Scania Decarbonises Heavy Transport


Scania represents the sustainable and electric transportation of the future at IAA 2022. 50% of all new vehicles sold are anticipated to be electric by 2030.

Sustainable transport system

Among highlights, Scania premieres its new electrified tractor for regional transport operations, its powerful solutions comprising digital and connected services, and its charging solutions.

Scania’s purpose is to drive the shift to a sustainable transport system heading for 100% electric transport.

Fourteen vehicles, mostly electric, will be displayed at today’s IAA transport trade fair.

These encompass a versatile range of vehicles that are up and running for most applications.

We have recently delivered an electrified timber truck to a customer in northern Sweden.

Well-to-Wheel perspective

At Scania, we are working to decarbonise across scopes, from our industrial operation to our products when they are in use.

When measuring our climate impact, we always take the Well-to-Wheel perspective, also factoring in the origin of the energy used.

Through our Science Based carbon reduction targets, there are clear goals for and defined priority areas for achieving these.

“As we ramp up vehicles with zero tailpipe emissions we are increasingly focusing on other sources of emissions.”

We’ve identified four “hotspots” – batteries, steel, aluminium and cast iron – which together account for more than 80 % of carbon emissions emanating from the supply chain.

No excuses

Scania Super, the new (and final) powertrain for combustion engines, delivers fuel savings that typically will reach 8% for long-haulage customers.

This new powertrain will be demonstrated in several vehicles at IAA.

From analyses to complete charging solutions.

“Going forward, we offer a total turnkey solution for our electrified customers.

A solution that is scalable for the future.

There are no longer any excuses not to start the transition to zero-emission vehicles,” concludes Levin.
