SCANIA JOINS ELECTRIC RACE
SCANIA has unveiled a hybrid Scania Interlink Low Decker and the battery electric Scania Citywide bus at Belgium’s biggest bus show in Kortrijk.
Scania also premiered its battery electric Scania Citywide Low Floor bus at Busworld. This bus will go on sale next year. Karin Rådström, head of buses and coaches at Scania, said rapid suburbanisation rather than expanding city centres around the world required a greater focus on finding non-fossil alternatives for these journeys.”
Rådström said Scania will have the most comprehensive range with the widest selection of alternative fuels in the market. This include the electric buses of BYD, Proterra, Mercedes-Benz and Volvo, as well as a slew of independent operators.
She is confident freedom of choice with retained total operating economy will make the necessary shift from diesel burners to more sustainable passenger transport services. — WR.
