2006: New bus generation

In conjunction with the launch of a new bus range, Scania presents a new market strategy for long-term profitability, focused on product segmentation based on customer needs. From 2006, Scania offers a complete bus and coach range for city, intercity and tourist traffic, operating on diesel or renewable fuels. The aim is to offer a selection of products that covers the demand mainly in Europe, whilst adding to the customer value with a comprehensive service and aftersales offer. Part of the strategy is to co-operate closely with a few preferred bodybuilders to develop a complete bus. Much effort was put into ergonomics of the new Scania driver station. Controls were designed to be intuitive, logically placed and provided with the right feel, and communicate what the vehicle is doing, to help drivers to make the right decisions and further boost driver appeal. Chassis are designed to facilitate bodybuilding, and central in the numerous innovative features is the new electrical system, which is based on CAN-bus technology. The new driveline incorporated a completely new range of Euro 4 engines based on EGR technology. Combined with new and revised gearboxes, the new engines offered excellent fuel economy and reliability with outstanding driveability. A 9-litre Euro 5 engine was available from late 2006.
