QUANTRON receives European Transport Award for Sustainability 2022
Quantron AG – a system provider of clean battery-electric and hydrogen-electric e-mobility for commercial vehicles – has received the European Transport Award for Sustainability for its all-electric Q-Light BEV van.
Presented in 2022 for the sixth time, the European Transport Award for Sustainability recognises outstanding sustainable performance combined with economic success within the commercial vehicle industry. The prestigious prize – offered by HUSS-Verlag and its renowned trade medium TRANSPORT – recognises companies from the commercial vehicle industry that offer sustainable products, services, projects, studies or initiatives.
An independent jury of commercial vehicle experts – including Professor Dr Dirk Engelhardt (Spokesman of the Board of the German Freight Transport & Logistics Association) and Professor Dr Uwe Clausen (Fraunhofer Institute for Logistics) – evaluated the entries based on the topics of economy, ecology and social responsibility.
Quantron AG received the award in the ‘Vans and Delivery Vehicles’ category for its all-electric Q-Light BEV van.
Emission-free and quiet electric drive
The environmentally friendly Q-Light BEV from Quantron AG impressed the jury with its emission-free and quiet electric drive and its wide range of applications. The e-transporter has already been in daily use for months at corporations such as IKEA, and is also offered by QUANTRON as a hybrid and hydrogen fuel cell variant.
Michael Perschke, CEO and Member of the Board of Quantron AG, accepted the award at the award ceremony in Munich: "We are very pleased to receive this award,” he enthused. “Our Q-Light BEV stands for emission-free and thus climate-friendly delivery. With our zero-emission commercial vehicles, QUANTRON is already making an important contribution to the decarbonisation of freight and passenger transport."
