The transition to the Euro 6 emission class in Europe has occupied the heavy vehicle industry for a number of years. OEM’s have sweated to meet the tough requirements; customers have feared that the more advanced technology would lead to higher fuel consumption, among other things.
Scania is now adding yet another environmentally oriented alternative to its industry-leading palette with Euro 6 certified truck engines. The Scania 16-litre, 580 hp V8 engine can now be ordered in a configuration with up to 100 percent biodiesel operation (EN 14214) in the R-series. Scania thus has five different engines for biodiesel operation in its range, with a power span of 320-580 hp.
