SCANIA LAUNCHES NEW POWERTRAIN AND MAJOR UPDATES TO ITS TRUCKS IN SINGAPORE
Major updates – resulting from more than 2 billion euros of investment and a focus on sustainability – deliver up to 8% fuel savings
SINGAPORE, 1 April– Scania Singapore today launches a new powertrain and major updates to chassis, frames, axles and tanks for its trucks, to strengthen its industry-leading position in sustainable transport.
The new powertrain – which together with its improved components offers up to 8% fuel savings for long-haul operations – is the single biggest launch since the introduction of Scania’s New Truck Generation in Singapore in 2018. Since that launch, Scania has invested more than 2 billion euros in research and development to further improve the truck line, focussing its efforts on customer needs while taking the necessary steps towards a sustainable future.
“We are pleased to launch this major update to give our customers greater operational efficiency while doing the right thing for our planet,” says Anders Liss, Country Manager of Scania Singapore. “The integration of the improved powertrain and components serves to make the world’s most efficient truck even better.”
The new powertrain offers an all-new engine platform for Euro 6 vehicles, with inherent capability to handle HVO and FAME biodiesel alternative fuels. Each engine will feature the new Scania Twin Selective Catalytic Reduction System for excellent fuel-saving capability and increased productivity and uptime, with a brake thermal efficiency of up to 50%.
It comes in 7-litre engines for 230-320 horsepower, 11-litre engines for 350-430 horsepower, 13-litre engines for 420-560 horsepower and 16-litre engines for 530-730 horsepower. The 13-litre engine is part of the new powertrain called Scania Super that delivers up to 8% fuel economy.
The launch also includes new chassis, frames, axles and tanks for increased modularity. Each truck will be fitted with the new Scania Opticruise gearbox for lighter and quieter operations, and the new Scania 756 single reduction rear axles for improved efficiency with reduced internal losses.
In addition to the new side-mounted AdBlue tanks in 123 and 150 litres, the new aluminium D-shaped fuel tank is also available from 165 litres to 910 litres in various lengths for greater fuel optimisation and durability. The new fuel tank can be positioned in different parts of the chassis, offering more flexibility and modularity in truck configuration.
Scania is also introducing an option for digital rearview mirrors for increased safety.
In Singapore, the Scania Super 13-litre and the 16-litre engine and their corresponding components will be available immediately to customers.
At the top of the new powertrain range is the Scania Super with the new 13-litre engine.
The Scania Super with new 13-litre engine has been engineered for improved fuel efficiency, performance and emissions control.
