Annual Scania report pushes towards a greener future

Heavy vehicle manufacturer Scania's annual report reflects on 2022 while eyeing a key mission in the year ahead

Scania Group’s annual report casts an eye on the year that was while also providing a clear glimpse into what customers can expect from the transport company in 2023 and beyond. 

Highlighting its key number from 2022 in its recently released annual report, the group reports 7,157 alternative fuels and electrified vehicles sold last year, out of a total sale of Scania products of 85,000 worldwide.

The business ended the year with 56,927 employees, 3,000 more than in 2021, and reported 97,420 tonnes of CO2 used, up slightly on 2021, but 44 per cent down on emissions recorded in 2015.

Highlights of 2022 included the testing of fully autonomous vehicles on public roads in Europe with HAVI Supply Chain using a vehicle to transport commercial goods between its logistics hubs.

The launch of the Super-based power train is another success recorded in the report. The new engine is achieving a fuel-saving of up to eight per cent and a Scania truck powered by the new set up wone Germany’s renowned 1,000 Points comparative test and a 13-litre Super-based powertrain scooped the Green Truck award 2022.

For Scania buyers, the launch of the My Scania and Scania Driver digital platforms, launched at the IAA trade fair, offered personalised digital data access to all Scania services in one place.

The past 12 months saw an increase in the business’ development of the biogas powertrain and a focus on reducing the carbon hotspots within the manufacturing supply chain with a move towards 100 per cent green batteries, steel, aluminium and cast iron for European production.

Scania president and CEO Christian Levin says in his introduction to the report that 2022 presented plenty of challenges for Scania.

“2022 was a tough year for Scania. Just as it looked as though the supply problems of the previous year were beginning to be resolved, a new wave of economic and political turmoil swept over Europe and the rest of the world, with Russia’s invasion of Ukraine leading to an energy crisis and a spike in inflation and interest rates,” Levin says.

“As a result, our truck business was hit by a range of ongoing problems, from component shortages to a lack of drivers, causing disruption in our delivery flows to customers.”

Reflecting on the year that was, Levin says the business had some success.

“When I look back at what Scania has achieved this year, I see a company that lives not just by its words but through its actions,” Levin says.

“The pilot partnerships we have engaged in through the year to develop our BEV (battery electric vehicles) trucks are a great example of this.”

The Scania business includes trucks, buses and coaches, power solutions, service and financial services. It reported an operating income of 12,375 million Swedish Krona (1,763 million AUD).
