Together, Scania’s P-series and the new high-torque 13-litre EGR engines open new potential to specify compact, powerful trucks that are highly competitive in terms of weight.
EGR technology combines excellent fuel economy with the convenience of not requiring additives, leaving space on the chassis for extra fuel or other equipment. The broad P-series cab range enables space to be optimised for a multitude of applications.
The Scania P-series offers one of the broadest cab ranges in the market. The range includes short cabs, day cabs and sleeper cabs, as well as low-entry and crew cabs.
These cabs can be combined with innumerable chassis options and wheel configurations, including four frame strengths and four chassis heights.
More technical data, weights and dimensions can be found in the full product release below.
