SCANIA UNVEILS BROADEST RANGE EVER AT BUSWORLD KORTRIJK
Scania will showcase the industry’s broadest range of alternative fuel vehicles at Busworld in Kortrijk. Scania now offers buses and coaches for all operations – from dense city traffic to demanding coach operations – expressly designed for enhanced passenger experience, maximum uptime and minimal environmental impact.
Scania offers operators the widest selection of Euro 6 engines for alternative fuels – bioethanol, biodiesel and biogas. With more than 30 years’ experience of bioethanol, the most readily available alternative fuel in the world, Scania alone can supply buses with a potential for up to a 90-percent CO2 reduction. Scania’s buses and coaches are also available for biodiesel operations, such as HVO and RME.
Scania displays a selection of its extensive range at Busworld. The hybridised Scania Citywide, which is also certified for alternative fuels, is ideally suited for combined city and suburban operations with speeds up to 100 kilometres per hour. That gives customers the opportunity to invest in carbon-saving operations with a calculated payback of just over five years, including battery replacements during the lifespan. By comparison, payback is some two years later in purely inner-city operations.
Interest in gas-fuel operations, with their potential for cost savings, lower carbon emissions and noise reduction, is soaring around the world. The gas-fuelled Scania buses, with the acclaimed diesel-comparable performance of the Euro 6 engine, is a growing choice for Europe’s operators. As cities increasingly impose restrictions, natural gas and, when available, biogas is a highly competitive alternative.
In coaches, Scania’s complete offering with well-proven technology ensures outstanding uptime and reliability. The latest addition to Scania’s Euro 6 range is the Scania Touring, 450 hp SCR only. Combined with new Scania Opticruise performance modes and Active Prediction to predict and benefit from topographical variation, Scania leads the way in fuel optimisation.
