Energy efficiency

Offering the most efficient technology for our products combined with services is a core for Scania. Scania focuses on three aspects to provide customers with energy-efficient products and solutions: Powertrain performance, vehicle optimisation and fuel consumption.

Scania was the first manufacturer to deliver Euro 6 engines – the highest current emissions class – in Europe. This involved powertrains that make a major reduction in harmful emissions. Scania’s new product range also makes a significant contribution to lowering CO2 emissions. The new truck generation has our most energy-efficient engine range to date. Customers’ total operating economy is improved by a fuel consumption that is on average 5 percent lower than before, due to improved powertrains and better aerodynamics. Some 13,000 trucks of Scania’s new truck generation were sold in 2017. This equals savings in global CO2 emissions of well above 30,000 tonnes. Scania’s new truck range is well prepared for a fossil-free future with a platform that will take our customers into the future without significant adaptation needed. For the new truck range Scania also developed application-focused products that are more efficient and thus perform better with lower environmental impact. A significant component of making more efficient use of energy not only involves improving vehicles and adding features to reduce fuel consumption. Providing driver support through driver training and regular follow-up, as featured in our offering Ecolution by Scania, results in an average of 10 percent fuel consumption and CO2 reduction.
