Scania's battery electric buses are designed to enable the sustainable and efficient mobility that is needed in the modern city of today and tomorrow. They are connected, equipped with a number of safety systems and features, are much quieter and have zero tailpipe emissions. The journey towards a better city environment starts with the fully electric Scania Citywide.

With fast in-route charging and the battery capacity needed to cover almost any city route, the fully electric Scania Citywide can stay on the road day and night. The buses are designed to be easily serviced and cleaned, making sure they do not have to be in the depot longer than necessary.
Buses with high passenger capacities help create a more efficient public transport system, but they also potentially help to keep costs down by minimising total vehicle fleet investment. Scania Citywide allows operators to reap those benefits by offering a technical capacity of up to 105 passengers – due to high axle load capacity, reduced chassis and body weight, adjusted interior layout options, and by carrying less battery weight.
A bus for efficient operations
Compared to buses with conventional powertrains, battery electric buses and the transport system in which they operate need much more preparation to perform to their optimum level. Beyond even more careful operational planning, the vehicles in the system need to be more thoroughly specified for and managed towards operational demands. They also need to have a battery configuration that harmonises with the chosen charging infrastructure. The fully electric Scania Citywide offers fast in-route charging and is therefore perfectly suited to operations with demands for high passenger capacity and maximum vehicle availability.
