2,680 (2,975) buses and 1,722 (1,909) industrial and marine engines were delivered during the period.

The West European order intake is stable. The market activity in the Far East remains low.

The situation in Latin America is uncertain, in particular regarding the development of the Brazilian market during the next half year. Production rates at Scania’s Latin American factories are now being adapted to lower demand. Vehicle deliveries this year in Latin America are today estimated to be in the range of 15-20 percent lower than last year.
