2020 Scania - Electric
No, this is not about Scania as a manufacturer of trucks with pantographs. They will be in trial for some time to come. A two-kilometre test track has existed since 2016 near Gävle (Sweden) and a five-kilometre test track
between Frankfurt and Darmstadt since the end of 2019. The 230 masts required for this project are proof of the effort required for such a reloading facility.
Perhaps even a little crazier is a project near Stockholm, where straight rails are sunk about 10 centimetres into the ground, along which pantographs attached to the bottom of the truck are to slide. GPS and magnets will
help to use existing slots in the rails with the help of sliding contacts. This could then also be used by cars.
So something is happening at Scania. It's incredible how you have survived the first half of 2020. Already in 2019, for example, MAN was outperformed by 10.8 to 3 per cent, and by the end of June, with 4.2 per cent Scania
with more than getting off lightly. MAN was down 9.5 percent. Perhaps now we can understand a little better why Scania wanted to remain relatively independent and perhaps now, under the umbrella of Traton, it can develop
Scania has further improved the hybrid truck. They now give a pure electric range of 60 km and charge from 0 (on a hybrid it is possible) to 80 percent in 35 minutes. After all, you can charge the hybrid with up to 95 kW DC.
The battery has a total capacity of 90 kWh. The electric motor with 115 kW is located between a 9L Diesel engine of 206-265 kW (280-360 PS) and its gearbox.
This is the all-electric truck from Scania. It can be installed with either 165 kWh or 300 kWh capacity. The latter is said to give a range of (up to) 250 km, 130 km are said to be possible with the smaller battery. Charging is to
be done with CCS at up to 130 kW DC, which then takes 14 hours from 20 to 80 percent for the larger battery. The engine with a continuous max. output of 230 kW is connected to the rear axle via a two-speed gearbox.
Common auxiliary drives must now be operated electrically now.
