  Scania has launched a new initiative for strengthening Scania’s “We at Scania are continuing along
powertrain that promises an
8% fuel saving as part of an investment of some €2 billion to make its biggest update since it introduced its new generation in 2016.
With its all-new 13-litre engine platform for Euro 6 vehicles, ranging from 420 to 560hp, Scania says its powertrain can deliver fuel savings that typically will reach 8% for long haul customers.
All engines have inherent HVO fuel capabilities and two of them can be ordered as FAME biodiesel versions. More iterations will follow for markets outside Europe and for biogas solutions. The new powertrain also includes
new gearboxes and axles. Scania is also introducing an option for digital rearview mirrors for increased safety.
“What we introduce is not only an engine platform but a major
industry-leading position within sustainable transport for the rest
of this decade,” said Alexander Vlaskamp, executive vice president and head of sales and marketing at Scania. “Our strong focus on transport efficiency guides us in the shift towards a decarbonised world, a shift that will have a major contribution from our new powertrain.
“We see a world of transport that
is rapidly changing, where customer demands for the best total operating economy and a sustainable future go hand-in-hand. At Scania, we have set our aim higher than maybe any other manufacturer. Not because we think
it will be easy but because we see no other option than to actually reach the targets for curbing greenhouse gas emissions set by the Paris agreement in 2016.
our established path of offering a palette of sustainable solutions for
our customers. Renewable fuels
and electrified vehicles will increase their share dramatically in the next
few years, but we all still depend on combustion engines for our daily lives. And that is why Scania’s new engine
is so important, since it will contribute towards substantial decarbonisation for the rest of this decade.”
