Four vehicles are on display at the Scania stand (no. 602 in hall 6) at this year’s Busworld. Scania Citywide – showcasing models LE and LF – is a new family of stylish city and suburban buses that take on the styling theme pioneered by the Scania Touring, which is also featured at the stand. The new Scania OmniExpress 3.20 coach, presented in April this year, is also on display. The focus this year is on Scania's offerings, including complete buses as well as full parts support and service tailored to each customer’s needs.
Scania's extensive sales and service network, with more than 1,000 outlets in Europe and some 1,600 worldwide, provides Scania customers with comprehensive support.
Scania assumes complete responsibility for keeping the vehicle fleet in shape and on the road, including running operators’ workshops and servicing other vehicle models.
Scania Driver Training can be tailored to individual needs – both in basic driver skills and training – that meet the compulsory training required by European Union authorities. Personal driver coaching and follow-up can also be provided, if required.
To help operators minimise CO2 emissions, Scania has introduced the Ecolution by Scania concept. Minimising CO2 emissions also means lowering fuel consumption for any particular type of transport. Ecolution by Scania focuses on maximising vehicle efficiency, preferably operating on one of the renewable fuels that Scania supports: biodiesel, bioethanol or biogas. Scania also ensures that the vehicle remains in top shape through careful maintenance, as well providing driver coaching for optimum driving performance.
Via Scania Fleet Management, vehicles and drivers can be monitored on a web portal, which provides several reporting options, including a full environmental report on CO2 emissions.
