Quantron is to deliver 38 purely electric heavy commercial vehicles to the company Hama Trucks in Augsburg. The first e-trucks are to roll to the customer as early as the end of the year and then be sublet.

Specifically, it is the Quantron QHM BEV model, which is to be delivered both as a tractor unit and as a swap body vehicle. The QHM BEV has a 450 kW battery and can travel up to 300 kilometres on one battery charge. Quantron says the total value of the order is €16 million.

“The delivery of the trucks is another step in our mission to promote sustainable mobility and advance environmentally friendly solutions in the transport sector,” says Andreas Haller, founder and CEO of Quantron AG.

In addition, there is a subsidy from the federal government. According to the truck manufacturer, all 38 vehicles will be subsidised by the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMDV) through the KsNi subsidy programme, i.e. 80 per cent of the additional expenditure.

Quantron has made headlines in recent months, especially with its fuel cell trucks. In June, for example, the company launched its B financing round with a focus on North America. In October 2022, for example, Quantron had founded a subsidiary in the USA that focuses on hydrogen solutions for long-haul transport. This was followed in early May this year by the presentation of a US Class 8 H2 truck for the US market at the Advanced Clean Transportation Expo in Anaheim, California. And in July, the French company Mob’Hy signed a letter of intent to procure 253 hydrogen-powered Quantron vehicles.
