Scania introduces new truck range

Nov 07, 2016
Scania is introducing a new truck range, the result of ten years of development work and investments in the region of £1.75 billion.

Production of the new trucks will start immediately at Scania's final assembly plant in Sweden.  Initially the focus will be on vehicles and services for long-haul transportation, but additional options will be continually introduced as more Scania plants readjust and additional options emerge. 

"There is a tremendous amount of development work by our engineers behind this introduction," emphasises Henrik Henriksson, Scania's President and CEO. He said that the most noticeable feature will be the new cabs, “But the real innovation is that we are now introducing new technologies, services and insights that will help our customers gain an overview of both their costs and their revenues. Our goal is for our customers to be able to achieve sustainable profitability, regardless of assignment type or the conditions in which they work." 

Scania is launching its new range in phases after the first unveiling in Europe. Among the improvements Scania is introducing is a 5% reduction in diesel fuel consumption, thanks to factors such as improved powertrains and better aerodynamics.
