Scania Launches ‘Electric Solutions’

SCANIA has revealed the next step on its electrification journey with new battery electric trucks and a solutions focused sales approach.
The new trucks come with an improved driveline, batteries and charging capability, and are available in R and S sleeper cabs and as a 4×2 tractor or as 6×2/4 rigids.
Christian Levin, CEO of Scania, said: “We are increasing our range and offering new opportunities to cater for a wider selection of customers and the whole transport ecosystem. These new battery electric trucks are based on the classic Scania principle of modularity.”
Fredrik Allard, senior vice president and head of electrification at Scania, said: “We can now offer a sustainable and multi-faceted portfolio of zero-emission solutions for our customers.
“The vehicle’s range is dependent on several factors, including weight, configuration and topography, but a 4×2 tractor with six batteries will be able to do up to 350km between charges, travelling at an average speed of 50mph. The charging capability has been increased up to 375kW, which means that after an hour of charging it can add up to 300km of range.
“The continuous power output level for the Scania 45 R and S is 410kW, approximately 560hp, while the new triple electric machine powertrain provides ample electro-mechanical power take-off to support power hungry applications. Which means customers will be able to use these new battery electric vehicles for temperature controlled and bulk transportation.
“The 4×2 tractor’s axle distance has been increased to 4,150mm when specified with six batteries, allowing it to benefit from the increased vehicle dimension regulation in Europe. Gross train weight for the tractor unit is up to 64 tonnes.”
Scania’s new fully electric trucks are available for order now, with production commencing in Q4 2023.
The battery electric eActros LongHaul long-distance truck will be Mercedes-Benz show highlight at this year’s IAA Transportation in Hanover.
