Swiss vehicle maker Quadro Vehicles S.A. announced it is entering the U.S. market and will be exhibiting at the 2019 AIMExpo presented by Nationwide later this month in Columbus, Ohio.
“Everybody at Quadro Vehicles S.A. is thrilled to announce our entry into the all-important U.S. market with the QOODER brand and the establishment of our subsidiary, Qooder USA,” said Paolo Gagliardo, CEO and chairman of Quadro Vehicles.
This will be the Swiss company’s first appearance in the U.S. where it will display QOODER — a new and unique product category — in booth #833 at AIMExpo presented by Nationwide, which takes place on Sept. 26-29 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus.
“The United States is the single most important market in the world, and we are ready to bring our innovative, fun and groundbreaking mobility solutions to a new audience,” Gagliardo said.
“We’re so excited to be in Columbus at the heart of the American powersports and mobility industry,” Gagliardo continued. “Introducing QOODER to American enthusiasts for the first time, in conjunction with meeting the best business partners, is sure to be the beginning of an exciting adventure in personal mobility for all of us.”
The company’s flagship — the QOODER — is the only four-wheeled tilting street vehicle in the world, and an all-new, one-of-a-kind product category that combines the road handling and safety of an automobile with the fun and riding dynamics of a motorcycle.
The QOODER is as agile as a scooter and as rugged as an all-terrain vehicle. The headline feature of the QOODER is the internationally patented HTS (Hydraulic Tilting System), which is a revolutionary independent suspension system that allows all four wheels to tilt simultaneously. Fun, smooth and precise, the QOODER delivers confident road manners while maintaining superior road traction. With an automatic transmission, twinned rear wheels with dual rear-wheel drive, and four-wheel independent HTS suspension, the QOODER blends advanced technology, superior safety and riding excitement.
Also on display is the three-wheeled QV3 — characterized by its lightweight, bold oversized wheels and the patented HTS suspension. The QV3 is built to overcome the challenges of urban mobility.
Since its restructuring in 2018, Quadro Vehicles S.A. has seen tremendous success and volume growth of its new and unique product category. In just one year it has seen rocketing growth in Europe with approximately 4,000 vehicles sold, 2,000 of which were the four-wheel QOODER. And the company forecasts 6,500 unit sales for 2019.
“Our primary motivation during this first appearance in the U.S. at AIMExpo is to introduce ourselves to other professionals in the industry, tell our story to the media, introduce the exciting new 2020 product lineup and meet the best distribution partners in the United States,” Gagliardo said. “Our goal for moving forward includes creating a great distribution network in key regions and cities. Please visit us at booth #833 where we can chat about our unique QOODER products and the opportunity for your business.”
"We’re very happy Quadro Vehicles has taken advantage of everything AIMExpo presented by Nationwide has to offer to achieve its goals of establishing its business in the USA and building a distribution network. Having local and international brands trust our show and use it as a tool to achieve their goals solidifies our position as North America's most important powersports trade show," said Andre Albert, Director, Sales and Marketing.
