Scania premieres at IAA 2010

• Truck range with improved productivity • New tools to optimise fuel economy • V8 truck range with unique identity • Construction trucks with greater mobility • New gas engines for trucks and buses • Innovative powertrain technology • Extended service offer, including rental

The new R-series – International Truck of the Year 2010, the associated improvements on the P- and G-series and the new V8 truck range will all feature on the Scania stand, at the IAA in Hanover in September.

On display will also be a range of components showing state-of-the-art technology unique to Scania, including the new high-output V8 platform and a new range of 9.3-litre gas engines.

The wide variety of services that can be tailored to suit each and every application and customer preference, including rental vehicles for construction as well as long-haulage will be much in evidence on the stand.

The new R-series makes its debut at the IAA with all the innovations that took truck productivity and comfort to a new level at launch earlier this year.

Technological enhancements include the new much appreciated Scania Opticruise automated gearchanging system.

Scania Driver Support provides on-board assistance for drivers eager to hone their driving skills to perfection, while squeezing the most out of every drop of fuel.

New interior fittings bring fit and finish to a new level and the innovative pullout bed offers up to 900 mm of luxury accommodation. Many of these new items are available on the P- and G-series as well. P-, G- and R-series trucks are all represented on the stand.

These and other technical improvements, along with the new creature comforts that enhance driver appeal, all serve to support the driver and promote more efficient driving. This will contribute to lower fuel costs, higher safety, better uptime, lower operating cost and maximum profitability for the operator.

Scania's new V8 truck range features exclusive unique styling traits and numerous luxury options.

Topping the range is the remarkable R 730 with the new 16.4-litre V8 with 730 hp, 3,500 Nm and stunning performance. The 500, 560 and 620 hp engines remain based on the 15.6-litre V8 platform. Two V8 prime movers will be shown: R 500 and R 730.

The Bauma exhibition (for construction vehicles, held earlier this year in Germany) was the first public outing for Scania's extended construction range and the new Scania R 730 heavy-haulage tractor unit gained a great deal of attention.

Other news includes reinforced transmission components, new hub reduction and progressive parabolic springs, as well as a combined traction panel on the dashboard for convenient diff-lock operation and traction control.

At Bauma, the light-weight 8x4 mixer - lightest on the market, the 10x4 mining truck with a 66-tonne GVW and 46-tonne payload capacity, and the rental tipper offered on the German market, all demonstrated the breadth of Scania's offer. At the IAA Scania will show a G 480 8x4 tipper offered complete with bodywork.

Powertrain Technology

Scania's lead in powertrain technology is amply evidenced with all engine ranges and configurations on display. Adjacent to the new R 730 truck is the new 16.4-litre V8 engine and reinforced overdrive gearbox with Scania Opticruise and Retarder.

Scania's new common-rail engine platform with several innovative solutions paves the way for the technologies used for Euro 6.

Brand new are the 9.3-litre 270 and 310 hp gas engines now available on trucks as well as buses. The engines, which comply with EEV, are based on the latest Euro 5 EGR engine platform.

They feature compact installation with eight chassis-mounted composite gas tanks and a capacity of 640 litres on trucks. Roof-mounted aluminium tanks with a capacity of 1,200 litres are available for buses.

The engine displays also include Scania's highly efficient ethanol engine that operates according to the diesel principle.

Alternative and renewable fuels feature strongly on the stand. Scania diesel engines are compatible with up to 100% biodiesel, which is a viable alternative for all types of operation. For urban conditions, Scania has two strong renewable offers: ethanol gives the convenience of a liquid fuel; the new gas engine can operate on biogas as well as CNG (compressed natural gas).

All vehicles displayed are linked to a customised service package that illustrates how Scania partners with its customers to work out the most profitable solution with the best possible operating economy for each individual transport application.

The services include Scania's rental truck scheme, which in Germany and Austria comprises tractors and semitrailers, and in Germany also a range of 3- and 4-axle tippers.

 

New fleet management products provide monitoring and analysis tools for vehicle and driver performance, as well as an environmental report, making it easy for operators to continuously keep track of how the business is developing.
