P124 CB8x4HZ 400, R144 LA4x2NB 530 – what do the letters mean?

The type designations of the Scania 4-series are based on the chassis class concept and to other customer-oriented factors. The models launched so far belong to the C- and L-classes. C-class vehicles are intended for tough on- or off-road use at GVWs up to 150 tonnes. L-class vehicles are designed specifically for highway operation at up to 60 tonnes.

2nd section, chassis: R144 LA4x2NB 530

Chassis class

Depending on the strength and build-up of the frame and chassis components,

Scania 4-series trucks are organised in chassis classes:

C = mostly low-mileage operation on- or off-road requiring high ground clearance

and good mobility at gross weights up to 150 tonnes

L = mostly high-mileage highway operation at gross weights up to 60 tonnes.

Other chassis classes will follow.

Chassis adaptation

Two basic chassis designs are available:

A = tractor (N.B. first A)

B = basic (N.B. first B)

Chassis height

4-series chassis will be available in several relative heights:

N = normal

H = high Other frame heights will follow.

Wheel configuration

A large number of wheel configurations will cover all needs in the heavy segment

(other configurations will follow).

L-class 4x2 and 6x2


A = leaf front (parabolic on L-class), air rear (N.B. second A)

B = air front, air rear (N.B. second B)

Z = parabolic or multi-leaf springs all-round
