After 20 Years Scania Launches Their Most Important Truck
|   Friday, September 09, 2016
Specialists from Scania have launched their most importantly truck in the last 20 years! The Swedish manufacturer has developed a new generation of trucks for the past 10 years, spending 10 million kilometers in tests and investing in its development over 2 billion euros - the largest investment in the company's 125 years of history!

Thanks to optimized aerodynamics, but also to the refined diesel powertrain, the new generation of Scania trucks has become 5 percent more efficient.
A total of 3 percent of that percentage are due to the engine with a displacement of 13 liters, 6 cylinder in-line, offered in four versions of power - 370 hp, 410 hp (torque of 2,150 Nm), 450 hp (2,350 Nm torque), and the most powerful version delivering 500 hp and a torque of 2,550 Nm!

The engine can consume and hydro-treated vegetable oil, which reduces emissions by 90 percent!
There are also versions with V8 engine with a displacement of 16 liters, available in three versions of power - 520 hp (torque of 2,700 Nm), 580 hp (torque of 2,950 Nm) and 730 hp (torque of 3,500 Nm).

Also, the engines are available in complying with various anti-pollution rules: Euro 3, Euro 4, Euro 5 and EEV. This allows to enjoy the power, maneuverability, and economy in use - and V8 personalized style - regardless of the engine power needs.
The new truck is safer due to a more rigid cabin, a new braking system that reduces the braking distance by 5 percent. It is also the first truck in the world with side curtain airbags.

The cabin has gotten a transformation without limits - 24 cabins variations are available!
The cabin can provide a large volume due to the storage facility, two beds with a width of 80 cm, the bottom one can be extended to 100 cm, an ergonomic position for truck drivers with heights between 1.5 meters and 2.0 meters, advanced multimedia system and modern connectivity with 5 or 8 inch display, leather upholstery and much more.

It's hard to describe what a torque of 3500 Nm means in terms of ability to climb slopes, and comfort when cruising at low revs. Driving a R 730 truck does not feel like you need to change gears because the engine seems more powerful at low revs!
Thanks to the high torque available even at idle speed starting off is easy regardless of the load. The performance when overtaking and acceleration are certainly of the highest class. With 730 hp available whenever you need it no transport task is too difficult.

Scania now offers its customers no less than 18 Euro 6 engines for all types of applications. In addition, it sets international records in terms of low fuel consumption with the latest model of Euro 6 engine.
A 40-ton truck with Scania Euro 6 engine with 410 hp (6 cylinders in line with a displacement of 13 liters) may theoretically be able to travel about 3700 kilometers on a single tank of 900 liters).

"The most noticeable features are of course the new cabs, but the real innovation is that we are now introducing new technologies, services and insights that will help our customers gain an overview of both their costs and their revenues. Our goal is for our customers to be able to achieve sustainable profitability, regardless of assignment type or the conditions in which they work." stated Henrik Henriksson, Scania's President and CEO.
