Scania is introducing a new generation of Euro 6 V8 engines that represent a new standard in fuel consumption. The engines, which are available at 520, 580 and 650 horsepower, can reduce fuel consumption by 7 to 10 percent for customers with vehicles that have higher combined truck and trailer weights, higher average speeds, or both. The new engine generation is Scania’s response to the growing trend in the transport industry towards heavier, longer trucks.
Scania is continuing the major roll-out it began last year, with more and more services and products going into production and being launched to customers. The order books are now open on a new generation of Scania’s robust, five-cylinder engines, as well as the first variants of the new G cab. A number of services and performance enhancements are also being introduced, with most sharing a focus on improving productivity and total operating economy for European long-distance and forestry trucks.
