Scania delivers 66-tonne electric truck to Norway

Scania has delivered Norway’s largest electric truck to the Verdalskalk limestone quarry in Verdal.

With a total weight of 66 tonnes, it will annually transport around 120,000 tonnes of lime from the quarry to the port for shipment.

The previous fossil fuel consumption on the route will be cut by 58,800 litres, and CO2 emissions by 156 tonnes.

The truck, a P 45 with three axles and 300 kWh battery capacity, is part of Scania’s Pilot Partner programme – a collaboration with selected customers on electric transport solutions not yet introduced on the market.

The configuration for Verdalskalk is the first delivery in the heaviest of truck segments, with a total weight of 66 tonnes.

There are already over 100 electric Scania trucks on Norwegian roads.
