So, the bus module is an eight-meter monolithic block with cylindrical batteries placed under the floor. Its weight does not exceed 8 tons, which allows it to travel a distance of up to 245 km on a single charge. At the same time, the front and rear axles, equipped with electric drives, are universal and act as the basis for any of the above structures.
Scania Chairman Henrik Henriksson said the prototype shown by the company is still far from ideal and needs to be carefully revised. According to the preliminary calculations of the functionary, the serial model of the unmanned Scania NXT may appear by 2030. But, despite this, he emphasized that many Technologyused by Swedish engineers are available today.
Henriksson also noted that Scania's innovation will not be able to build an urban transport system, which today is far from perfect, again. However, such a universal car is able to optimize traffic flows, as well as significantly improve the environmental situation in megacities.
