Scania starts delivery of engines with Euro 6 Standards

ABR Staff Writer Published 04 April 2011

Scania, a manufacturer of trucks and buses for heavy transport applications, has started delivering trucks with engines that comply with the European emission standards (Euro 6).

The engines combine a number of technical solutions to cut emissions of nitrogen oxides and particulates by around 80% compared with the standards currently in force (Euro 5).

Scania's Euro 6 engines make it possible for keen operators to take the next step and invest in the greenest technology available in the market.

Scania EVP of sales and marketing Martin Lundstedt said they are proud to be able to make this remarkable feat of engineering available to their customers even now.

"The new engines are designed to give the same performance and fuel efficiency as their Euro 5 counterparts," Lundstedt said.

In the development of the Euro 6 engines, the company has combined all the new technologies developed by them in recent years - exhaust gas recirculation, variable turbo geometry, common-rail high-pressure fuel injection, selective catalytic reduction and particulate filtering.

The development of the new engine generation and the technology to meet future emission legislation has taken five years and involves costs for Scania of SEK10bn ($1.59bn).

Euro 6 emission standards will enter into force in the European Union and certain neighboring countries on 31 December 2012 for new vehicle models and one year later for all new vehicles sold.
