PREMIERE AT IAA: SCANIA INTERLINK WITH LNG
Scania's Interlink is from now on also available with LNG. It was just a matter of time before a manufacturer would introduce the first coach with a LNG tank and engine. Scania is the first one to introduce this alternative fuel driven coach at the IAA in Hannover.
The Scania Interlink Medium Decker coach with LNG is good for a range of up to 1,000 kilometres. Scania hereby extends the broad range of alternative fuel options to sustainable intercity coach journeys. “As LNG is becoming increasingly available throughout Europe, as well as in many other parts of the world, this is a timely and viable alternative”, says Karin Rådström, Head of Buses and Coaches at Scania.
LNG operations have the potential to reduce CO2 emissions by 20% while also substantially reducing nitrogen oxide and particulate matter emissions. Additionally, noise levels are significantly lower. If liquefied biogas is used, the carbon emissions can be reduced by 90%, compared to a diesel Euro 6 driven coach. Sustainability is Scania’s guiding theme at IAA. Scania is also presenting Citywide LE Suburban hybrid and the Scania Interlink High Decker for Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO).
Additionally, Scania showcases its battery electric Citywide Low Floor bus, which is presently being tested in regular traffic in the northern Swedish city of Östersund.
