Scania adds G-series to Next Generation truck range
Scania has launched the G-Series as part of its Next Generation truck range. It compliments the recently launched R- and S-series models and is available with low, normal and high roof – initially in sleeper format. Scania says the G-Series will be a valuable addition for customers seeking a lower boarding point to provide a highly versatile solution for a range of task and applications, including urban, inter-urban and multi-drop distribution operations.
The cab features a lower seating position, designed to offer excellent visibility whilst maintaining a large sleeper cab to maximise both storage and sleeping comfort. There are three entry steps and the driver’s station follows Scania’s modular concept utilising the brands wing style dash board, sloping away to maximise forward visibility. Just like the larger sleeper cabs, Next Generation G-series sleeper cabs can be selected in several different configurations and equipped with a wide variety of options and accessories relating to factors such as comfort, storage and safety.
Storage options have been significantly improved, due primarily to the new ceiling heights that allow for storage in both the front and back edges of the cab, even at the regular roof height. The configuration also has space for a comfortable bed with the potential for storage and a refrigerator underneath in several different combinations. Scania has also developed a special tablet holder that can be mounted on the instrument panel.
There are also power supply and charging facilities, with the G-cab providing up to two 12/24 volt and four USB outlets, depending on the option package chosen.
A manually-controlled climate system is available alongside the already launched automatic options, and the instrument panel can be complemented with an extension out to the left for those who need additional switches and buttons, such as those for controlling functions relating to the truck’s bodywork.
