Amazing, I just saw Tesla Roadster can now do 544km on a charge, but check out this one:
nanoFLOWCELL will present its new QUANT F electric vehicle at the upcoming Geneva Autosalon. The latest iteration of the QUANT features four electric motors and a 2-speed automatic transmission. It achieves a top speed of 300 km/hr, and a range of 800 km.

SJOE!! Awesome! Looks like the guys are thinking a bit out of the box here. Not too shabby body styling either! Better sit down for the price tag on this one, I think.
When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.

OK, seems like a "flow" battery system is the latest.
Here is another car using that system.

Liechtenstein-based nanoFlowcell AG has taken a different approach to battery design. Its vehicles use a flow battery system which works like a combination of a battery and a fuel cell, using liquid electrolytes kept in two tanks and pumped through the cell. At the heart of the system is a membrane that separates two differing chemistries. A controlled exchange of charges releases energy for the electric powertrain.

The company claims that a large increase in the number of charge carriers in the electrolyte fluid significantly increases its performance compared to conventional redox flow-cells, which radically increases the concentration of energy compared to conventional, terrestrial flow cell systems, like those used in domestic residences.

The system functions as long as sufficient electrolytic fluid is present in the tanks. Once the reserve is used up, the contents of both tanks must to be replaced. The refueling process is no more complicated than filling up a gasoline powered vehicle, according to nanoFlowcell AG.
