Quantron AG, specialist in sustainable passenger and freight transportation, announces that it has signed the Zero Emissions Vehicle Declaration (ZEV Declaration) and joins a global community supported by the Accelerating to Zero Coalition (A2Z Coalition). With this step, the clean tech company underscores its commitment to drive the global shift to zero-emission transportation.

The ZEV Declaration was launched at COP26 in Glasgow by a leadership group of more than 100 countries, companies, and organizations. It aims to achieve 100% zero-emission new car and van sales in leading markets by 2035 and globally by 2040 at the latest. Over 220 organizations, including 115+ national and regional governments and six of the largest OEMs, have already signed on.

The signatories of the ZEV Declaration commit to ensuring that only zero-emission vehicles are sold in leading markets worldwide no later than 2040 and by 2035 in leading markets. By the end of 2022, 66 governments have already taken action to stop the sale of new internal combustion engine vehicles. This includes 20 national governments, 28 regional and local authorities, and 18 EU countries covered by the EU target.

Additionally, to support the growing number of signatories and connect the world’s leading zero-emission transportation organizations, the Accelerating to Zero Coalition (A2Z Coalition) was established in 2022. It serves as a platform where signatories can coordinate, align and strengthen their activities to achieve their ambitious goals.

QUANTRON is proud to now be a part of this global initiative to drive a more sustainable and emission-free future for the transportation sector. The company looks forward to contributing its expertise and innovations to accelerate the transition to zero-emission vehicles worldwide.

Michael Perschke, CEO of Quantron AG stated: “We welcome the opportunity to sign the ZEV Declaration. QUANTRON is zero-emission from its inception, it is part of our DNA. It feels like a natural act to sign the ZEV Declaration, since this is exactly our purpose: We deliver holistic solutions to the transport industry and help them to wean fleets off fossil fuels. We have the broadest zero-emission vehicle portfolio in the industry, due to our technology agnostic approach, offering BEV and FCEV.

QUANTRON has already delivered 200 zero-emission vehicles to customers, including the first battery electric truck in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia through its partner Electromin (a Petromin Corporation company). This puts QUANTRON at the forefront to drive the transition of global fleets to sustainable alternative technologies.

As Secretariat of the Accelerating to Zero Coalition, we are encouraged by QUANTRON’s signing of the ZEV Declaration, which signals positive momentum in this global transition to a zero-emission transportation sector,” says Rachel Muncrief, acting executive director of the International Council on Clean Transportation. “Active collaboration across all segments of ZEV Declaration signatories will be crucial to achieve our Paris-aligned targets, and as a new signatory, QUANTRON has a critical role to play.
