Scania innovations on show

The ITTES in March will offer show goers the first opportunity to inspect the refreshed Scania P-series cab, which boasts new frontal styling similar to the manufacturer’s larger G-series and R-series trucks.

Another highlight of the stand will be the first of Scania’s new generation 12.7-litre six-cylinder in-line SCR Euro 5 emission compliant engines on display. This will be installed in a new P-series fitted with a 440hp SCR engine, using a 6×2 drive configuration.

The SCR range includes 360hp, 400hp and 480hp options in addition to the 440hp, all of which boast high torque and low fuel consumption and emissions. These engines may run on up to 100 per cent biodiesel, and can be specified in Euro 5.

The new six-cylinder SCR engines will be offered across the three Scania cab ranges (P, G, R) and a multitude of drive configurations, and will complement the existing six-cylinder EGR Euro 5 range of engines.

“Operators who already run SCR engines in their fleet will welcome the new Scania six-cylinder SCR engines,” says Managing Director of Scania Australia, Roger McCarthy.

“The new P 440 SCR configuration is ideally suited to supermarket or bulk fuel distributors, given its lower entry height, which is ideal for drivers who are in and out of the vehicle all day.”

He continued, “The show vehicle’s 6×2 configuration offers operators a lower tare weight and enhanced payload compared with an otherwise identical 6×4 configuration, as well as reduced running costs and maintenance costs, but with no loss of driveability.”

Scania will also display an example of the mighty R 730 V8, similar to the vehicle that was awarded Truck of the Show in Brisbane in May 2011; as well as a P 320 6×2 curtainsider, promoting the Scania Ready Built Programme; and a G 480 EGR 6×4 prime mover that is ideal for single or b-double application.
