  • Quantum Fuel System Technologies Worldwide Inc. (QTWW) Extended Range Vehicle Showcased At The Chicago Auto Show 0 comments
    Feb 10, 2012 2:11 PM | about stocks: QTWW
    Today, Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide, Inc., a global leader in natural gas, hydrogen, and hybrid electric vehicle technologies, announced that the U.S. Army's Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center (TARDEC) is sending the company's Quantum Clandestine Extended Range Vehicle (CERV) to the Chicago Auto Show. TARDEC will display two Quantum CERVs from its Detroit Arsenal-based headquarters at the Chicago Army Recruiting Battalion display. The Chicago Auto Show, to be held February 10-19 at the McCormick Place, is the nation's oldest and largest Auto Show.

    The U.S. Army labeled the CERV as one of the "greenest technologies" to demonstrate how its advanced diesel hybrid-electric powertrain developed by Quantum and TARDEC saves taxpayer dollars and - most importantly - soldiers' lives. The move is part of the Army's effort to showcase its latest energy-efficiency efforts.

    Quantum Fuel's CERVs are lightweight, diesel-electric hybrid prototypes with a top speed of 80 mph. Designed for reconnaissance, targeting, and rescue missions, CERV has silent run capabilities of eight miles, and has been certified for internal transportation in aircraft. CERV consumes up to 25 percent less fuel compared with conventional vehicles of comparable size. A recent Army Energy Security Task Force report states that a 1 percent improvement in fuel economy results in 6,444 fewer soldier trips on fuel convoys.

    "Quantum's high efficiency powertrain technologies help to save fuel, while enhancing vehicle performance and versatility," said Alan P. Niedzwiecki, President and CEO of Quantum. "Our new generation powertrains are ideal to support tactical operations in both urban and un-urban environments across the broad range of U.S. military operations and terrain profiles, for direct action, reconnaissance, and unconventional warfare and counter terrorism."
