Scania first battery electric truck in Germany
Speaking of Scania, the group has sold the very first battery electric truck in Germany, namely to the customer Bona, which will use the truck as a city shuttle, making multiple trips a day to transport finished products from its production plant in the south of the city to its distribution centre in the north, a journey of six kilometres.
The Scania 25 P, winner of the Sustainable Truck of the year 2022 award in the Distribution category, stores its energy in five lithium-ion batteries, each with a capacity of 33 kW/h. Under optimal conditions, the drive batteries are designed for a range of up to 110 kilometres, which is more than enough for Bona’s use in the city of Limburg as that will average approximately 50 kilometres per day.
A truly green cycle
Additionally, by early 2022 the way the vehicle charges its batteries will be green too. Bona is now developing a charging station that will be fuelled by green electricity generated by a powerful photovoltaic system on the roof of the large hall of its Limburg facility. The fully electric truck is charged with direct current and is equipped with a charging capacity of 130 kW, which allows the batteries to be fully charged in about an hour at 20 percent capacity.
«Moving to an emission-free vehicle is an important part of our broader sustainability journey and part of our commitment to be a good citizen. Due to high traffic the city of Limburg has a problem with excessively high nitrogen dioxide levels. The main source are diesel vehicles, and it is now extremely likely a ban for these vehicles is coming 1st of April 2022 for Limburg. With our emission-free truck we can make a valuable contribution in Limburg to lower nitrogen dioxide levels and to global decarbonisation», said Thomas Brokamp, Managing Director at Bona Germany.
