SCANIA MALAYSIA STRENGTHENS PRESENCE WITH RECORD TRUCK SALES IN 2018, PRIMED FOR A STRONG 2019
5 April, 2019, KUALA LUMPUR – Scania Malaysia sold 393 trucks in 2018, making it a record year for the 128-year-old Swedish heavy commercial vehicle company since it began its operations in Malaysia in the 1970’s.
“I would like to thank our customers for their continued strong trust in Scania. This is an endorsement of our trucks and the services’ ability to deliver the best fuel economy, safety, reliability and uptime as customers continue to appreciate the holistic and total solutions approach that we provide, especially when they look for the best profitability in the long term,” said Marie Sjödin Enström, Managing Director of Scania Southeast Asia.
“I would also like to thank the passionate team at Scania Malaysia for always putting the customers’ business in the centre of their daily concern. We will continue to grow with our customers in 2019, especially with the recent launch of the New Truck Generation and the introduction of Scania Ecolution,” added Marie.
Scania has introduced its latest award-winning New Truck Generation in Malaysia that has been designed and engineered to give fleet owners a greater total operating economy and profitability, as well as lower CO2 emissions. The New Truck Generation by Scania is equipped with aerodynamic and powertrain innovations that cut fuel costs by 3 per cent, the result of the company’s largest-ever investment of some SEK 20 billion (RM10 billion), 10 years of development work and more than 10 million kilometres of test-driving.
Scania also introduced Scania Ecolution last year. It is a tailor-made partnership between customer’s business and Scania, with the sole purpose of reducing fuel consumption up to 10% and lower CO2 emissions.
“It is a competitive industry that is increasingly focusing on sustainability, which we believe can go hand-in-hand with profitability for our customers. Scania Ecolution will facilitate the shift towards a sustainable transport system for transport companies whether it is transporting goods or people,” said Marie.
