Quantron unveils first all-electric 12-meter city bus

Ev Dynamics (Holdings) Limited‘s strategic partner, Quantron AG, has unveiled Cizaris, an all-electric 12-meter low-floor city bus. Available for order today, the bus features a range up to 220 miles, with an overnight charging time of three to five hours, the company says.

Designed, engineered and manufactured by Ev Dynamics in collaboration with Quantron, the bus is based on Ev Dynamics’ rolling e-platform chassis which fully integrates the drivetrain, battery and vehicle control unit into one turn-key NEV system. The Cizaris is Quantron’s first commercial vehicle introduced under its new Q-mobility product line.

The Cizaris is available today in metro markets of Eastern and Southern Europe, Scandinavia and Middle East. The market introduction for Germany, Austria and Switzerland is planned for the second half of 2022. Cizaris customers will be supported by Quantron’s network of 700 service partners across Europe.

The Cizaris is initially available as a battery electric vehicle (BEV), powered by lithium-iron phosphate batteries provided by CATL, the world’s largest battery producer. A fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) option is expected later this year, with proton-exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells supplied by a global provider of clean energy fuel cell solutions.

Ev Dynamics says it has dispatched more than 1,000 buses and luxury coaches globally. Late last year, Ev Dynamics shipped to the Philippines an initial 70 of 500 Comet electric minibuses under a long-term supply agreement with GET Worldwide.

The Quantron Cizaris addresses the European electric bus market that is expected to grow at a 23% compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) to reach $4.0 billion by 2027. The bus also supports Europe’s Clean Vehicles Directive, which aims to increase the share of low- and zero-emission trucks to 29% to 50% by 2025.
