GERMAN ‘clean’ vehicle provider Quantron AG has confirmed the name of its forthcoming 12-metre electric city bus as the ‘Cizaris’, which is to officially debut globally to the public on February 16, 2022, it was announced recently.

The soon-to-debut 12m Cizaris e-bus relies on proven and safe technology and LiFePo4 batteries from the world's leading manufacturer CATL, Quantron explains.

Starting from 10.00am, the online premiere will be available to operators, bus fans and the general public at: event.quantron.net, or via www.quantron.net, the company confirms.

Said to use proven and safe technology, Quantron’s Cizaris bus is a "…cost-efficient zero-emission alternative," it says and "…the price will be below the market price for comparable BEV buses," the e-mobility specialist claims.

In this way Quantron seeks to enable environmentally friendly passenger transport and offer a cost-effective alternative to conventional diesel buses, it says.

The Fuel-cell Electric Version (FCEV) version of the 12m vehicle with cells from Ballard Power Systems is already under development, it confirms.

The 12m bus relies on proven and safe technology and LiFePo4 batteries from the world's leading manufacturer CATL, it explains. The charging power is up to 80kW with a battery capacity of up to 422kWh, it confirms. With a range of up to 360km according to E-SORT 2, the bus meets the requirements to cover daily city operation with an overnight charging time of 3 - 5 hours, it says. Various equipment options will be available to suit individual customer requirements, Quantron adds.
