The cooperation between Quantron and IKEA is expected to continue. Currently, 56 QUANTRON battery-electric vehicles are already in operation in Austria. Now, five more Quantron QLI FCEV models will be added to the company’s zero-emission fleet. Additionally, the transporters will be fueled with green hydrogen from energy supplier Wien Energie.
Quantron Inside technology offers a user-friendly complete package with innovative e-axle, customized high-performance battery, fuel cell and tank system integration, and unique energy management and aerodynamics for maximum efficiency. One tank of fuel is sufficient for a range of up to 400 km.
Statements from IKEA and QUANTRON
“By introducing the hydrogen trucks – as the first IKEA market worldwide – we succeed in Austria in taking a big step in implementing environmentally friendly processes. In this way, as a pioneer in the field of sustainable logistics, we want to show that a transformation to zero-emission delivery is already possible today”, said Alpaslan Deliloglu, CEO and Chief Sustainability Officer at IKEA Austria.
“We are delighted that our long-standing collaboration with IKEA has reached another level with the launch of a new generation of innovative QUANTRON products. The QLI FCEV is the first H2 vehicle in the fuel cell commercial vehicle segment up to 7.5 t in Europe and the market leader in fuel cell technology in this class. We have been supporting IKEA Austria on its mission of decarbonization since August 2021. IKEA Austria has 45 QLI BEV trucks in use in the greater Vienna area and a further eleven in other Austrian cities”, added Andreas Haller, founder and Executive Chairman of Quantron AG.
