HONGKONG, CHINA -- Scania recently launched the first European pure electric truck for the Hong Kong market, designed specifically for urban applications. With a range of up to 250 km, the Scania electric truck can operate during the whole day and still return safely to its home depot for overnight charging. If there is a need for an extended range, the driver can fast charge the truck over a break or during natural stops in operation.

Scania's all-electric trucks are available in two different versions: a 5-battery pack with a capacity of 165 kWh and a 9-battery pack with a capacity of 300 kWh. The 5-battery pack version has a range of 130 km.

Scania’s battery electric truck comes equipped with a CCS2 charging connector that allows the batteries to be charged with a 130 kW DC power supply in less than 55 minutes for 5-battery packs and 100 minutes for 9-battery packs. The truck can also be constantly charged through regenerative braking.

The original space where combustion engine was located is now the battery pack and the additional batteries are mounted on the chassis frame. Other components needed for fully electric propulsion, such as battery management units, battery cooling components, electrohydraulic steering system, electric air compressor and inverter are also mounted along the chassis frame.

The electric motors are designed for a total of 230kw (310HP) continuous power. The motor has two gears to provide high power over a wider speed span, thereby improving comfort. One of the major benefits with an electric motor compared with combustion engine is its high controllability. In practice, the customer will experience this through faster acceleration and response from the powertrain.

Scania’s new truck is equipped for a fully electric power take off. Instead of connecting auxiliaries to the interface that is usually located on the gearbox or engine, it is instead connected to an electrical connection box, called a DC box mounted on the chassis. This gives a DC link of up to 60 kW PTO for body auxiliaries such as refrigeration systems and hooklifts. The Scania electric truck is available with the L- and P-series cab, both of which are designed for urban operations. The low-floor L-series cab, particularly, is purpose-designed for congested city conditions with unrivalled visibility.

“Sustainable emission-free transport is an increasing requirement for transport companies,” says Anders Lampinen, Director, New Technologies. “Acquiring an electric truck is not just an investment in the customer’s fleet, but also in its brand and market. The electric truck enables the customer to stay ahead of the competition, learn about infrastructural challenges and start adapting for the future.”
