Scania has outlined its electrification roadmap that will see the company have a new electrified product available annually.

Scania already has fully electric trucks and buses on the market that have a range of up to 250km per charge, and it says it can expect an expanded range of up to 500km in four to five years.

Scania has signed up to do its part to keep global warming under 1.5 degrees. It has approved Science Based Targets for 2025 and signed The Climate Pledge, committing to be fully net-zero by 2040.

These commitments cover emissions from both its own operations and from when its products are used by customers – where 96% of the total emissions from operations and products are generated.

In 2022, Scania will release an updated, 36-tonne PHEV, with an all-electric range of 60km after 30 minutes of charging.

In 2023, it will have heavier BEV trucks capable of running for four hours with 40 tonnes gross weight or three hours with 60 tonnes gross weight, intended for regional transport.

In 2024, long-distance electric trucks, adapted for fast charging during drivers’ 45-minute rest breaks, will enter the market. These will be capable of running between four and four and a half hours, depending on whether the vehicle weighs 40 or 60 tonnes.

By 2025, it will be able to electrify most operations, including construction, mining, long haulage and timber trucks. This is also the year when 10% of its volume sales will be electrified.
