Scania Aims to Help Companies Meet ESG Goals
The much-awaited Scania battery electric truck has arrived in Malaysia and Scania Southeast Asia has started selling it with the aim of helping customers meet their Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) goals.
Customers and the media were invited for the recent preview of its battery electric truck at Scania Malaysia Bukit Jelutong, Shah Alam.
Available as a rigid truck and trailer tractor, Scania offers a brand-new driveline, improved batteries, faster and more powerful charging capabilities, 350km range with 40 tonnes load and 250km range at 64 tonnes max gross tonnage weight (GTW). The new triple electric machine powertrain is said to provide ample electromechanical power take-off (PTO), ensuring smooth and reliable operation of temperature-controlled transport or power-hungry applications such as hook lifts.
The battery packs are assembled in-house at Scania to ‘perfectly fit the strengthened chassis and new placement of the charging interface’ on the right side behind the driver’s door. Closely connected is the completely reworked heating and cooling system, keeping powertrain and battery components at their ‘perfect operating temperature’ and allowing ‘excellent fingertip control’ of the cabin temperature through digital platforms. The aerodynamics of the cab is said to be further improved with wind deflector extensions to ensure every kWh provides the maximum distance and range.
“Scania has a wide range of products and services to address our customers’ ESG objectives. One of them is Scania Ecolution way-of-working with our customers to reduce CO2 emissions over the years. Through a total solutions approach, we could provide the best safe and smart technology and services resulting in the best fuel efficiency. All our vehicles are also FAME-prepared up to Biodiesel 100 to leverage on renewable fuel opportunities in this country. Now with battery-electric solutions, Scania continues to be a proud leader in driving the shift towards a sustainable transport system with our customers. Together with them, we hope to continue our sustainable partnerships and take charge towards achieving ESG goals,” said Heba El Tarifi, Managing Director, Scania Southeast Asia.
Meanwhile, Che Ibrahim Che Ismail, Chairman, Mekar Angkut Sdn Bhd, said the future of transport was never this complex but Scania made it easier to adopt battery electric solutions through a consultative sales process. “I now understand that after identifying our sustainability targets, operation and pre-requisites, a turnkey solution is provided. From charging to battery warranty, from financing to insurance, from repair and maintenance contract to driver training, the battery electric truck from Scania is optimised to suit my operations. I look forward to working more with Scania towards getting one.”
