The high floor Scania K-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 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%).
The new power supply architecture comes with improved electronic control units (ECUs) and functions that improve performance and facilitate diagnostics for repair and maintenance. It also enables new functionality within ADAS, e‑mobility and autonomous transport systems.
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.
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.
