Keltruck are the largest independently owned Scania Distributor in Europe and support Scania’s eco goals that 10% of their vehicle sales will be electric by 2025, rising to 50% by the end of this decade.
Keltruck West Bromwich and Coventry will aid this transition – to the benefit of our customers and the environment – by being the first Scania EV accredited workshops for the Midlands and South Wales.
A Scania electric vehicle has already been in the West Bromwich workshop for a pre-delivery inspection, with trained technicians overseeing the work and providing toolbox talks to the team. The vehicle has been supplied to a Coventry based customer, who will maintain this vehicle for all inspections going forward.
All technicians are manufacture trained at The Scania Training Centre, one of their worldwide Training Centres of Excellence as well as being an Institute of the Motor Industry Awards Centre, where instructors and trainers are all experts in their fields and all courses are delivered in accordance with Scania’s health and safety policies.
Russ Warner, Aftersales Director commented: “At Keltruck health and safety is at the forefront of everything we do and making sure our staff are fully trained and confident in maintaining these vehicles is very important to us.”
Keltruck’s Scania trained technicians are ready to support the updated battery electric trucks, which are available as both a rigid truck and as a trailer tractor – each sold as a turnkey solution with a wide range of tailored services. They offer a brand new driveline, improved batteries, faster and more powerful charging capabilities, 350 km range at 40 tonnes load and 250 km range at 64 tonnes max GTW.
The new triple electric machine powertrain also provides ample electromechanical PTO, ensuring smooth and reliable operation of temperature-controlled transports or power hungry applications such as hook lifts.
These vehicles mean goods transport providers can join the move to more sustainable ways of operating.
