Scania will deliver 110 electric trucks to Swedish freight technology company Einride, according to a deal announced today. Einride’s order is the largest deal to date of electric heavy-duty vehicles in Europe for Scania. The fleet of 110 Scania trucks will be implemented throughout Europe during 2022 and the first half of 2023.
Einride (here’s the news about the agreement with BYD for the U.S. market) already has one of Europe’s largest heavy duty electric fleets, and will further expand their market presence with this partnership. «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». said Ellen Kugelberg, Chief Product Officer, Einride.
Fleet data collection for Scania electric trucks ordered by Einride
The full fleet of trucks will be built to Einride’s hardware specifications and powered by their operating system Saga that ensures electric shipping is efficient and optimised. Fleet data insights that are generated through the Saga platform will be provided to Scania for continued product co-development between the teams.
«We share the same vision of decarbonising heavy transport. It has been rewarding to work with Einride on joint new technical solutions and digital services that will sustainably advance our industry», commented Fredrik Allard, Head of E-Mobility, Scania.
