Quantum Receives Order for Hydrogen Hybrid Vehicles for U.S. Army

October 22, 2007

IRVINE, Calif. --- Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide announced that it received an order for six hydrogen hybrid vehicles for the U.S. Army's Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center (TARDEC). The contract will be administered by Aerospace Engineering Spectrum (AES), based in Ogden, Utah. This order follows Quantum's successful development of a Ford Escape Hydrogen Hybrid for TARDEC, incorporating an advanced hydrogen fuel injection system and ultra-lightweight hydrogen storage system. The six Ford Escape Hydrogen Hybrids will be placed into service as administrative fleet vehicles at two military facilities in North America. This deployment will support the U.S. Army and its 21st Century Base initiative. "With oil prices as high as $80 a barrel, interest continues to grow worldwide in Quantum's hydrogen hybrid vehicles as near-term alternatives to reduce emissions and petroleum usage through the implementation of hydrogen technologies," said Alan P. Niedzwiecki, president and CEO of Quantum.
