Scania Streamline – saving up to 8% of fuel in style

Jun 24, 2013
Scania Streamline is the name of Scania G- and R-series long-haulage trucks that are optimised for low fuel consumption, featuring new low-drag looks and full air deflector kits.

A new version of Scania Opticruise features a choice of performance modes. To maximise fuel savings, the new Economy mode is fully integrated with Scania Active Prediction.   Potential fuel savings in long-haulage are up to 8% with the new, more efficient second-generation Euro 6 engines. Corresponding savings for Euro 3/4/5 are up to 5%.

 

New services are designed to help drivers and operators in their daily work, as well as during interaction with the workshop. To boost uptime and reduce the time required for a workshop visit, Scania workshops now have access to remote downloading of diagnostic data.

 

Henrik Henriksson, Executive Vice President in charge of Sales and Marketing at Scania, said:  

“Scania has invested a lot of ingenuity and know-how in perfecting the truck range for Euro 6 and we are very pleased with the results. We note with pride that our Euro 6 engines use less fuel than their Euro 5 predecessors in operation with customers – and the latest Euro 6 engines are even better.  Scania's long-standing focus on fuel economy pays off handsomely and our customers can rest confident that we do our utmost to keep them competitive in the transport business.”

 

Lars Stenqvist, Senior Vice President Vehicle Definition summarised the potential savings: "Scania's new second-generation 13-litre Euro 6 engines are 2-3% more economical than the first ones. Scania Opticruise and Scania Active Prediction contribute 2-3% each. In addition, we have improved the aerodynamics and reduced drag in our gearboxes. Even though you cannot simply add the figures, we estimate that the potential saving for a European Euro 6 long-haulage customer could reach 8%. For customers in markets without access to topographical map data, the potential is almost 5%.”
