"When evaluating the electric propulsion solutions, QUANTRON selected Allison’s eGen Power 130D e-Axle due to its outstanding benefits, including optimized efficiency and performance, a next generation controls system and industry-leading package density,” said René Wollmann, CTO, Quantron AG. “In addition, Allison has a legendary reputation for reliability and durability. We believe that Allison’s differentiated e-Axle portfolio will allow QUANTRON to accelerate our growth.”
The QUANTRON FCEV truck has 54 kilograms of on-board hydrogen storage with fuel cells supplied by Ballard Power Systems, delivering 240 kilowatts of clean power into a 118 kilowatt-hour battery pack to support a range up to 700 kilometers in the displayed version QUANTRON QHM FCEV 44-1000. The vehicle is available for orders in 4x2 and 6x2 axle configurations, with availability for customer testing in 2023.
At the heart of the truck is the Allison eGen Power 130D electric axle, which combines two electric motors and a two-speed transmission in one compact unit. The two integrated electric motors deliver a total of 454 kW of continuous power and up to 652 kW of peak power. QUANTRON will be the latest customer to integrate the eGen Power 130D, which was specifically designed to operate in commercial vehicles in European and Asia Pacific markets. Allison’s eGen Power family of e-Axles includes two additional variants developed to address the wide range of markets Allison serves.
