Scania R 450 named the most efficient truck 2018
17 JUNE 2018
Encamión, the leading Spanish truck news website, has named Scania R 450 Highline the “Most Efficient Truck 2018”.
The award is based on the results of the magazine’s vehicle tests over the past year, in which the Scania R 450 showed outstanding performance. In the testing scenario, 40-tonne truck and trailer combinations were assessed in terms of fuel consumption on a 103-kilometre motorway route representing typical long-distance transport operations.
The new generation Scania truck clocked an average fuel consumption of 25.19 litres/100 km. This is a six percent improvement over results recorded by Encamión in its tests of a Scania R 450 Topline two years earlier. The magazine attributes the success of the new Scania R 450 to its cruise control system and improved aerodynamics, stating that the truck is “not only efficient, but also simple to operate”.
