Scania is a world-leading provider of transport solutions. Together with our partners and customers we are driving the shift towards a sustainable transport system. Our approach rests on the three pillars of Energy efficiency, Renewable fuels and electrification, and Smart and safe transport.
Founded in 1891, Scania now operates in more than 100 countries and employs 51,000 people. In 2019, Scania had a market share in Europe of 18.7 % and delivered 91 680 trucks, 7 7777 buses as well as 10 152 industrial and marine engines to its customers. Net sales totalled to over SEK 152 billion, of which about 20 percent were services-related. Scania is part of TRATON, together with MAN and Volkswagen trucks and buses.
The focus on reducing the global carbon footprint is growing bigger each day. A big part in achieving this, is the necessity of the electrification of the transport sector. Scania's contribution in this challenge is significant since it provides a wide electrification road map. Our portfolio includes hybrid buses and trucks, as well as battery-powered electric vehicles. We are also exploring other solutions such as continuous charging along electric roads (e-highways), and fuel cell trucks. Furthermore, renewable fuels and electrification can be applied separately or in combination. In the future, every transport can be electric. And for a more sustainable world, many of them will have to be.
Since Scania is an “end user” of power electronics and electric machines, its role in the project will be focused on supporting activities on a system level, e.g. vehicle level. Scania can contribute with the knowledge, experience and competence from the electrification of the heavy duty vehicle industry, such as trucks and buses.
As an end user, Scania has gained knowledge, experience and competence in the field of electrification, ranging from electrified vehicle level, down to a component level such as electrical machines, batteries and power electronic components. Therefore, Scania can provide test methods/specifications, relevant requirements, operational data such as drive cycles (electrical and mechanical load), boundary conditions etc. Furthermore, Scania could perform tests on components, which includes environmental testing, e.g. vibration and thermal cycling, and various electrical testing. If necessary, complementary tests on complete electrified vehicles can also be performed.
