QUANTRON’s first all-electric Q-Light was already used for extensive testing at the logistics center in June. With a range of at least 170 km, a drive power of 100 kW and a maximum charging power of 70 kW, the e-transporters are ideally equipped for routes between IKEA locations and customers’ delivery addresses. Initially, the vehicles will be used for deliveries to all 23 of Vienna’s municipal districts and within a 30 km radius of the logistics center. The electricity for the vehicles is generated by photovoltaic systems and thus comes from 100 percent renewable energy sources.
Andreas Haller, founder and CEO of Quantron AG: “We are pleased to be able to support IKEA with our knowledge and expertise in this important step towards emission-free delivery. With its switch to electric mobility, IKEA is sending an important signal internationally for a greener future. QUANTRON is helping companies like IKEA with our many years of e-mobility experience and our international network to make the switch to emission-free freight transport.”
Claes Lindgren, Country Customer Fulfillment Manager at IKEA Austria: “Climate protection cannot be postponed, which is why IKEA is working consistently to save emissions and become climate-positive. Quantron AG is a competent partner with high-quality products that we can trust 100%. Today marks the start of the deployment of our new environmentally friendly QUANTRON vehicles in Vienna. At the end of this month, a car-free IKEA furniture store will also open at Vienna’s Westbahnhof station, which will deliver the purchased goods to our customers’ homes directly and in an environmentally friendly manner. In the future, we will roll out our innovative delivery concept throughout Austria. By 2025, we plan to completely switch to zero-emission vehicles.”
