The Scania gas-fuelled P-series distribution truck has been selected as Sustainable Truck of the Year 2018 in Italy.
Under the auspices of the Italian trade magazine Vado e Torno, in collaboration with the Polytechnic University of Milan, the awards jury examined all 2017 product news.
The jury noted that gas is increasingly seen as the road ahead to sustainable transport. “For Scania, sustainability and addressing the environmental footprint of transportation is a key element in its strategy,” it said. “Scania’s research and development each day focuses on reducing fuel consumption and operational costsr. The fully automated Opticruise transmission, combined with 5-cylinder 280 and 340 hp compressed gas engines, shows Scania’s awareness of its customers’ needs. Moreover, drivability in the gas distribution truck reaches the highest level ever.”
