Vehicle presentation at the exhibition stand QUANTRON QARGO 4 EV and QUANTRON QHM-BEV 28-350
With its product portfolio of BEV and FCEV vehicles ranging from 3.5 to 44 tonnes, QUANTRON has the most comprehensive range of emission-free vehicles on the market. Visitors to Transport Logistic can inspect two of them from the light and heavy segments at first hand directly on the QUANTRON stand (Hall A6, Stand 103/204).
As a battery-electric truck in the class up to 4.2t, the QUANTRON QARGO 4 EV is designed for last mile deliveries with emission-free and quiet operability. This makes it the ideal vehicle for evening and night time delivery as well as urban zero-emission zones. It can be flexibly adapted to suit individual requirements through the use of various bodies und configurations. The QUANTRON QARGO 4 EV was selected by a customer in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to be the first electric truck to facilitate clean transport on the country's roads.
The heavy-duty model, QUANTRON QHM-BEV 28-350 is a 6x2 truck for swap body use. It has a battery with 350kWh, which allows a range of 250 km and can be fast charged with up to 350kW (CCS standard). The vehicle features two different loading heights for the swap bodies for maximum versatility. For the most flexible customer operations, the truck is also equipped with a low coupling for trailer operation. The heavy 6x2 truck has a sleeper cabin and is thus suitable for long-distance transport.
Creating a digital platform for Quantron-as-a-Service
For the first time at the Transport Logistic, QUANTRON is presenting the digital platform for its QaaS and will be demonstrating the user interface that every QaaS customer can use.
Together with the IT service company, Goldstone Technologies Limited (GTL), QUANTRON has developed the innovative technology that has facilitated the realisation of the digital platform for QUANTRON's 360° ecosystem, Quantron-as-a-Service (QaaS). For this, a contract was concluded regarding the establishment of a joint venture with branches in Augsburg and Hyderabad/India. The manufacturer-independent platform is intended to support various digital services of QaaS, including transactions such as vehicle deployment, route planning, charging or refuelling, billing with gas stations and energy consumption. Customers can also use the user front end in order to measure the performance of the zero-emission vehicle such as hydrogen consumption, kilometres driven or CO2 savings. In a first step this platform will serve Quantron AG and ETO Motors vehicles in a next step starting in Q4/2023 it will be offered as an open market solution and will be OEM agnostic.
Andreas Haller, founder and CEO of Quantron AG, will be taking part in a panel discussion during Transport Logistic on 10th May on the subject of "Decarbonisation in long-distance road transport: hydrogen truck as saviour?”. He explains: “We must act now in order to secure a future worth living. Innovative technologies such as hydrogen as a fuel for zero-emission vehicles play an important role here. At QUANTRON, we are committed to making such sustainable alternatives more accessible to customers with our unique Quantron-as-a-Service package."
