  • Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide, Inc. (QTWW) To Demonstrate Hybrid Truck 0 comments
    Jun 5, 2012 10:24 AM | about stocks: QTWW

    Quantum Fuel Systems yesterday announced that it will hold a demonstration of its new Plug-In Hybrid Electric (PHEV) F-150 pickup truck at the 2012 Electric Utility Fleet Managers Conference (EUFMC) in Williamsburg, Virginia, June 2-6, 2012. Quantum will be showcasing its new truck to fleet managers from electric utility companies in the U.S., Canada, and South America.

    Quantum Fuel is a fully integrated alternative fuel company that develops and produces advanced propulsion systems, energy storage technologies, and alternative fuel vehicles. Quantum's portfolio includes technology such as hybrid electric drive systems and natural gas/hydrogen storage and metering systems. Quantum also develops components for hybrid and plug-in hybrid vehicles.

    On May 30, Quantum announced that the company had delivered the first pilot version of its new truck to Florida Power & Light Company, in association with Dow Kokam, the supplier of the lithium-ion battery system for the PHEV F-150. Along with Dow Kokam's lithium-ion products, the PHEV-150 is powered by Quantum's F-Drive hybrid drive system. The first 35 miles is on a series-hybrid electric zero emission mode, followed by an efficient parallel-hybrid drive mode that extends the range up to 600 miles, while yielding a 100-plus mpg fuel efficiency depending on the drive cycle.

    Vehicles with the F-Drive and lithium-ion battery will have full ground clearance and will meet CARB/EPA emission regulations and the safety regulations from the US Department of Transportation Federal Motor Vehicles Safety Standards.

    Brian Olson, CEO of Quantum, said, "We are pleased to demonstrate Quantum's exciting PHEV F-150 at the Electric Utility Fleet Managers Conference, for the fleet managers to experience firsthand the performance and versatility of our highly efficient electric drive system. Our green fleet truck is an ideal solution for fleet managers who are interested in lowering their total cost of ownership, while also reducing greenhouse gas emissions and meeting corporate sustainability goals."
