QUANTRON launches electric 12 m bus

E-mobility specialist Quantron AG is launching its own QUANTRON vehicle, the
electric QUANTRON 12 m low-floor bus, at the end of this year. The city bus
will be offered in two versions: In the BEV variant, the vehicle can be
ordered as early as the end of 2021, as an FCEV from spring 2022. Unique:
the emission-free BEV-bus is in a similar price range to conventional diesel
buses.

The vehicle is offered in close cooperation with QUANTRON investor and
strategic partner Ev Dynamics, a European-Asian consortium of companies
specialising in electric and hydrogen-based mobility. Both the batteries
(CATL) and the fuel cells (Ballard Power) come from the world’s leading
manufacturers of the respective technologies.

Miguel Valldecabres Polop, CEO of Ev Dynamics, explains: “Several thousand
buses have already been produced. These have been operating successfully in
Asia for years.”

With fully electric drive, the bus achieves a maximum output of 250 kW. The
range is up to 280 km, making the vehicle ideal for daily urban use. The
charging power is up to 80 kW with a battery capacity of up to 422 kWh. The
battery is charged via a European standard plug CCS 2 within 3 to 6 hours
depending on the battery size. This means for example, that the city bus is
fully operational after overnight charging. The battery system is adapted to
the respective operational requirements and is compatible with various
charging solutions. The bus has a capacity for up to 95 passengers. The
equipment for optimum passenger and driver comfort as well as the interior
and exterior design are available in a wide range of specifications and
style to meet individual customer requirements.
