EUROPE. Scania establishes truck depot EV charging company Erinion

Swedish commercial vehicle manufacturer Scania has announced the formation of Erinion, a new entity specializing in truck depot and destination EV charging stations.

To facilitate the transition to electric fleets and help fulfill Scania’s aim for 50% of its European sales volume to be electric by 2030, plans call for the installation of a minimum of 40,000 new charging points at customer locations by that year. Erinion expects to establish market presence in Sweden, Norway, the UK, the Netherlands, France and Germany before a global rollout.

Scania says its research, validated by customer pilot programs, reveals potential investment savings of up to 50% and operational savings of up to €15,000 per truck per year with use of its dedicated depot charging infrastructure and operational services.

“With our solution, a specialized charging unit takes care of the hardware, software, financing and operational services required to operate charging at scale with superior quality and cost efficiency,” said Jonas Hernlund, Head of Energy and Infrastructure at Scania.
