Scania launches new truck range after 10 years of development

Scania

Scania is introducing a new truck range, the result of 10 years of development work and investments in the region of £17.6 billion.

With the new range, Scania is extending its offering and can now, thanks to its unique modular system, supply more performance stages, connectivity and a comprehensive palette of productivity-enhancing services as well as sustainable transportation solutions that are precisely customised for each type of customer in the transportation industry.

Henrik Henriksson, president and CEO of Scania, said: "It is undoubtedly the biggest investment in Scania's 125-year history."

Production of the new trucks starts immediately at Scania's final assembly plant in Södertälje.

Henriksson said: "There is a tremendous amount of development work by our engineers behind this introduction.

"The most noticeable features are of course 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.

"Our customers' vehicles always constitute a link within the bigger picture; Scania embraces this through quality, accessibility and a range of physical or connected services."

Scania is launching its new range in phases. The introductions will continue after the first unveiling in Europe, with more customer options, before the entire process concludes with simultaneous launches on markets outside 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.
