The TRATON group, which includes Scania and MAN, believes the EU’s target of cutting carbon emissions from heavy trucks over 16 tonnes by 15% by 2025 can be achieved largely with conventional engine technology but the much tougher target of a 30% reduction by 2030 will require significant sales of alternative drive trains, mainly battery electric.
Maritime Transport has ordered more than 200 new vehicles, including Next Generation Scanias, to enter its fleet later this year.
