Quantron to reveal  ‘cheaper than competitors’ all-electric 12m bus

“A cost-efficient zero-emission alternative: The price will be below the market price for comparable BEV buses,” says e-mobility specialist Quantron ahead of its launch of its 12m all-electric city bus.

The vehicle will be showcased worldwide as part of an online presentation on 16 February 16. It is thought it will be called ‘Cizaris’.

The zero-emission city bus is initially available as a BEV version with “a price that is below the current price level for comparable BEV buses” says the Germany-based firm.

“In this way, Quantron AG seeks to enable environmentally friendly passenger transport and offer a cost-effective alternative to conventional diesel buses.

A hydrogen fuel-cell version of the 12 m vehicle with fuel cells from Ballard Power Systems is already under development.

Ahead of the launch, Quantron has provided some outline technical details.

It says the bus “relies on proven and safe technology and LiFePo4 batteries from the world’s leading manufacturer CATL.”

The charging power is up to 150 kW with a battery capacity of up to 422 kWh. With a range range of up to 360 km according to E-SORT 2, the bus meets the requirements to cover daily city operation with an overnight charging time of 3 to 5 hours.

Various equipment options will be available to suit individual customer requirements.
