Next step in our development journey is to find solutions also for long haulage.. In the ZEFES project we will test both BEV and FC solutions for this segment and this will be an important contribution to our own development.
What in ZEFES?
Scania will operate two battery electric trucks and one fuel cell truck in different applications across Europe. Scania will investigate the feasibility of a trailer with its own battery where the purpose it to increase the vehicle range and finally develop a tractor for an extra high trailer which requires a lowliner solution where the connection to the trailer is lower than usual
“The ZEFES project will contribute to the development and test of zero emission solutions for the long haulage segment. In order to reach sustainable transport solutions and for Scania to drive the shift, the long haulage segment is an important part of the development.”
