Scania adds hybrid truck to its market leading range of vehicles for alternative fuels

Scania has now begun a comprehensive launch of a full range of products with alternative fuels and powertrains for Euro 6. The drive is a decisive step in the company’s long-term commitment to offering the widest range of sustain­able transport solutions. The highlight of the programme is a Scania-developed hybrid truck for urban distribution combining electric and biodiesel operation; other engines run on gas and biogas, biodiesel, bioethanol and HVO (hydrotreated vegetable oil). This further enhances Scania’s position as the manufacturer with the widest range of alternative fuels.

From the leader in alternative fuels:Green light for HVO-use in Scania Euro 6 range

Scania has given the green light to hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO) being used to power its Euro 6 range, provided the fuel used meets technical specification TS15940. Vehicles using HVO – which chemically mimics fossil-fuel-based diesel – can under optimal condition achieve up to a 90-percent reduction in CO2 emissions. HVO does not affect a vehicle’s characteristics or its maintenance requirements.
