Scania’s massive investment in electric powertrains is starting to pay off with the Swedish brand signing a huge electruic truck supply deal this week.
It has been announced that Scania will supply 110 electric trucks to the Swedish freight-technology company Einride.
Einride is not your traditional truck customer, they describe themselves as being a leading provider of end-to-end digital, electric and autonomous shipping solutions.
“We are looking forward to the beginning of this vital partnership as we expand across Europe. These 110 trucks will make a substantial contribution to increasing our fleet, while we will continue to join forces with renowned industry players such as Scania to drive innovation and product development in the global transport industry.” – Ellen Kugelberg, Chief Product Officer, Einride.
Einride’s order is the largest deal to date of electric heavy-duty vehicles in Europe for Scania, and under the partnership, more electric Scania’s are expected to be handed over.
“We share the same vision of decarbonizing heavy transport. It has been rewarding to work with Einride on joint new technical solutions and digital services that will sustainably advance our industry.” – Fredrik Allard, Head of E-Mobility, Scania.
The 110 Scania electric trucks will be delivered later this year and into 2023 and will be built to Einride’s hardware specifications and powered by their first-of-its-kind operating system ‘Saga’.
They say the operating system ensures electric shipping is efficient and optimized.
Fleet data insights that are generated through the Saga platform will be provided to Scania for continued product co-development between the teams.
