    Ett 40-tons trailerekipage med Scanias raka, 13-liters sexa på 410 hästkrafter och Euro 6 kan, i teorin, komma bortåt 370 mil på dieselbränslet i en enda 900-liters aluminiumtank som den på bilden.

    Euro 6 – the challenge was to win

    For a number of years, the trucking industry has struggled to fulfil the exacting emission legislation that came into force at the end of last year. Scania is the manufacturer that has been able to present competitive solutions sooner and better than anyone else. Scania now offers its customers no less than 18 Euro 6 engines for all types of applications – and is setting international records in low fuel consumption with their latest Euro 6 diesel engine.

    “Northern and central Europe look stronger than southern Europe,” says Bengt Thorsson, Executive Regional Director, European Region at Scania.

     “Europe will rebound”

    The European market has started a little better than expected. There were concerns before 2014 about how demand would be affected by last year’s pre-buys of Euro 5 trucks, but the pre-buy effect was shorter than feared. “We are now seeing a gradual return to more ‘normal’ levels of demand,” says Bengt Thorsson, Executive Regional Director, European Region at Scania.

    Carefully selected vehicles a boost to business

    For 30 years Shahid Butt has tested, bought and driven transport vehicles of all makes and models on Kenya’s many roads. That’s why, 15 years ago, he chose Scania to exclusively supply its vehicles for his fleet of trucks and buses.
