Scania – clean and efficient
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.
