We know it sounds a bit far-fetched, but did you know there is a car that does 0-62 mph in 2.8 seconds, has a top speed of 217.5 mph and runs on salt water?
The 920-horsepower supercar was debuted at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show and was approved for road use in Europe a few months ago. Called the, “Quant e-Sportlimousine,” this car works just like a hydrogen fuel cell, but the liquid that is used for energy is salt water. The water passes through two tanks and creates an electric charge. It has a 200 liter tank and is able to travel up to 373 miles. This is just one of the many alternatives that are being developed to have cleaner types of fuel for cars.
The U.S. Naval Research Lab has also developed a technology to recover carbon dioxide and hydrogen from seawater to turn into fuel. They successfully tested it on a small replica WWII plane. This technology could be commercially available in the next 7 to 10 years. With possibilities like these, where do we sign up for a test drive?
