Erinion, fully owned by Scania, is at the forefront of electric mobility, offering intelligent depot and destination charging solutions.

Founded within Scania’s ecosystem, Erinion is dedicated to simplifying the transition to heavy duty EVs for fleet owners, operators and property owners, ensuring operational efficiency and sustainability.

Headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden, Erinion has established subsidiaries in five European markets and operates with a global perspective.

Importance of Regular Charging Points for Electric Heavy-Duty Trucks

Regular charging points for electric heavy-duty trucks are essential for the future of sustainable transportation. These trucks play a crucial role in reducing the carbon footprint of the transportation sector. Reliable and accessible charging infrastructure is vital for their widespread adoption, ensuring these vehicles operate efficiently without extended downtime.

The infrastructure maintains the productivity and reliability necessary for logistics and transport operations. Additionally, consistent access to charging facilities alleviates range anxiety, supports long-distance travel, and encourages more fleet operators to transition to EVs.

Addressing Market Challenges

The electric truck market is expanding rapidly due to advances in battery technology, stricter regulations and a heightened focus on sustainability. 

However, companies transitioning to electrification face significant challenges, including high upfront costs, range anxiety, long charging times and uncertainties about total cost of ownership (TCO).

Erinion addresses these challenges with purpose-built, efficient and reliable charging solutions, offering an end-to-end partnership for customers.

Meeting the Demand for Electric Truck Charging Infrastructure

Erinion aims to meet the growing demand for electric truck charging infrastructure.

By 2030, Erinion plans to install 40,000 charge points across Europe, contributing significantly to the projected need of 240,000-265,000 depot and destination charge points for an estimated 230,000 electric trucks.

Up to 90% of energy for electric trucks will be charged at these fleet hubs, which include depots, terminals or centres from which vehicles depart and return.

Key Benefits of Erinion's Solutions
