1,000,000 vehicles in 100 years

Earlier this year Scania manufactured its 800,000th vehicle since the company was founded in 1891. This figure comprises 89 percent trucks and 11 percent buses. At the current level of production, the figure could reach one million by the turn of the century. Approximately half the vehicles produced are still in day-to-day operation.

Whereas the first 100,000 vehicles took 75 years to produce, Scania has manufactured more than 200,000 trucks and buses during this decade alone. The 3-series is Scania's major product so far, accounting for close to 300,000 vehicles since the start of production in 1988.

In steps of 100,000 vehicles, production has developed as follows:

• 1966 100,000

• 1974 200,000

• 1979 300,000

• 1983 400,000

• 1987 500,000

• 1990 600,000

• 1993 700,000

• 1996 800,000
