IAA Commercial Vehicles, the 67th trade fair of its kind, is scheduled be held at Deutsche Messe’s Hannover Fairgrounds in Germany from September 20-27. And Scania is ready to present a complete line-up of its next-generation trucks.
This is no ordinary week for truck suppliers like Scania, or any other operator or in the commercial vehicle sector for that matter. The reason: September 20 marks the opening of the week-long IAA Commercial Vehicles motor show, a key trade fair that is held every two years with an expected 250,000 visitors.
Ready to showcase a whole range of next-generation vehicles, Scania is likely to make its presence felt, not least with the attractive L-series plug-in hybrid truck for urban distribution.
Housed in Hall 12, all of the vehicles that will be featured at Scania’s stand are run on alternative fuel. How better to demonstrate just how serious Scania is about leading the shift to sustainable transport?
On the long-haulage front, the remarkably fuel-saving R-series tractor will be on display along with the V8 gem with the spacious S-series cab: already a favourite among drivers.
Other highlights include: the 450 hp 8×4 from the versatile XT range, which is tailored for construction tasks; the L-series from Scania’s newly-launched urban range, with its unmatched visibility for challenging city traffic; the CrewCab fire truck; and a forestry truck.
Meanwhile the full range of city, suburban and long-distance buses will be on show, as well as the Scania Interlink: the first long-distance coach run on liquified natural gas.
