With a completely new truck range Scania is setting a new standard for what is premium in the transport industry. “It is with hearts bursting with pride that my colleagues and I are presenting the products and services that will carry us and our customers far into the next decade,” says Henrik Henriksson, President and CEO of Scania.
With the new truck generation Scania takes a giant step into the future, introducing new technologies, services and insights that help customers to get an overview of both costs and revenues. Sustainable profitability, regardless of the type of assignment or the conditions they work in; That’s Scania´s goal for its customers to achieve.
“Customer first is a true core value for Scania. While developing this new truck, our customer’s operations and their resource efficiency has been at the centre in every single step we have taken; from research and development, sourcing and production to tailoring the services meeting up to each customer´s needs. This will take us closer to our aim – that in partnership with our customers change the world of transport,” Henrik Henriksson declares.
The new truck range is the result of ten years of development work and project costs of more than 2 billion Euro. With it, Scania is extending its offering and can now, thanks to its unique modular system, more performance steps, connectivity and a comprehensive palette of productivity enhancing services, offer sustainable transport solutions that are precisely customised for each type of customer in the highly competitive transportation industry.
From now on, Scania’s customers will always be able to carry out their work in the most sustainable and profitable way, regardless of industry and area of application.
“This is not just a new truck range. It´s also a unique, ingenious toolbox of sustainable solutions in the form of products and services that Scania is first in the industry to really be able to deliver. We are directly focusing on our main task: to give our customers the necessary tools for achieving profitability in the one business that really means something to them, namely their own,” Henrik Henriksson continues.
Among the improvements Scania is introducing in the new trucks is a 5% reduction in fuel consumption, thanks to factors like improved powertrains and better aerodynamics.
Production of the new trucks has already started. Initially the focus will be on vehicles and services for long-haulage transportation, but additional options will be continually introduced over the coming months, until the entire range is in place, throughout the world.
The new trucks are all connected, for the benefit of customers and drivers, but also for the planet. More than 200,000 connected Scania vehicles are rolling around the world and their number is rapidly increasing. These connected vehicles provide valuable insight into operating conditions as well as the necessary intelligence to develop vehicles for even better performance – useful insight for Scania´s continuous research and development work.
A strong position
“But of course, this new truck generation also builds on the values, strategies, techniques and innovations which for the past 125 years made Scania the industry leader we are today. We often say that Scania is a “small big company”. Something that distinguishes us is our exceptionally dedicated employees – and customers. This all puts Scania in a very strong position as we take our next important steps into the future.”
“This is undoubtedly the biggest investment Scania has made in its 125-year history. It is with hearts bursting of pride that I, and all my colleagues, are presenting the products and services that will carry Scania well into the next decade!” Henrik Henriksson concludes.
