Scania's new global engine range ready for the future

Scania is taking the final steps towards a global engine platform based
on the latest technology for all markets and for all emission standards.
Strength, high performance and fuel efficiency are key characteristics.
Easier servicing and parts supply contribute to improved uptime for
“After several years of development, we are taking the final steps
towards a common global engine platform that is designed to meet all
emission standards worldwide,” says Jonas Hofstedt, Head of Powertrain
Customer benefits include enhanced robustness, performance and fuel
economy, as well as easier access to parts and servicing via Scania's
global network.
“Work on Scania's new engine platform started in the early 2000s to take
us to Euro 6 and beyond. In parallel, several auxiliary technologies
have been developed inhouse to create the flexibility needed. The
technologies include engine management, fuel injection and exhaust
aftertreatment, all of which are used in different combinations to suit
market conditions.”
The engines are manufactured at Scania's factories in Europe and South
America, using the same production methods and interchangeable parts and
“The engines and all other technologies have been developed for use in
trucks and buses, as well as for industrial and marine engine
applications. Combined with the latest gearbox generation, which is
being introduced in Latin American production, Scania now has a global
product range that can be supplied independently of production site,”
concludes Mr Hofstedt.
As announced earlier this year, the development of the new engine
generation and the technology to meet future emission legislation took
more than five years and involves costs for Scania of approximately SEK
10 billion.
The new engine range and Scania's global activities will be presented at
a 40‑minute webcast today, Tuesday 25 October, at 14:00 CET at
