Transport solutions provider Scania has established a new company dubbed Erinion, which will be engaged in delivering private and semi-public charging solutions for electric vehicles (EVs).

The new entity will offer solutions for depot and destination charging. Its aim will be to fast track the adoption of electric trucks in line with Scania’s goal of advancing the shift towards a sustainable transport system.

Scania’s move to create the new entity will result in the installation of a minimum of 40,000 new charging points at customer locations until 2030. Erinion will also bolster Scania’s e-mobility capabilities within the future transport ecosystem.

Scania Group energy and infrastructure head Jonas Hernlund said: “With our solution, customers get peace of mind and can focus on their core business, while a specialised charging unit takes care of the hardware, software, financing and operational services required to operate charging at scale with superior quality and cost efficiency.”

Erinion’s solutions are expected to help customers in seamlessly adopting zero-emission fleets with premium uptime. This is expected to be a significant factor in fulfilling the transport solutions provider´s declared ambition for half of its sales volume in Europe to come from electric vehicles by the end of the decade. 

Initially, Erinion will launch its market footprint in the UK, Sweden, Norway, the Netherlands, France, and Germany. A global rollout will follow in the future, said Scania.

Erinion will also empower Scania’s transport customers to leverage advanced integrated software and hardware, operational services, and support.

The purpose-built and modular solutions can be provided as a standard re-seller model with cash payments or a hybrid-flexible pricing model. This allows customers to combine down payments, financial leases, and rolling fees for service and maintenance.
