Scania will deliver up to 75 battery electric trucks to ASKO over the following three years. Earlier this year, ASKO started operations with four hydrogen powered fuel cell electric Scania trucks and in February, ASKO added two battery electric Scania distribution trucks to its fleet.
ASKO has now – within its three-year framework agreement with Scania for 2020-2022 – stated its intension to order up to 75 battery electric trucks.
”Our goal is to have an emission free fleet of trucks by 2026. The battery electric trucks from Scania are an important step on the journey towards fossil free transports for ASKO,” says Torbjørn Johannson, Chairman of the Board, ASKO NORGE AS.
Scania recently presented its approved Science Based Targets, which not only include a dramatic reduction of its own carbon emission but also its clear quantified aim to ensure reduced emissions among its customers.
Scania’s official launch plans for its battery electric trucks will be presented later in 2020.
