2021 in figures
Net sales was boosted by increasing vehicle and engines volumes, as well as a growing service business.
Increasing sales volumes had a positive impact on operating income, though hampered by higher cost related to supply chain disturbances and higher material costs.
*In 2021 operating income including items affecting comparability amounted to SEK 11,294 m.
Scania’s total number of employees increased in 2021.
The number of connected vehicles is steadily increasing. 64 percent of Scania’s 10-year rolling fleet of trucks and buses is now connected.
Scania aims to achieve a 20 percent reduction in CO2e from products during the user phase by 2025, with 100 percent in 2015 as the baseline. From 2015 to 2020 the reduction is 4 percent.
*Input data is co2e/km from operative months within 12 months and starting after the month of production, causing reporting to lag one year.
2021 saw a small increase in emissions due to a high level of activity in operations compared to 2020. The reduction since 2015 is 37 percent.
Increases in sales of gas, FAME, hybrids and battery electric trucks resulted in an increase compared to 2020.
With production at a high level, we see an increase in total energy use in 2021 compared to 2020, but at the same time a decrease in use per vehicle produced.
Research and development
The aim of Scania’s research and development organisation is to develop sustainable solutions that improve productivity and profitability in customer operations based on low fuel consumption, high vehicle uptime and low service costs, combined with good performance. Scania puts significant investment and resources into research and development, which is concentrated at the Scania Technical Centre in Södertälje. In 2021, Scania invested SEK 7.5 bn in research and development (6.5), which corresponded to 5.1 percent of net sales.
