Leisure Frontier is First in Singapore to Acquire the Scania K320 Coach
SINGAPORE – Scania Singapore, in partnership with RVS Allied Global, handed over the first K-series coach in the 320 hp engine configuration to local coach transportation company, Leisure Frontier. The handover ceremony for the Scania K320 IB 4x2 coach took place today in the presence of customers and partners.
The more economical 320 hp engine, with 1600Nm torque, is ideal for urban transport as well as cross-border operations.
“With the Scania K320, we are delivering to Leisure Frontier a durable and reliable right-size powertrain for Singapore city operations to reduce operating costs and environmental impact,” said Mr Daniel Tan, Solution Sales Director of Scania Southeast Asia. “We recognise that fuel consumption is a major component of operating costs and have designed the K-series buses and coaches with a complete range of fuel-efficient powertrains to match different transportation requirements.”
Scania’s K-series buses and coaches offer an efficient engine, reducing fuel consumption without compromising on performance. Since 2021, all Scania vehicles equipped with the Opticruise cruise control are also pre-set to economy mode to ensure customers enjoy the best fuel economy towards Scania’s reduction of Scope 3 carbon emissions under the Science Based Targets initiative.
Customers seeking further improvements in fuel economy can subscribe to driver training and support services to reduce fuel consumption, as well as fleet management services to analyse vehicle performance for more savings.
In addition, each vehicle is equipped with safety features including the Scania Retarder to improve braking power and increase the service life of the wheel brakes, and driver assistance systems to enhance vehicle control. These features, coupled with a smooth gearbox transition on the K-series vehicles, also ensure a high level of driver and passenger comfort and peace of mind.
“As inbound tourism and large-scale events resume in Singapore, we plan to meet the growing demand for local transportation with this Scania K320 coach,” said Mr Terence Ng, Managing Director of Leisure Frontier. “We have enjoyed a positive experience using the Scania K410 coach since 2019 and believe this latest acquisition is a fuel-efficient, safe and comfortable choice to support our operations.”
Leisure Frontier Group, with a fleet of more than 100 coaches of different sizes, offers local tours, shuttle bus services, departure and arrival pick-ups, event transportation and rental and chartering services. Its fleet already includes eight units of Scania K410 IB 4x2 coaches.
