View the recorded press conference from Busworld 2015, in Kortrijkt, Belgium where Scania launched the new Scania Interlink bus and presented the widest range of buses and coaches with alternative fuels as well as introducing the partnership concept Scania Fleet Care.
The Scania Interlink Low Decker introduces a new concept in the market, the first normal floor complete gas-fuelled bus for suburban operations which is equally attractive for shorter intercity travel. “It offers a new level of flexibility for operators – a normal floor bus for suburban operations, airport shuttle transfers, intercity journeys and school bus assignments all wrapped in one,” said Anna Carmo e Silva, Director for Product Management and Presales at Scania.
All Scania buses are available for alternative fuels and at Busworld Scania underlined that it is high time to take action in curbing climate change. “We have to act, and we have to act now,” said Klas Dahlberg, Head of Buses and Coaches at Scania. “We belong to an industry that has the opportunity to be part of the solution and not part of the problem. We have solutions that are available – here and now.”
Scania offers a wide range of alternative fuels
Scania presently offers the widest array of alternative fuels for buses, including bioethanol, gas, biodiesel and HVO (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil). Additionally, the hybridised Scania Citywide Low Entry bus will soon be available as a Class II bus for suburban operations. Operators can hereby take better advantage of the hybrid technology for greater savings.
This broadened range is a manifestation of Scania’s commitment to the bus business, Klas Dahlberg stated. “I can assure you that we are moving full speed ahead and in line with the Scania philosophy, we will continuously improve our vehicles and services for better and better performance.”
