Optimised for uptime and efficiency – Scania Streamline is back

The Scania Streamline is back and it is packed with intelligent, optimised technology to make a significant reduction in operator running costs, improve uptime, and provide greater profitability for customers.

Scania is proud to introduce the new Streamline R- and G-series cabs to Australia. Deliveries of these new versions begin immediately, with Euro 5 compliant engines available as standard. A limited number of Euro 6 engines are optionally available for customers wishing to specify the most advanced exhaust emissions standards.

The main visual changes are aerodynamic improvements to the cab corners and changes to the sun visor corners to improve airflow and cut noise.

Inside there are tasteful updates to the trim and Scania redesigned driver seats manufactured by Recaro.

Scania is also adopting low-drag gearboxes with friction optimised internals, a lighter and stronger single-drive rear axle (for 4x2, 6x2, 8x2 variants) and a revised and enhanced Scania Opticruise automated gearchange system with three Performance Modes designed to make the most of the low rev, high torque engines. A new dual battery set-up to improve starting reliability is also available as an option.

The first aerodynamically optimised Scania Streamline was introduced on the 3-Series models in 1991, and was highly successful in Australia.

“The 2013 Scania Streamline is the latest evolution of the Scania long haulage cab that has been continuously improved since the debut of the R-series in 2004, and the update in Europe in 2009 that won International Truck of the Year,” said Roger McCarthy, Managing Director of Scania Australia.

“With the new Streamline models in R- and G-series we are presenting meaningful aerodynamic enhancements to the cab, as well as mechanical and technical upgrades that help to reduce running costs for our customers, boosting their profitability.

“The adoption of the friction-reduced low-drag gearbox, revised and more intelligent Scania Opticruise gearchanging software, a new single-drive rear axle, freshened and improved interior appointments and comfortable driver seats, that include optional ventilation, provide both operators and drivers with a higher degree of comfort when owning and running a Scania.

“The changes are directly aimed at helping our customers generate more profit for their businesses,” he said.

“The changes we present today represent a significant improvement for our R- and

G-series long haulage models. All our trucks, including the distribution oriented

P-series, are able to benefit from the mechanical improvements, such as the low-drag gearboxes.


“In addition to the changes to the improved hardware, we are introducing our customers to ‘Ecolution by Scania’, which focuses attention on optimised vehicle specification, tailored Maintenance and Repair Programmes, driver training and follow-up coaching,” Roger said.
