Axles

The low entry Scania K-chassis is available in several variants enabling it to meet different operational demands.

FLOOR LEVEL

The low entry point and flat floor up to the central doors area offer the same accessibility as for the low floor version in the front and middle sections. In the rear section a higher floor creates better view for passengers. The widened aisle contributes to increased accessibility, comfort and passenger flow.

Design features

The low entry Scania K-chassis meet the needs of operators on every continent. With total design and production control over chassis and powertrain, Scania delivers unrivalled reliability, durability and performance.

CHASSIS FRAME - The strengthened front axle, in combination with the ability to now use wider tyres, means that load capacity is increased from 7.1 to 8.2 tonnes. This allows for higher passenger capacity. It also enables optimised weight distribution between the front and rear axles, which is not least important for electrical and gas vehicles. Additionally, chassis weight has been reduced by 2% (>100 kg) without compromising on robustness, contributing to lower fuel consumption.

POWERTRAIN TECHNOLOGY - The highly dependable, durable, and robust powertrains enable fuel savings of up to 21%, achieved through a number of factors such as; engine efficiency (-6%), improved gearbox (-3%), weight reduction (-3%) and the addition of a start/stop function (-6%).

CLIMATE SYSTEM - Our highly efficient climate system minimises energy consumption, regardless of climate. The cooling recovery system returns energy back into the system providing energy efficient airflow and climate control. The cooling system is also separate from that of the powertrain, resulting in a comfortable environment at all times.

ARTICULATION CONTROL – Scania has an industry-leading control system for articulated variants that uses wheelspin control, traction control, articulation damping system and a patented sway control. This prevents instability and jack-knifing while also facilitating handling, manoeuvrability, and safe driving in slippery conditions and during lane changes at high speeds..

DRIVER AREA - Offers excellent ergonomics through all angle step-less seat adjustments, adjustable instrument panel, flexible switch placement . A lower instrument panel increases visibility. The buses have excellent drivability with a great turning radius, advanced driver assistance systems, and improved assisted handling, steering and braking. Also, they offer increased safety, a better climate system and good noise and vibration reduction.

FRONT SUSPENSION TECHNOLOGY - Without compromising on passenger capacity, the new independent front suspension offers excellent passenger comfort and enables a wider aisle (900 mm) – resulting in new layout possibilities, increased passenger flow, space and accessibility. The new rigid front suspension also increases passenger capacity and offers good passenger comfort.
