Quantum To Demonstrate Its Plug-In Hybrid Electric F-150 Pick-Up Truck At The Electric Utility Fleet Managers Conference In Williamsburg, VA

IRVINE, Calif., June 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide, Inc. (NASDAQ: QTWW), a global leader in natural gas, hydrogen and hybrid/electric vehicle technologies, today announced that it will demonstrate its clean, fuel efficient, Plug-In Hybrid Electric (PHEV) F-150 pickup truck to nation's leading fleet managers at the 2012 Electric Utility Fleet Managers Conference (EUFMC) in Williamsburg, Virginia, June 2-6, 2012.

The EUFMC is an annual meeting of fleet representatives from electric utility companies, typically attracting the largest investor-owned electric utilities in the U.S., Canada and South America as well as major electric cooperatives and contractors.

"We are pleased to demonstrate Quantum's exciting PHEV F-150 at the Electric Utility Fleet Managers Conference, for the fleet managers to experience firsthand the performance and versatility of our highly efficient electric drive system," said Brian Olson, the CEO of Quantum. "Our green fleet truck is an ideal solution for fleet managers who are interested in lowering their total cost of ownership, while also reducing greenhouse gas emissions and meeting corporate sustainability goals."

Quantum announced on May 30th, 2012 that it has delivered the first pilot version of its PHEV F-150 pickup truck to Florida Power & Light Company (FPL), in association with Dow Kokam, the lithium-ion battery system supplier for the PHEV F-150. Quantum's innovative "F-Drive" parallel hybrid drive system powers the PHEV F-150 – first 35 miles on a series-hybrid electric zero emission mode, followed by an efficient parallel-hybrid drive mode that extends the range up to 600 miles, and yielding a 100+ mpg fuel efficiency depending on the drive cycle. The innovative integration scheme for the F-Drive and the state-of-the art Lithium Ion battery system ensures full ground clearance without impingement into the cab or cargo bed. The PHEV F-150 fleet vehicles incorporating Quantum's F-Drive will meet CARB/EPA emission regulations and the safety regulations from the US Department of Transportation Federal Motor Vehicles Safety Standards (DOT FMVSS).
