Quantron AG has developed a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle based on Iveco Stralis’ ‘long-nosed’ cousin – Strator. Series production of this truck named Energon will start in two years’ time.
The vehicle manufacturer from Gersthofen developed a fuel cell vehicle called Energon, based on Iveco Strator, a version of Stralis designed for the Australian market. Quantron, according to German transport media, plans to start serial production of hydrogen-powered trucks in the first half of 2022.
Energon is a truck with a GVW of up to 44 tonnes and a range of almost 700 kilometres.
Thanks to a 110 kWh LFP (lithium-iron-phosphate) battery, the 130 kW fuel cell used, drives a 340 kW engine, which is equipped with a 2-speed gearbox. The manufacturer has informed about the possibility of placing an order for Energon, which will entitle the buyer to a discount of €10,000.
