Crash testing an electric Scania truck

221 459 Megtekintés

Electric truck crash testing is not the same as that of a truck with a combustion engine. The energy from the impact needs to be distributed and should spread throughout the structure surrounding the battery. The desired state is that it deforms the plastic and distributes kinetic energy into less critical components.
Preparing for any crash test is a lot of work. It can take months of precision planning to get all the details just right. The real test takes place after numerous simulations have been carried out. “The actual crash test is ultimately only to confirm that our calculations were accurate,” says Test Engineer Jakob Leygraf at Scania R&D.

  • Ok, stupid question... It was a bad idea to put the gas tanks in the most likely spot to get T-boned, why are they putting the batteries in the same place? They're batteries, they have a lot more configurations possible.

  • Strange... Like inside that chassis there was no room for longitudinal installation of the battery pack in the center. Some engineers are pretty dumb when they don't take into account center of gravity... At least it looks the inner packs are protected via sandwich placing. But something tells me if the truck hits a pole the result won't be the same...

  • Thats the Saint Göran truck? Wow. A parasitic truck.

  • Seeing this VW, I remembered the good old days when Scania used SAAB in its tests, and SAAB used Scania trucks in its tests!!

    • Anja Leben, It was not me, nor was it my country that let saab and scania be sold! So I want you to fuck off with your present! The Swedes are the ones digging their own grave! "Poor people, they renounce their past, because they condemn their future"

  • Test with Scania R&D. showing to the world 👏👏👏 Scania

  • Perhaps the fuel tank cant enter into flames like ancient times, but you should know one thing, the battery can die, and no respond, so not just the car is damaged, the truck too without a power unit, so lets have a look how resistant this need to be to still working with smoke or get into sparks 😉

    • Since trucks are diesel, its impossible that the tank explodes or burns
