The high floor Scania K-chassis meet the needs of travel operations on every continent. With total design and production control over chassis and powertrain, Scania delivers unrivalled reliability, durability and performance.
The strengthened front axle means that load capacity is increased from 7.5 to 8.2 tonnes. This allows for higher load capacity. It also enables optimised weight distribution between the front and rear axles, which is not least important for electrical and gas vehicles. Additionally, chassis weight has been reduced by 2% (>100kg) without compromising on robustness, contributing to lower fuel consumption.
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%), improved gearbox (-3%), weight reduction (-3%) and the addition of a start/stop function (-6%).
Our highly efficient climate system minimises energy consumption, regardless of climate. The cooling recovery system returns energy back into the system providing energy efficient airflow and climate control. The cooling system is also separate from that of the powertrain, resulting in a comfortable environment at all times.
Scania buses have advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) including vulnerable road user collision warning, blind spot warning, adaptive cruise control, attention support, and advanced emergency brake. Further, electro-pneumatic parking brake technology avoids unintentional bus motion and thus potential accidents. Through reinforced body and chassis construction, our buses are built to protect passengers, drivers and sensitive components.
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.
FRONT SUSPENSION TECHNOLOGY
Without compromising on passenger capacity, the new independent front suspension offers excellent comfort. The new rigid front suspension also increases passenger capacity and offers good comfort in combination with a wider and lower aisle for double decker.
The high floor Scania K-chassis is available in 2-axle and 3-axle versions, both with independent front suspension or rigid front axle. For more options see also Scania Touring for travel operations.
