Who owns Scania engines?

Scania, the Swedish manufacturer of trucks and buses, along with its engines, is fully owned by the Volkswagen Group. This ownership has been in place since 2014 when Volkswagen acquired the remaining outstanding shares of Scania, making it a wholly-owned subsidiary.

Here’s a breakdown of the ownership structure:

  • Volkswagen Group: Owns 100% of Scania AB through its subsidiary, Traton SE.
  • Traton SE: A holding company within the Volkswagen Group, specifically focused on commercial vehicles. It also owns MAN Truck & Bus, Volkswagen Caminhões e Ônibus, and Navistar.

Therefore, while Scania operates as a separate brand, its engines and other products are ultimately owned by the Volkswagen Group.
