IKEA Austria introduces Quantron hydrogen-powered trucks

Quantron AG will supply the Quantron QLI FCEV model vehicles and the transporters will be fueled with green hydrogen.

IKEA Austria, together with Quantron AG, introduced hydrogen fuel cell trucks. Quantron AG will supply the Quantron QLI FCEV model vehicles and the transporters will be fueled with green hydrogen from energy supplier Wien Energie. The fuel cell vehicles were developed in collaboration with Ballard Power Systems and the entire process from feasibility study to delivery took only 18 months, enabling the Quantron QLI FCEV to hit the road quickly.

Quantron said its “Inside” technology offers a user-friendly complete package with an e-axle, customized high-performance battery, fuel cell and tank system integration, and energy management and aerodynamics for maximum efficiency. One tank of fuel is sufficient for a range of up to 400 km (approx. 248 miles), allowing distances of more than 500 km (approx. 310) per day.

The use of the battery-electric Quantron vehicles saves around 450 tons of CO2 annually, the company said. The FCEV trucks have a longer range for deliveries even outside urban areas and are expected to reduce CO2 emissions by another 160 tons per year. By 2025, IKEA Austria plans to make 100% of its last-mile deliveries emission-free and the company announced an expansion of its fleet of H2 trucks to 40 units by 2025.
