Scania wins prestigious award for its connected vehicle solutions

Scania has been named OEM of the Year 2017 at the TU-Automotive awards in Detroit; the most influential awards in the connected car industry.

The judges selected Scania based on Scania’s impressive culture and attitude towards opening up gated walls within the industry. The judges appreciated the innovative way of thinking Scania shows. They also highlighted Scania’s interesting usage for telematics through multi ecosystem.

“Scania has a strong commitment to developing and commercialising innovative connected solutions. We were the first in our industry to embed connectivity as a standard feature. Connected solutions have thereby been an integral part of our customer offering for many years. We can now effectively assist our customers in digitalising their businesses. Digitalisation and connectivity are fundamental in driving the shift towards sustainable transport,” says Mattias Lundholm, Vice President, Connected Services and Solutions at Scania.
