Vabis (Vagnfabriks Aktiebolaget) is established in Södertälje, Sweden, in December 1891.
Scania-Vabis becomes the general agent for Volkswagen.
Our successful Volkswagen era begins. Volkswagen AG acquires an interest in Scania.
Eventually, we integrate with the Volkswagen Group as a new brand.
We become a wholly owned subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group…
…and a year later we become a part of VW Truck and Bus.
VW Truck and Bus becomes TRATON – making us a subsidiary of one of the world’s largest commercial vehicle manufacturers in the industry. And a part of something bigger together with MAN, Navistar, Volkswagen Caminhões e Ônibus and RIO.
FOR US, IT’S SIMPLE.
THE FUTURE OF TRANSPORT IS SUSTAINABLE – MAKING IT KINDER TO PEOPLE AND PLANET.
