Scania enters electrification after announcing the marketing of the new electric and hybrid trucks. Both versions are primarily intended for urban use and will help Scania to participate in an area where competition is constantly increasing.
The electric version (BEV) is offered with 5 batteries with a total capacity of 165 kWh or 9 batteries with a total capacity of 300 kWh, depending on the user’s needs. The electric range reaches 130 km using 5 batteries. With the use of 9 batteries the autonomy reaches up to 250 km, depending on the load and the terrine moving the vehicle.
According to the Swedish company, one battery is mounted in the engine tunnel, with the other 4 or 8 mounted on the chassis. The efficiency of the electric motor reaches 230 kW corresponding to about 310 hp. Batteries charge DC chargers (CCS plug) up to 130 kW. The 5-battery version takes 55 minutes to fully charge, while the version with 9 takes less than 100 minutes.
Scania SEO, Henrik Henriksson stated
“In the coming years on an annual basis we will present new electric products for our entire range. In the coming years we will present purely electric trucks for long journeys.”

The truck has three battery packs with a total capacity of 90 kWh and can only use the electric motor to cover up to 60 km, depending of course on the load and route.
According to Scania, batteries can charge up to 80% in 35 minutes. The electric versions (BEV & PHEV) will be available in the L and P series, which are designed for urban activities. We recall that Scania is wholly owned by Volkswagen Group.
