Scania deploys battery electric trucks in Norway

Norwegian wholesaler ASKO is using two battery electric Scania distribution trucks for its operations in Oslo, Norway. This pilot marks another milestone in the cooperation between Scania and ASKO with regard to electrified solutions for heavy transport. 

With the battery technology that is currently available, battery electric trucks need to drive shorter distances and be able to recharge batteries. In city deliveries, this can be done while loading or unloading goods. 

The trucks that will be used for ASKO’s operations have a gross vehicle weight of 27 t, a battery capacity of 165 kWh, giving them a range of 120 km, and are charged by 150 kW cable charging. (ben)
