Scania is introducing a new family of seven-litre engines.  Available in three power outputs – 220, 250 and 280 horsepower – the new platform is intended primarily for urban operations, with key features being high fuel efficiency, excellent driveability, low weight and low noise.  In addition, when specified in conjunction with Scania Opticruise, the compact size of the new unit enables a G-series cab floor to be used in P-series models, thereby providing a 95mm lower engine floor and greater storage space.

The new seven-litre platform has been developed together with Cummins, a long-term component-development-partner of Scania. The engine has good low-rev characteristics, a fixed geometry turbocharger, and uses only selective catalytic reduction (SCR) for the exhaust gas after-treatment for Euro 6.  The unit is significantly smaller in size than Scania’s existing nine-litre engine and weighs approximately 600 kilogrammes, a saving of 360 kilogrammes compared to the nine-litre unit.

“The introduction of this new engine platform, together with the other initiatives we are  announcing at this time – the Scania L-series low-entry cab and the City Safe Window, (see separate releases) – considerably boosts our urban vehicle programme,” says Andrew Jamieson, Sales Director for Scania (Great Britain) Limited.  “Furthermore, in accordance with our stated policy to drive the shift towards more sustainable transport solutions, the new engine is certified for use with 100 percent HVO (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil), a biofuel which gives a carbon dioxide reduction of up to 90 percent.  The main parameters for local distribution operators are typically fuel-consumption, payload, environmental considerations, driver environment and reliability, meaning the Scania product line-up today is now more attractive than ever.”
