Since their introduction in June 2022, Scania received about 640 orders for its full-electric medium-distance trucks. That’s why Scania sees “a strongly rising interest in these solutions”. Additionally, the 624 kWh of batteries installed means Scania provides for a major shift in electric trucks and their operability in regional operations.
