It is a self-propelled electric vehicle that can be used as a bus and carry passengers in the morning and at night. And used to carry goods during the day as well as garbage at night.
The front and rear drive modules can be connected to units adapted for passenger transportation, freight distribution or garbage collection, the company writes in a press release.
The NXT should be designed for the 2030s and the following years.
– NXT is a vision of future transportation in cities. Several of these technologies are not yet mature. But it was important for us to build a conceptual vehicle to make visible what is within our reach, Scania CEO Henrik Henriksson wrote in the press release.
The eight-meter bus module is constructed of composite materials, which significantly reduces weight.
Cylindrical cell batteries are located under the floor. This contributes to a better use of space and better distribution of weight.
The vehicle has a weight of less than 8 tons, and the range is estimated with today's batteries for 245 kilometers.
