Germany’s QUANTRON’s has unveiled its new twelve meters long, all-electric bus called the CIZARIS 12 EV. Lithium iron phosphate batteries from QUANTRON’s partner CATL, combined with a central synchronous motor, ensure ranges of up to 370 kilometres.

In total, the bus has room for 81 to 95 passengers depending on the battery package.

The CIZARIS represents the entry of electric vehicle pioneer QUANTRON into the sustainable city bus market.

For the market launch, the sales focus will initially be on Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Scandinavia and Southern Europe.

The market launch in Germany, Austria and Switzerland will take place in the second half of 2022.

It will be followed in 2023 by a fuel cell drive (CIZARIS 12 H) that will use a largely identical powertrain. Both two- and three-door models with a total of nine interior layouts will be made available.

In a press statement, the company says: ‘The name of the new offering for sustainable and reliable mobility in cities says it all: the basic “CI” stands for “City” – i.e. the area of use – the central and prominent “Z” stands for “Zero (emissions)” and the suffix “ARIS” is derived from the Greek and stands for “the noblest/the best”.’
