In its single biggest launch since the introduction of its new truck generation back in 2016, Scania is introducing a new engine platform and updates that are set to consolidate its position as a leading manufacturer of premium heavy trucks.
With its all-new 13-litre engine platform for Euro 6 vehicles, ranging from 420 to 560 hp, Scania’s powertrain promises fuel savings that typically will reach 8% for long-haulage customers. All engines have inherent HVO fuel capabilities and two of them can be ordered as FAME biodiesel versions. More iterations will follow for markets outside Europe and for biogas solutions. The new powertrain also includes new gearboxes and axles. Scania is also introducing an option for digital rear-view mirrors for increased safety.
Alexander Vlaskamp, Executive Vice President and Head of Sales and Marketing at Scania said, “What we introduce today is not only an engine platform but a major initiative for strengthening Scania’s industry-leading position within sustainable transport for the rest of this decade. Our strong focus on transport efficiency guides us in the shift towards a decarbonised world, a shift that will have a major contribution from our new powertrain.”
Alexander continued, “Renewable fuels and electrified vehicles will increase their share dramatically in the next few years, but we all still depend on combustion engines for our daily lives. And that is why Scania’s new engine is so important, since it will contribute towards substantial decarbonisation for the rest of this decade.”
