QUANTRON and ETO Motors to join forces
More into details, QUANTRON will be appointed as the sole sales and service partner for Europe for all jointly developed ETO three-wheeler vehicles for the ultra-last-mile. ETO will be the sole distributor for all QUANTRON vehicles and technologies in the territory. QUANTRON will also provide ETO access to its existing retrofitment kits for converting internal combustion engines to electric vehicles and assist ETO in designing and developing Indian versions of those kits, with Indian pricing and Indian licensing and approvals.
The key task is for ETO and QUANTRON is to develop BEV and possibly FCEV conversion kits for applications targeting a global market: trucks, buses or even trains (for FCEV), depending on cost and feasibility. The collaboration also aims to introduce H2 technology vehicles and infrastructure (such as tanks, dispensers and electrolyzers) through collaboration or import/export of technology between the countries.
