Denmark’s largest retail company Coop will deploy a battery electric Scania truck in its city distribution operations. This is the latest example of Scania’s co-development of sustainable transport solutions with progressive customers. The Scania truck, with an estimated range of up to 140 km, is planned to go into Coop’s operations in the first quarter of 2021. The range can be extended with fast charging opportunities, for example while loading or unloading goods.

With gross vehicle weight of 20 tonnes where extra chassis weight is compensated by Danish Government regulation allowing up to 2 tonnes higher total weight for BEV, Scania truck powertrain is 230 kW electric machine with 2-speed transmission produicng 2150 Nm peak torque. It has 135 kWh Li-ion batteries with range up to 140 km depending on assignment/operation

With carbon emission free operations and virtually no noise pollution with the silent electric drive, the battery electric trucks are ideal in city distribution. A prerequisite for well-to-wheel emission free operations is that the electricity is sourced from non-fossil energy, which is broadly available in Denmark.

Scania’s official launch of its battery electric trucks will take place later in 2020. The company already produces battery electric buses and hybrid electric trucks and buses in addition to its broad range of vehicles that run on renewable biofuels.
