Swedish automotive company Scania has created a new company, Erinion, which is dedicated to providing private and semi-public charging solutions for electric trucks.  

The move is aimed at bolstering the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) by offering depot and destination charging facilities, which are essential for maintaining premium uptime for zero-emission fleets. 

Scania hopes to have 50% of its European sales volume comprising electric trucks by 2030, by which the continent is expected to have 230,000 electric trucks on the road.  

Erinion plans to install at least 40,000 charge points at customer locations by the end of this decade to support this growth. 

Industry research indicates that depot charging will become the main energy source for electric trucks, both for short and long-haul operations.  

Unlike public charging networks, depot and destination charging provide dedicated infrastructure at the customer’s base or other specific sites, offering benefits such as reliable charging schedules, increased vehicle uptime, and enhanced operational efficiency.

Erinion’s charging solutions promise to deliver optimised power levels and schedules, extending battery life and improving the overall efficiency of electric trucks.  

Additionally, charging during off-peak hours can lead to lower electricity costs, while destination charging can be utilised opportunistically during driver breaks or delivery times. 

Erinion will initially focus on establishing its presence in key European markets, including Sweden, Norway, the UK, the Netherlands, France, and Germany, with a global expansion to follow.  

The company’s brand-agnostic approach means that all businesses, regardless of their vehicle brand, can access Erinion’s charging infrastructure and services. 

Scania Group head of ventures and new business Gustaf Sundell said: “In the transition, the transport system will be redefined. Our new depot charging solutions company is a great example of an initiative that will play an important role for our customers in the future transport ecosystem when transitioning to electric transports.”  

According to a study conducted on behalf of Transport & Environment (T&E), Boston Consulting Group predicts that foreign electric competitors may capture 11% of the European truck market from European manufacturers by 2035. 

The NGO has urged legislators to put pressure on European truck manufacturers to increase the production of zero-emission vehicles and better equip them for global competitiveness.
