Advantage Austria Sweden energizes on  eHighway

11. December 2016

Team building riding an eTruck on Europe´s first stretch of electrified highway in Gävleborg region

The team of the Advantage Austria office in Sweden had the unique opportunity to experience the eHighway from a trucker’s perspective. The 2 km long test track is situated in the region of Gävleborg and driven  through  a research co-operation between Siemens and Scania with support from the innovative regional administration. Ernst’s Åkeri is operating  the test-trucks, a transport company with roots back in Austria. The project shows that there is great potential for building eHighways on a bigger scale throughout the most trafficked European highways. However, to make eHighways more common further partners are needed. Since one of Advantage Austria Sweden´s focus areas is the automotive industry, it will strive to stimulate the existing business relations and encourage Austrian stakeholders to become part of this highly promising project.
