It works just like a hydrogen fuel cell except that the liquid used for storing energy is saltwater. This isn’t far from the water powered car, an idea labelled as a conspiracy by many despite the massive amount of evidence behind it. You can read more about that here.
In this case (saltwater) 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 four electric motors in the car are fed electricity which makes it run. The car carries the water in two 200-litre tanks, which in one sitting will allow drivers to travel up to 373 miles (600km). Overall, the four-seater is 5.25 metres (0.4ft) long, 2.2 metres wide (7.2ft), the 1.35 metre (4.4ft).
“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.” (source)
Nanoflowcell AG is the company behind the design, and they are currently preparing the technology for mass production.
‘We’ve got major plans, and not just within the automobile industry. The potential of the NanoFlowcell is much greater, especially in terms of domestic energy supplies as well as in maritime, rail and aviation technology” – NanoFlowcell AG Chairman of the Board Professor Jens-Peter Ellermann.
Less than two months after a self-driving Uber vehicle struck and killed a pedestrian in Tempe, Arizona; local news stations are reporting that a Waymo minivan in autonomous mode was involved in a crash in Chandler, Arizona.
The rising cost of commodities, combined with the end of a bubble in the automobile sector, are taking tolls on automobile companies and forcing drastic restructurings at major US automakers like Ford.

These are the lots where Volkswagen is storing the hundreds of thousands of diesel vehicles that included software to help them cheat US emissions testing as the company races to buyback a huge chunk of its inventory ahead of a deadline agreed to as part of its settlement with the US government, per Reuters.
Under the terms of its landmark settlement with the US government, if 85% of the 500,000 cars VW promised to repurchase haven’t been bought back or fixed by then, the company will face higher punitive payments.
…which will ‘accidentally’ be the (only) cars which will work BEST during and after the coming crisis!
You can run many diesel cars on heating oil (((even vegetable oil))) for a loooooooong time, when adding a little low-soot 2-stroke oil/engine oil for the longevity of the motor (this will also reduce fuel consumption), when all gas stations will be closed.
The mix should be 200 : 1.
And TPTB know this, which is why they’ve created all that hype about diesel cars in the first place!!!
Diesel-powered cars in Europe are losing their momentum.
Statista’s Raynor de Best notes that, according to the latest numbers from the European Automobile Manufacturers Association (ACEA), diesel’s market share decreased to 45.7 percent of total car registrations in the EU-15. Diesel sales traditionally were higher than in the U.S., due to a 30 percent tax advantage. Consumer confidence, however, is decreasing following the Volkwagen Group’s emission-cheating scandal, tightening European emission standards and a potential ban from city centers.
According to the ACEA, diesel’s penetration decreased in all countries, particularly in Austria, Greece, Luxembourg and Spain.
The market share in Germany, traditionally regarded as a country fond of diesel technology, reached 40.4 percent between January and September 2017, a decrease of 6.1 percent. France’s market share fell below 50 percent (47.8 percent, a decrease of 4.7 percent) for the first time in years. Ireland remains the country with the highest diesel market share (65.4 percent), followed by Portugal (61.4 percent) and Italy (56.5 percent).
From April 1: Online monitoring in the car – new cars must be equipped with eSIM cards
From 1 April 2018 all new cars must be equipped with eSIM cards. A new car turns into a rolling data center … and in 2015, Jim Farley, vice president at Ford, said, “We know every driver who breaks traffic rules, and because GPS is in the cars, we know where and how someone does it . “
From 1 April, all new cars must be equipped with electronic SIM cards. Behind this is the good intention to be reached faster in case of accidents by the rescue services.
On March 23, a 38-year-old man driving a Tesla Model X rammed headfirst into an unshielded highway median while traveling south on U.S. Highway 101 near Mountain View, California. Two other vehicles subsequently rear-ended the SUV, which caught fire after the driver, who later died from his injuries, was pulled from the wreckage.
According to news reports, the car blaze shut the highway for 5 hours, firefighters required special suits for cleanup, and at one point had to call Tesla for help in containing the blaze. On Tuesday (March 27), the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) announced a field investigation into the incident.
