SIA Truck1 eu : Scania enhances gas trucks with Opticruise
Scania’s 9-litre gas engines are now available in combination with the brand’s well-proven automated transmission system – Opticruise. It means that more customers can now take advantage of compressed and liquefied gas solutions and apply them to long-haulage transportation and regional distribution. Scania Opticruise stands for smooth and fuel-efficient automated gearchanging, ensured by precise matching of engine and gearbox features.With respect to ever-increasing environmental considerations, the European haulages are concerned with improving air quality and minimizing their carbon footprint.
The manufacturer, for its part, is experiencing a notable increase in demand for gas-operated trucks.The present-day gas-powered offers from Scania include 9-litre, 5-cylinder gas engines in two power ratings inside the trucks with P-, G- and Low-entry cabs. Scania’s gas-fuelled engines demonstrate equally high standards operating with CNG (Compressed Natural Gas), LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas), or with renewable biogas. For example, the 340 hp gas engine is fully comparable in terms of performance to the diesel variant with the same power rate.
It even outputs slightly higher maximum torque.
The combination of such a great performance with Scania Opticruise assistance allows long-haulage drivers to benefit from relaxed driving and a low noise volume.The Opticruise gearchanging strategy integrated into Scania trucks has been facilitating driving experience since 2009.SIA Truck1.eu published this content on 14 November 2016 and is solely responsible for the information contained herein.
