Next Generation Scania: Renovated SustainabilitySat, 09/01/2018 - 12:20
Scania is a Swedish OEM focused on the production and sale of trucks and buses and related services. With 20 years of presence in the Mexican market, Scania’s network includes 11 dealerships, 48 service points and an assembly plant in Queretaro that produces all Scania vehicles circulating on Mexico’s roads.
As part of its commitment to sustainability, Scania focuses on providing the market with solutions that reduce carbon footprints in transportation, operating sustainably in terms of its product manufacturing processes, the wellbeing of its collaborators and the company’s social impact.
With this in mind, Scania has launched its new generation of heavy vehicles that facilitate the adoption of sustainable transportation. According to a press release posted by the company, the new range of trucks and buses are the result of 10 years of development and an investment of approximately US$2.2 billion to ensure that Scania’s customers can always carry out their work in the most sustainable and profitable way.
The company underlines that all Euro VI engines powering Scania’s new truck range have received new management systems. Additionally, the improved cooling capacity in the cabs of these new trucks allows clients to save an average of 3 percent more fuel.
According to Enrique Enrich, Director General of Scania Mexico, the new range of trucks and buses were launched in Europe in 2016 but will reach the Mexican market as the country embraces Euro VI regulations. “The new vehicles are more fuel efficient and clients will be pleased with the results they offer,” he told Mexico Automotive Review in 2017.
Among the advantages that set apart the new generation of Scania trucks is its modular system that improves performance, provides greater connectivity and include a comprehensive set of productivity-enhancing tools and sustainable solutions. According to Henrik Henriksson, President and CEO of Scania, the company did not only launch a new truck range but also a unique, ingenious toolbox of sustainable solutions.
Scania underlines that its new truck generation can easily run on hydrogenated vegetable oil (HVO), conventional diesel or a combination of both without losing performance. The company highlights that in the best-case scenario, a new generation Scania truck can reduce CO2 emissions by up to 90 percent.
