Quantya Enters EV Charging Market And Unveils vRone Scooter

Swiss electric motorcycle manufacturer Quantya SA announced plans to enter the home charging business to diversify their product offerings, aid their push into fleet sales, and gain market share.

The Electrant charging station and vRone scooter are being developed in collaboration with the Swiss organization, vonRoll Industries.

The vRone looks to be a progression of the original Quantya Squter prototype I wrote about almost one year ago. The specs are reported to be the same but there is talk inside Quantya of an 84 Volt / 70 Ah version. The specs reported last year are in the photo gallery after the break.

You’ll notice in the pictures this is not a hub motor scooter which makes it different from most of the electric scooters on the market. Dario, the man in the big leather chair at Quantya USA, rode the earlier prototype and mentioned it was belt drive.

Look for the Quantya vRone and Electrant charging station to roll out early this year.
