First deliveries scheduled in Australia from 2026

Scania has started sales of autonomous mining trucks to assist safer and more sustainable operations.

The firm’s 40-tonne autonomous heavy tipper is available for orders, with 50-tonne models expected to follow.

As a first step, Scania will start sales of its ‘autonomous mining solutions’ in Australia, with first deliveries and start of operation scheduled from 2026.

It says the next market in line will likely be Latin America, a region where it has a significant market presence in the mining segment.

Peter Hafmar, Vice President and Head of Autonomous Solutions at Scania said: “The transition from research and development to the launch of a commercial product is a major milestone for us and for autonomous heavy transport in general. This is the most advanced product Scania has put on the market so far.”
