Swedish supercar manufacturer Koenigsegg partnered with German firm NLV Solar AG on the Quant by Koenigsegg, shown at the Geneva Motor Show in 2009. This year the Quant returns to Geneva but under the auspices of a company called nanoFLOWCell, lead by the same Nunzio La Vecchia of NLV Solar. NanoFlowcell, a company based in Lichtenstein, says that the QUANT e-Sportlimousine utilizes four electric motors, one for each wheel, that give out a combined maximum output of 680kW and a normal operating output of 480kW. The 912 horsepower working prototype is powered by a flow cell battery. According to the manufacturers, the Quant boasts a 5-times greater performance than most other electric cars run on lithium-ion technology. It is able to reach (96.5 kph) 60 mph in 2.8 seconds, and a top speed f 236 mph (379 kph)

Discovery at the Large Hadron Collider

Discovery at the Large Hadron Collider

Share/Bookmark

The Large Hadron Collider is the world’s largest and highest-energy particle accelerator. It was built by the European Organization for Nuclear Research over a ten year period from 1998 to 2008. It is a located near Geneva, where it spans the border between Switzerland and France about 100m underground. It is a particle accelerator for studying the smallest known particles. Two beams of subatomic particles called hadrons travel in opposite directions inside the circular accelerator, gaining energy with every lap. Physicists use the LHC to recreate the conditions just after the Big Bang, by colliding the two beams head-on at very high energy. LHC discovered its first new particle. It is called Chi_b (3P) and will help scientists understand better the forces that hold matter together.

New Toyota Yaris HSD Concept

Share/Bookmark

Toyota revealed a range of new models at the 2011 Geneva motor show, including full hybrid Yaris HSD concept. Yaris HSD is a typical city car, with an emphasis on low fuel consumption and low emissions. Like all other hybrid models of Japanese brands, the Yaris will be able to run solely on electricity. Roof of concept is covered with solar panels, which could improve the performance of the hybrid system. The independent panels power the air conditioning system in the concept. Design is almost identical with the serial model. While the exterior design of the European version will be completely identical with the Japanese, the interior will be diametrically different. We expect hybrid version of yaris in market in the second half of 2012.
