Sca­nia – clean and ef­fi­cient

ABC (Australia) - - SUPPLY LINES -

SCA­NIA of­fers a full range of Euro 6 and Euro 5 emis­sion-com­pli­ant en­gines for Aus­tralian bus and coach cus­tomers. The proven five- and six-cylinder en­gines in 9-litre and 13-litre ca­pac­i­ties pro­vide ex­cel­lent fuel econ­omy and the driv­abil­ity bus driv­ers like, es­pe­cially when pulling away with a full load.

Sca­nia has pi­o­neered the Euro 6 of­fer in Aus­tralia us­ing SCR-only tech­nol­ogy, com­bin­ing ex­cel­lent per­for­mance and fuel ef­fi­ciency. The stan­dard Sca­nia en­gine for route and city bus op­er­a­tions is the 310hp five-cylinder with 1500Nm, while coach op­er­a­tors are rev­el­ling in the prow­ess of the 490hp Euro 6 unit with 2550Nm, which re­cently ar­rived here in Aus­tralia.

With close to 500hp, Sca­nia coach driv­ers can rightly con­sider them­selves the ‘kings of the road’.

Sca­nia en­gines can be mated to ZF six-speed push but­ton au­to­matic trans­mis­sions with built-in re­tarders, or use the Sca­nia Op­ti­cruise au­to­mated trans­mis­sion - again backed by the ef­fort­less brak­ing of a high-per­for­mance re­tarder, which re­duces ser­vice brake wear, cut­ting run­ning costs.

In Europe, Sca­nia is a leader in the pro­vi­sion of al­ter­na­tive fu­els for even cleaner en­gine per­for­mance, with bio-diesel, bio-ethanol, and diesel-elec­tric hy­brid sys­tems all on the mar­ket.
