Quantron and Petromin Corporation partner to deliver 50 battery-electric trucks, marking a milestone in the Kingdom’s decarbonisation efforts and Saudi Vision 2030 sustainability goals.
Quantron AG and Petromin Corporation have partnered in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, to deliver 50 battery-electric Quantron Qargo 4 EV light trucks. These vehicles are set to support clients, including PepsiCo and Red Sea Global, in their pursuit of reducing their carbon footprint. This marks the most extensive deployment of battery-electric trucks in Saudi Arabia and aligns with the country’s vision to decarbonise mobility, a key component of Saudi Vision 2030.
Petromin, a leading multinational organisation in Saudi Arabia, has played a pivotal role in this project, establishing Saudi Arabia’s inaugural fleet of zero-emission battery-electric trucks in partnership with Quantron. The new truck is designed to enhance urban transport and last-mile deliveries by offering more than 250km of range, thanks to its 81kWh CATL battery.
This switch from diesel to battery electric is estimated to result in a reduction of 31.5kg of carbon emissions per 100 kilometers, accounting for a mixed load, an average driving time of approximately 3.6 hours, and 10 stops for loading and offloading cargo.
“By joining forces, Electromin and Quantron have forged a powerful alliance that capitalises on their unique skill sets and positions them at the forefront of the e-mobility revolution in KSA,” said Kalyana Sivagnanam, Group CEO of Petromin Corporation. ”This partnership enables the pooling of resources, knowledge, and experience, paving the way for the creation of innovative, sustainable mobility solutions that will revolutionise transportation in the Kingdom.”
“We are delighted and proud to announce that Quantron is a partner of choice to Petromin in this truly pioneering project led by Anil Reddi, director Quantron-as-a-Service, driving the ambitious decarbonisation goals of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia forward,” added Michael Perschke, CEO of Quantron AG. ”This is a significant step for us towards internationalisation and entry into the Middle East. It’s merely the beginning of a journey where Quantron and Petromin will leverage their complementary expertise to revolutionise the mobility landscape in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.”
