in the United States (by square footage), it usually takes a back seat to the likes of Detroit, New York and LA when it comes to important, exciting product and concept debuts.
