Scania plans to display seven trucks inside the exhibition and three more in the outside exhibition area. The indoor trucks will be accompanied by two buses, one of which has a Liquified Natural Gas powertrain. A further three buses will be on show in the outside area. All vehicles exhibited will have powertrains designed for renewable fuels and solutions available today that make a sustainable difference to the climate.
“Scania is now turning its attention towards future oriented solutions,” comments Alexander Vlaskamp, Senior Vice President, Head of Scania Trucks. “We are catching sight of the turning point, where electrified and autonomous vehicles will start playing an increasingly important role in real-world solutions that will improve our customers profitability.”
Scania’s introduction of its new truck generation began in August 2016 and consists of products and services for the long haul, construction and urban segments. Scania’s modular build system includes 23 Euro 6 engines and 24 cabs and enables its dealers to tailor-make solutions, including connected services, for any application.
“We have high expectations regarding this year’s IAA, says Alexander Vlaskamp. The level of confidence we are experiencing right now is based on the reception of our new offer and the strong demand we are seeing. In Hanover, Scania will show that sustainable transport solutions can be delivered tailor made, here and now, with the best total operating economy for both trucks and buses.”
