Just as your business is unique, so too is the city you operate in. Urban driving involves many starts and stops, frequent climbing in and out of the cab, and the constant need to keep track of other vehicles and pedestrians around the truck while driving. The Scania L-series is purpose-designed for congested city conditions.
With its lower entry it is designed to minimise strain on your drivers’ knees and arms. The new L-cab provides easy, one- or two-step access into the cab. It also has kneeling as standard on the one-step version and as an option on the version with two-steps. With kneeling, the front air suspension will drop 100 mm as soon as you apply the parking brake.
Keep track of nearby pedestrians
Our new L-series cab puts you on the same level as the other vehicles travelling the city streets. The optional City Safe Window low down on the passenger door improves the chance of detecting children, pedestrians and cyclists near the truck.
Furthermore, the driver sits low with an optimal view forward and to the sides thanks to the low dashboard and low window sills. The compact mirror housings and wide gap between the A-pillar and the mirrors maximise the field of vision.
The Scania L-series has excellent cross-cab access. The cab sits low and far forward on the chassis and the engine tunnel is out of the way. This makes it easy for the driver and crew members on the extra seats in the centre to climb in and out on either side of the vehicle.
The 7-litre engine is a lightweight, robust and modern inline six engine with a swept volume of 6.7 litres. It offers up to 1200 Nm of torque already from 1050 r/min in its most powerful 280 hp iteration. It features Scania´s in-house designed exhaust gas aftertreatment system with efficient SCR-technology and can be fitted with an engine-driven Power Take Off (PTO).
