At IAA, Scania will be presenting news in the form of products and services that contribute directly to improving bus and truck customers’ profitability. Besides additional Euro 6 engines, Scania will also be introducing a range of new items aimed at reducing either the customers’ operating costs or their environmental footprint – goals that often go hand in hand. Scania’s latest innovations can provide significant reductions in fuel consumption in long-haulage vehicles. And when it comes to buses, Scania Citywide will present its own hybrid technology.
By driving with two full-length trailers, Scania reduces fuel consumption by up to 30 percent with an equivalent reduction in harmful carbon dioxide emissions. Following Scania’s request, the Swedish Transport Agency has now granted permission to operate rigs of 31.5 metres in total length between Södertälje and Helsingborg in Sweden.
