“The demand for zero-emission commercial vehicles has increased dramatically over the past six months. At QUANTRON alone, we have responded to over 500 customer inquiries across Europe with concrete offers,” says Michael Perschke, CEO of Quantron AG. “In Germany, however, the market is blocked by the current financing practice. After the second call for financial aid for commercial vehicles with alternative propulsion was extended once again until August 24, companies and municipalities are waiting to place their orders in order to be certain of the amount of financial assistance.The current financing practice therefore acts as a barrier to investment and postpones purchasing decisions and therefore also the effects of reducing costs. emissions until 2023,” continues Perschke.
As a result, QUANTRON does not expect a significant increase in sales before 2023, partly due to the heavyweight offensive with the BEV and FCEV drive concepts. Despite these obstacles and the geopolitical challenges, the company’s management is confident that it can achieve the 2022 objective of 20 to 25 million euros.
Full product pipeline
In addition to converting used or new commercial vehicles into emission-free drives, QUANTRON develops its own commercial vehicles as OEMs which are attracting great interest in the market due to their short-term availability and the technology used in the manufacturing.
In the region of passenger transport the QUANTRON CIZARIS 12 EV is attracting international interest. The all-electric bus is already available in the north and south Europeand will also be available in different versions for the DACH region from January 2023 From. The excellent consumption values combined with high performance can be seen in a range of up to 370 km (according to SORT 2) which can be achieved thanks to proven vehicle technology and LFP4 batteries from the world’s leading battery manufacturer, CATL . The FCEV model is currently under development and certification
In the freight transport sector, QUANTRON offers the in-house developed fully electric light carrier QUANTRON QARGO 4 EV. With a range of up to 350 km and a payload capacity of 2,300 kg, the zero-emission vehicle is ideal for last-mile deliveries.
While QUANTRON offers fully electric vehicles for inner-city or short-haul use, the company relies on green hydrogen as the most efficient fuel solution for long-haul and heavy-duty operations with payloads. high. In cooperation with Ballard Power Systems, a world leader in the development of fuel cells, several hydrogen vehicles have been developed, including a heavy-duty FCEV (40-60 t) which will have its world premiere at IAA Transportation in September.
As part of its hydrogen offensive, QUANTRON is further extending its Quantron-as-a-Service (QaaS) ecosystem to 360 degrees. In the future, QUANTRON wants to orchestrate the production of green hydrogen and sustainable electricity and cooperate with hydrogen filling stations and charging options, thereby significantly increasing customer acceptance for this vehicle class.
The QUANTRON team has also grown alongside economic development in the first six months of this year. The company, founded in 2019, now has a workforce of more than 110 employees of 14 nationalities, including North America, Middle East and Asia. More than 50% of them work in technical and product R&D.
In the run-up to the IAA, Quantron is working on new strategic partnerships to establish itself as a key European player in the hydrogen economy in the transport sector.
