Quantum Shows Off Electric Vehicle and NGV Knowhow

May 17, 2012 by Kirk Fetzer in ACT Expo 2012 with 0 Comments

Irvine, Calif.-based Quantum is showing both electric vehicle and gaseous fuel capabilities at Booth 251, illustrating its EV prowess with a plug-in hybrid electric Ford F-150 pickup truck, and promoting all-composite Type IV CNG cylinders.

Both, says Quantum’s new CEO Brian Olson, “provide ideal solutions to fleet operators who are under increasing pressure to reduce costs, while meeting stringent emission criteria and performance requirements.”

The Quantum F-150 PHEV pickup truck features the firm’s F-Drive parallel plug-in hybrid electric drive. F-Drive allows the truck to run 35 miles on electricity before switching to an efficient hybrid drive mode. Quantum supplies its Q-Drive for the Fisker Karma luxury plug-in.

In April, Quantum disclosed a new purchase order worth $857,000 for Type IV CNG tanks from a leading natural gas vehicle system integrator. Among Quantum’s previously named tank customers is Agility Fuel Systems (Booth 224).

Quantum just this past Friday announced the resignation of Alan Niedzwiecki and Dale Rasmussen from their positions as president and CEO, and executive chairman.
