Which country owns Scania?

While Scania, the manufacturer of trucks and buses, is headquartered in Södertälje, Sweden, it’s not directly owned by any country. It is currently owned by a private company, the Volkswagen Group, which is a multinational corporation headquartered in Wolfsburg, Germany.

Here’s a breakdown of ownership:

  • Scania AB: Swedish manufacturer of trucks and buses.
  • Traton SE: A subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group, headquartered in Germany, that owns 100% of Scania AB.
  • Volkswagen Group: A multinational corporation headquartered in Germany that owns Traton SE.

Therefore, although Scania has its roots in Sweden and maintains its headquarters there, it’s ultimately owned by a private, multinational corporation.
