Scania to launch Euro 5 engine with EGR in 2007
In conjunction with today’s Capital Markets Day, Scania's Group Vice President Research and Development Hasse Johansson announced that Scania will start introducing its new engine platform for Euro 5 during 2007. On these new engines, Scania uses EGR, exhaust gas recirculation, without any aftertreatment to meet Euro 5. This technology does not require the driver/operator to handle any additives when refuelling and no extra installations are needed on the vehicle.
“Scania has a leading position in the industry in terms of meeting environmental demands and customer requirements,” stated Hasse Johansson.
“During 2007 Scania will start introducing a new range of Euro 5 engines with EGR and with the new Scania XPI common-rail fuel injection system, starting in the mainstream long-haulage segment."
“The new engines meet Euro 5 without any fuel penalty,” concludes Hasse Johansson.
Two years ago, as the first heavy truck manufacturer on the market, Scania introduced its first Euro 4 engines using EGR technology1 (exhaust gas recirculation).
Scania has since introduced a comprehensive range of Euro 4 and Euro 5 engines using both EGR and SCR2 (selective catalytic reduction).
Experience of Euro 4 and Euro 5 in day-to-day operation indicates that truck and bus operators prefer EGR because this technology is more convenient for many applications.

1 EGR recycles exhaust gases into the engine to reduce NOx emissions. Scania’s high-pressure fuel injection system is used to reduce particulates.
2 SCR is an after treatment technology that cleans exhaust gases after combustion by injecting a urea solution into the exhaust gases.
