SÖDERTÄLJE, Sweden--(BUSINESS WIRE)--At IAA, Scania (STO:SCVA) (STO:SCVB) will be presenting news in the form of products and services that contribute directly to improving bus and truck customers’ profitability. Besides additional Euro 6 engines, Scania will also be introducing a range of new items aimed at reducing either the customers' operating costs or their environmental footprint – goals that often go hand in hand. Scania's latest innovations can provide significant reductions in fuel consumption in long-haulage vehicles. And when it comes to buses, Scania Citywide will present its own hybrid technology.

“Today, all kinds of customers are chasing profitability by reducing operating costs, regardless if their business is about transporting goods or passengers”

With one of the broadest ranges of Euro 6 engines on the market, over the past year Scania has celebrated triumphs in independent tests of fuel consumption. Scania's 13-litre engine has proven itself to be unbeatably thrifty, especially in its configurations with SCR-only as the aftertreatment method. Recently Scania introduced yet another variant – a version with 450 hp that will also reduce fuel consumption.

"Today, all kinds of customers are chasing profitability by reducing operating costs, regardless if their business is about transporting goods or passengers," says Henrik Henriksson, Executive Vice President at Scania. “We should consider Scania's continuous search after costly drops of diesel, custom-made solutions and increased uptime in light of this. At IAA, we are introducing a range of innovations that will further strengthen our customers' balance sheets.”

Scania has a firmly established reputation in the bus market for being a manufacturer that is always able to live up to both society’s and customers' demands for environ­mental solutions. This means that the buses are both fuel-conscious and can run on any commercially available fuel, thanks to an extensive engine range. Scania is now taking one step further and is expanding its offer with hybridisation. At the IAA exhibition, a Scania Citywide with a hybrid powertrain will be on display.

Advanced technology

Scania is also introducing a more advanced technology solution that aims to reduce costs and increase uptime. Scania's retarder can now be ordered in a version that cuts down on fuel consumption by mechanically disengaging when not active. Be­sides saving on fuel, the freewheeling retarder also provides higher braking power, 4,100 Nm instead of 3,500 Nm, as well as an increased braking effect at lower engine rpm with the help of higher gear ratios. A new option will also be introduced were the retarder can only be engaged by the brake pedal. In keeping with the principle that auxiliary systems that don’t need to work constantly shouldn’t lead to losses, Scania is also introducing a disengaging brake compressor that further contributes to saving fuel.

Scania will also be introducing a further-developed version of Eco-roll, the advanced system in which Scania Opticruise acts together with Scania Active Prediction to save fuel. The vehicle itself is able to calculate when it is most advantageous to roll down slopes in neutral gear and with an idle engine. The system is now even more intelligent, being able to activate Eco-roll more often and choose gears even more optimally. Depending on how hilly the road is, Eco-roll now contributes further savings for 13-litre Euro 6 engines.

Scania has also addressed the issues of reducing internal friction in some engines. By increasing working temperature and using a specially developed, fuel-saving, low-viscosity oil with unique lubricating qualities, Scania engineers have reported a significant further savings potential when the effects of increased temperature and the fuel-saving oil are put together. A limitation is that the fuel saving oil can only be used in long-haulage trucks with 13-litre Euro 6 engines in light operations.

Customised solutions

“When it comes to long-term sustainability, the heavy vehicle industry, including buses, has just taken a critical step forward in our part of the world thanks to Euro 6," says Christopher Podgorski, Senior Vice President Trucks at Scania. “The next step should be tackling CO2 and will be much more demanding. Our primary target is to help our customers improve their profitability, with the help of advanced technologies and intelligent solutions. The manufacturer who best understands the customer’s world, and who contributes to strengthening the customer’s total financial position, is the one that wins. Scania has the products, services and insights that are necessary for this role.”

Besides product-related news on buses and trucks, Scania will also present a number of new or further developed services at IAA. Many of them have in common that they ultimately aim to enhance customer performance by increasing uptime, which impacts revenues.
