HONG KONG, Feb. 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Ev Dynamics (Holdings) Limited (HK: 0476), a leading global provider of new energy vehicle (NEV) platform technologies, announced that its 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 370 kilometers or 220 miles, with overnight charging time of only three to five hours.
The unveiling was hosted by Roger Atkins, CEO of Electric Vehicles Outlook, a leading voice for the global EV industry. A replay of the event is available on the QUANTRON YouTube Channel and at event.quantron.net.
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.
“This new state-of-the-art, highly-efficient, all-electric bus represents a breakthrough in new energy vehicle design and manufacturing that narrows the traditional price gap between diesel and zero-emission vehicles,” stated QUANTRON founder and chairman, Andreas Haller. “It also represents a major milestone in our mission to expand our legacy business from retrofitting zero-emission trucks, vans and buses, to offering our own e-mobility vehicles.”
QUANTRON CEO, Michael Perschke, added: “Our transition to new commercial NEV production has been made possible through our close collaboration with our major partner and investor, Ev Dynamics, a clear global leader in OEM NEV technologies. Their design expertise and strong manufacturing capabilities have allowed us to realize an amazingly fast time-to-market with CIZARIS than we ever could have imagined. Its successful launch today demonstrates our commitment to supporting affordable and environmentally friendly passenger transport to cities in Europe and across the globe.”
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’ turn-key e-platform solution was designed to enable the rapid development of commercial NEVs. It dramatically reduces the traditional development costs and typical regulatory approvals required to establish new NEV designs and specialized manufacturing facilities.
The e-platform represents a more cost-effective alternative to conventional vehicle designs, engineering and manufacturing approaches, at a cost considerably lower than comparable commercial BEVs.
According to Ev Dynamics CEO, Miguel Valldecabres Polop: “Our many years of engineering and manufacturing experience combined with our advanced NEV technology has enabled QUANTRON to narrow the price gap between diesel and zero-emission vehicles, as well as offer many customizable options to meet individual market needs. We believe this approach is key to delivering reliable and sustainable transportation for people around the world.”
Unlike many of its NEV competitors and public company peers, Ev Dynamics has already 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 US$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.
