During the Q-Days held last week, Quantron introduced a significant innovation in its Q-Heavy line made of zero-emission heavy-duty solutions. The German specialist presented the all-electric Quantron QHD BEV 50-280 as 4×2 tractor unit based on the DAF CF Space Cab. The zero-emission vehicle features a low-noise and therefore particularly pleasant driving style as well as having an operating range of up to 220 km and a maximum engine performance of 350 kW. The 280 kWh battery can be fully re-charged within 6.5 hours at 150 kW maximum charging capacity.
