In the future, every transport can be electric. And for a more sustainable world, many of them will have to be. So, although electrification of shorter transports is already happening, as power infrastructure improves and batteries become more efficient, lighter and cheaper – the electrified range and capability will keep extending.
A successful industry transition depends on a delicate balance between both environmental and business sustainability, as well as maturity in technology and infrastructure. A balance best achieved together with our customers, our partners in energy and infrastructure – as well as the legislators in charge.
What does it mean for my business?
No matter if you run a huge fleet of buses or a small truck operation, we'll help you transition in a way that's sustainable for your business – when the time is right. Right now, or in a decade. With our holistic approach to electrification you always get more than just vehicles – quite literally. Financing, charging infrastructure, transport planning, maintenance, driver training and fleet optimisation are all pieces of the puzzle, and our solutions can cover every need.
Electric solutions – a new way to buy vehicles
Every electric vehicle sale is packaged as a solution to ensure you’re fully covered for electric operation. A turnkey solution that leverages everything from our vehicles and services, our partnerships with energy suppliers, to our experience and long term guidance.
Always ready for the road
You likely already know that an electric vehicle has far fewer moving parts than a combustion engine vehicle. And yes, this generally means fewer parts that wear or may break. But electric vehicle technology on this scale is also brand new, and besides from charging, individual implementations and long term maintenance practices are far from standardized between vehicle manufacturers. This puts new and different requirements on workshop skill sets, knowledge and certifications to support that technology. Our class-leading global service network ensures – either through hands-on responsibility or by supplying the support you need – that your electric Scania vehicles never stand still, unless for when you’ve planned for it. With an electric vehicle solution from Scania, together with a repair and maintenance contract, you can rest assured you’re never on your own.
Powered for your needs
Understanding when, where and how you’re going to charge or top up your batteries is key. And although there’s a growing number of public charging stations, the true cost saver in terms of energy is to use your dedicated charging stations as much as possible, supplied via your own energy contracts. If you already have a local preferred energy partner, we’ll gladly work together with them to get you covered. But if not, you can get everything you need from us together with our energy partners Engie and EVBox. We will help you not only plan for, finance, install and supply power to the charging stations you need – all tailored for your routes and transportation needs – but also help you set up contracts for delivery of clean renewable electric energy.
A partner, a problem solver and a trusted advisor
Electrified operation comes with a lot of questions, and unknowns that challenges your experience. So, a key part of our offering is providing you with answers and concrete solutions. That we will not only guide you through the complexity, but help you implement tailor made solutions for every possible aspect of your electrified operation. From financing and insurance, via data driven services like driver training and flexible maintenance to guidance on current and upcoming environmental incentives and regulations. To not only know and understand your operation, but every pitfall – and perhaps more importantly – every new possibility in regards to electrified transports in your local market. We tailor a holistic solution that lets electrification truly work – not only for your transports, but for your business. That’s why every electric vehicle sale also comes with a long-term relationship – and bundled with the services needed to maximise your return on investment.
Our electric range
The fact that we have an electric range with both trucks and buses signifies our sustained focus on one of the most important transitions our industry has seen – across all our various customer needs, and using a range of different technologies.
So follow our links below for more information about the battery electric trucks, the plug-in hybrid trucks, the battery electric buses and hybrid buses for both city and longer distance.
Scania introduces first commercial electric truck range
Scania today commercially launches its range of electric trucks, a milestone in its aim to be leading in the transition to a sustainable transport system. The high-performance plug-in hybrid and fully electric trucks initially focus on urban applications, including distribution to retailers. With Scania’s proven record in delivering premium diesel and renewable fuel trucks, the launch marks a significant step in the company’s development.
Electric trucks – increasingly compelling option
Transport buyers, cities and consumers are having a strong pull effect on the shift of the heavy transport industry to sustainable transport solutions, particularly electrification. This is creating a good upside on revenues at the same time as technological advances make the cost of operations much more favourable. It all adds up to the fact that electrification is a solution whose time has come.
How electric vehicles fit into Scania’s sustainability journey
The launch of Scania’s fully electric truck is a milestone on the company and its customers’ journey to a fossil-free commercial transport system. It also underlines the central importance of electric vehicle technology to Scania’s sustainability commitment. Scania is committed to achieving a fossil-free commercial transport system and electric vehicles are a crucial part of that journey.
