Quantron Cizaris 12 EV wins German Sustainability Award Design 2023
German start-up vehicle manufacturer Quantron has been awarded the German Sustainability Award Design 2023 ("Deutscher Nachhaltigkeitspreis Design 2023") for their Quantron Cizaris 12 EV city bus. The prize was awarded for the third time this year to 17 winners. It honors products, systems and services that represent particularly sustainable alternatives with an exemplary effect.
The Quantron Cizaris 12 EV was selected as the winner by the jury from more than 100 entries. The decision was made in favour of the all-electric city bus due to its functional interior and exterior design, allowing easy access even for people with limited mobility, and Quantron's comprehensive sustainability concept. Thus, the company not only supplies its customers with the zero-emission vehicle, but with the Quantron-as-a-Service Ecoystem also addresses all other necessary areas for sustainable inner-city public transport, such as a sufficient charging infrastructure.
Michael Perschke, CEO of Quantron AG, said, "We are delighted to be among the winners of the German Sustainability Award 2023 with the Quantron Cizaris. With our zero-emission vehicles, we want to make climate-friendly mobility the new standard in urban transport."
Alexander Stucke, Head of Bus Sales at Quantron AG, said "The Award is an honour and recognition of our work to position the Quantron Cizaris as one of the segment-leading BEV 12meter busses. It's convincing regarding user-friendliness, BEV range, and drivers' usability. In 2023 we will start first deliveries in Europe and participate in tenders all over Europe."
The all-electric Quantron Cizaris 12 EV low-floor bus is customized to the individual requirements of the customer and the route driven every day. Depending on the battery size, it achieves a range of up to 450 km in daily use. The vehicle interior is also tailored to the customer's specific wishes. The interior offers space for up to 95 passengers. The seat upholstery can be customized using an innovative digital textile print. To ease guidance for visually impaired passengers, color accents can be used to highlight seats.
The award ceremony occurred in Düsseldorf, Germany, as part of the 15th German Sustainability Day. The Stiftung Deutscher Nachhaltigkeitspreis e.V. enjoys a stellar reputation in the industry and is awarded in cooperation with the German government, municipal organizations, business associations, civil society organizations and research institutions.
