Quantron fuel cell trucks, namely the heavy-duty truck Quantron QHM FCEV and the light-duty truck Quantron QLI FCEV, are now ready for delivery. Both trucks are equipped with high-performance FCmove fuel cell modules, designed and manufactured by Canadian specialist Ballard Power System. The latter is also an investor in the Quantron project.

Since the announcement of the strategic cooperation in September 2021, the two companies have launched industry-leading developments. A notable feature of QUANTRON’s intelligent design is the complete integration of all fuel cell components into the frame structure of the QUANTRON QHM FCEV and the QLI FCEV, which means that no compromises have to be made in terms of trailer length and payload. According to Quantron, an European customer already took delivery of the first five units with one unit having accomplished 15.000 km in daily operations in a trial with the customer.

“We take immense pride in our accomplishment, having jointly developed market-ready FCEV vehicles. Both Ballard and QUANTRON mastered this in record time. This is not only first to market in the 7.5 t FCEV light vehicle segment, but we take the lead in the fuel cell technology market. We have an order and offer pipeline of up to 100 units”, commented Michael Perschke, CEO of Quantron AG.
