The low floor Scania C-chassis meet the needs of operators on every continent. With total design and production control over chassis and powertrain, Scania delivers unrivalled reliability, durability and performance.
The highly dependable, durable, and robust powertrains enable fuel savings of up to 21%, achieved through a number of factors such as; engine efficiency (-6%), changed driveline position (-3%), improved gearbox (-3%), weight reduction (-3%) and the addition of a start/stop function (-6%).
The chassis come with dual charging capability and can be deployed in a smart charging system, e.g. meaning the bus can leave the depot fully charged and pre-climatised to maximise geographical range. It can then fast charge in-route via pantographs at one or more strategic stops, with charging taking only minutes, thereby maximising utilisation time. Also, this means it does not need to carry unneeded battery weight, resulting in less environmental impact and higher passenger capacity.
FRONT SUSPENSION TECHNOLOGY
Without compromising on passenger capacity, the new independent front suspension offers excellent passenger comfort and enables a wider aisle (900 mm). This results in new layout possibilities, increased passenger flow, space and accessibility.
Offers excellent ergonomics through all angle step-less seat adjustments, adjustable instrument panel, flexible switch placement . A lower instrument panel increases visibility. The buses have excellent drivability with a great turning radius, advanced driver assistance systems, and improved assisted handling, steering and braking. Also, they offer increased safety, a better climate system and good noise and vibration reduction.
The chassis enable a technical capacity of up to 100 passengers. This is achieved through very high axle load capacity, reduced weight, and by not carrying excessive battery weight. The high passenger capacity figure can contribute to a more efficient public transport system and potentially keep costs down by minimising total vehicle fleet investments.
Battery temperature control
Handled by a closed water cooling system that, in extreme ambient temperatures, is assisted by an electric heater or an AC cooling respectively. This AC is integrated in the battery cooling circuit but separated from the passenger and driver AC, resulting in an unaffected passenger environment. These solutions enable propulsion without power limitation in temperatures from -35°C to +40°, for all conditions up to 16% slopes.
The low floor Scania C-chassis is available in 2-axle and articulated versions, both with independent front suspension or rigid front axle.
