R-Series scores trophy
SCANIA’S new R-Series, which will be launched here in the first quarter of 2010, has been judged the International Truck of the Year 2010. Judges cited the aerodynamic design of the R-Series, operational economy and the unique support system that spurs the driver to adopt more efficient driving habits. ‘‘The statement of the jury matches the positive reactions we are now getting from customers,’’ Scania president and CEO Leif Ostling says. The award goes to the truck that made the strongest contribution towards making road transport more efficient in the past year.
