Quantron unveils hydrogen-electric truck with 930-mile range

At this year’s IAA Transportation show, Quantron presented a number of long-range, FCEV trucks.

As part of a strategic partnership, Quantron has developed an FCEV Heavy Duty Truck together with Ballard Power Systems. The Quantron QHM FCEV uses a FCmove-XD 120 kW fuel cell newly developed by Ballard as well as an integrated eGen Power 130D E-axle from Allison Transmission. In addition, Quantron offers an optionally available aero package for all QHM FCEV trucks which the company says has been designed to improve the operating range by a further 10%.

The Quantron QHM FCEV 60-2000 and Quantron QHM FCEV 44-2000 will offer exceptionally large tank capacities of up to 116 kg, which are fully integrated in the chassis and positioned behind the cab. This will enable ranges of up to 1500 km (approx. 932 miles) with a single H2 tank filling, the company says.

Under the designation Quantron QHM FCEV 27-1000, this configuration will also be available as a road train version for long-distance heavy-load transports.

ZF announced it developed an electric motor that does not require magnets. In contrast to the magnet-free concepts of separately excited synchronous motors (SESM) already available today, ZF said its I2SM (In-Rotor Inductive-Excited Synchronous Motor) transmits the energy for the magnetic field via an inductive exciter inside the rotor shaft. This makes the motor uniquely compact with maximum power and torque density.
