Scania gave its first public viewing of its previously announced battery-electric trucks.

Available with either R or S sleeper cabs, the trucks have 624kWh of batteries with a charging capacity of up to 375kW – enough to add up to 300km after a one our charge.

On display was a Scania 45 R with the equivalent power of a 560hp diesel engine. Scania BEV trucks can initially be ordered as 4x2 tractor units or as 6x2 rigids with production scheduled for Q4 2023.
