The city of Meersburg, in Baden-Württemberg, Germany, has acquired and all-electric Quantron Q-Light van, to be used for sustainable gastro-logistics. The purchase was part of the so-called ‘Meersburg electrifies’ project, aimed at raising awareness of the impact of vehicle emissions and the relevance of zero-emission commercial vehicles. The all-electric Q-Light, which will be part of the Ikea fleets in Austria, is now supplying the gastronomy in Meersburg and the surrounding area through the project partner and gastro-logistics company Geyer Food Konzept.

Quantron Q-Light for urban delivery services

The Q-Light is suitable for delivery services in daily city traffic. The vehicle is featured by a body equipped with its own HV batteries. This means that the range of the vehicle is not reduced by the cooling capacity of the body. Due to different body options, the vehicle is suitable for flexible use in a wide variety of areas. Quantron also sells the Q-Light as a hybrid and hydrogen fuel cell vehicle. The German manufacturer has recently announced a very significant agreement with Ballard for the development of fuel cell commercial vehicles.

«By switching to zero-emission transport, the city of Meersburg is sending an important signal for an environmentally conscious and green future. We at QUANTRON are pleased to be able to contribute to this change with our environmentally friendly Q-Light BEV», said Christoph Wede, Head of Sales Trucks & Bus EMEA at Quantron.

«We were looking for a company and finally found it in QUANTRON, which converted a standard diesel truck into a fully electric vehicle for us, because such vehicles were not available from German manufacturers», added the Mayor of Meersburg, Robert Scherer.
