Our 360° solution – Quantron-as-a-Service – gives fleets access to a turnkey offer that includes FCEV trucks, hydrogen, hydrogen refueling stations, and a broad array of solutions. This is available on a cost-per-mile basis and designed to help customers easily and efficiently manage the complicated transition to hydrogen-powered, zero carbon fleets.
Statement by Andreas Haller,
Founder & Executive Chairman of Quantron AG:
“It’s great to see how quickly Quantron USA, Inc. has grown in recent months. There is a high demand for zero-emission trucks for transportation in the heavy truck class in the USA. Together with this talented and motivated team, we will work to bring the first hydrogen-electric QUANTRON Class 8 truck to the U.S. market later in 2023.”
Statement by Richard Haas,
CEO Quantron US, about Quantron US:
“The US heavy duty trucking industry is entering a new era of clean transportation, replacing the traditional diesel HD trucks that have dominated the industry for the past 100+ years. As businesses and transport providers look to provide clean alternatives at TCO levels in line with today’s well developed diesel ecosystem, several technologies are emerging. One of the most promising new technologies for long haul Class 8 trucking is the Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicle – which is expected to provide range, refueling times, and reliability that meets or exceeds today’s diesel fleet. We believe that BEV commercial vehicles are well positioned in adjacent segments that require less range and where charging times are more flexible. Here at Quantron US, we aim to provide a thoughtful combination of product, infrastructure and service solutions that address the real world needs of our customers.”
QUANTRON Class 8 FCEV Truck
For the successful development of our FCEV Class 8 tractor, our highly experienced supply chain team surveyed the emerging technology supply base globally for compatible components and systems. We have identified suppliers and partners with the most comprehensive and detailed development programs, the most realistic outlook for best-inclass performance, and their associated industrialization plans. Our team of experienced automotive engineering experts, in conjunction with our carefully selected supply base, are working diligently to optimize the overall performance of this vehicle.
We will continue this process of partnering and optimizing as this nascent industry segment moves forward, with the latest and most robust strategies always at the forefront of our efforts. In this way, as the ecosystem for FCEV Class 8 vehicles evolves, QUANTRON will continue to be at the leading edge as this segment develops from first technology projects today to high volume industrial production over the next decade. Being flexible and remaining on the forefront of this journey is how QUANTRON will remain a key player in the segment over the long-term.
