Powerful solutions for cleaner transports
Scania's range of gas-powered trucks is highly adaptable, with great drivability, low fuel consumption, and a range of up to 1,700km. Gas powertrains are available with P/G/R/S-series cabs, meaning that they can be used for urban rigid operations, all the way through to long-distance haulage.
Significantly reduced impact
It’s no secret that transport is a major source of fossil fuel CO₂ emissions.. But being a major source also comes with the ability to achieve major reductions: Natural Gas CNG/LNG can reduce CO₂ emissions by 15-20%, and Biogas CNG/LNG by an incredible 90%.
Noise pollution is reduced to, as gas engines typically run quieter than their diesel counterparts - with the 13-litre engine meeting the PIEK noise limitation standard.
Engineering without compromise
Scania gas-powered trucks strike an excellent balance between fuel cost, low emissions, power and range. With a 9-litre engine for lighter urban operations, and a 13-litre engine suited to heavier loads, gas power is a viable option for a multitude of use-cases.
Alternative fuel sources
The first thing to say is that both gases are methane and the source can be both natural gas or renewable biomethane gas. Both can be used in parallel, making any switch from one to the other a straightforward and easy transition. One unit of liquefied gas energy takes up 3 times less volume than one unit of compressed gas energy. Simply, this means liquefied methane is denser and you can, therefore, get more energy on a vehicle than with compressed methane gas.
Scania gas engines are known for their fuel efficiency. A articulated truck with a gross weight of up to 40 tonnes can drive 1,100 kilometres without refuelling under favourable conditions. With twin fuel tanks on a rigid truck, the range is approximately 1,700 kilometres. With biogas in the tanks, CO2 reduction can be as much as 90 percent compared to a similar diesel engine.

Driving profitability with a fleet of Scania 410 hp gas trucks
Valencia-based Delgo Transport specialises in refrigerated transports at both a national and international level. Today, just a year after acquiring their first liquefied natural gas truck, half of the company’s fleet of 110 trucks runs on LNG, and, so far, Managing Director Félix González likes what he sees.
“When we found out Scania made gas trucks, 80 percent of the decision was made,” he says. “And the results we’ve had have been better than what we had on paper. Better consumption levels, and fewer emissions of course.”
