Global engine for Scania

Scania is taking the final steps towards a global engine platform to suit all markets. Using the latest technology, this platform is set to deliver strength, high performance, fuel efficiency, and easier servicing and parts supply.
“After several years of development, we are takig the final steps towards a common global engine platform that is designed to meet all emission standards worldwide,” said Scania’s Head of Powertrain Development, Jonas Hofstedt.

“Work on Scania's new engine platform started in the early 2000s to take us to Euro 6 and beyond. In parallel, several auxiliary technologies have been developed inhouse to create the flexibility needed. The technologies include engine management, fuel injection and exhaust aftertreatment, all of which are used in different combinations to suit market conditions.”

The engines will be manufactured at Scania's factories in Europe and South America, using the same production methods and interchangeable parts and components.

“The engines and all other technologies have been developed for use in trucks and buses, as well as for industrial and marine engine applications. Combined with the latest gearbox generation, which is being introduced in Latin American production, Scania now has a global product range that can be supplied independently of production site,” added Mr Hofstedt.

The development of this new engine generation and the technology to meet future emission legislation has taken over five years and has cost Scania approximately SEK 10 billion.
