Scania’s commitment to meet the Paris Agreement targets

«The words that come to me are: ‘total success’ and ‘customer value’», said Stefan Dorski, Senior Vice President and Head of Scania Trucks. «Winning this test five years in a row is a feat that should not be possible, yet we’ve still done it. I see it as the ultimate proof of how Scania’s powertrain technology supports our customers in their constant efforts to reach the best total operating economy. Although electrification is on its way, we need the most efficient combustion engines to reach the Paris Agreement targets, something which Scania is committed to».

The Scania R 410 was the winner of the Green Truck

The testing was rigorously monitored and took place on public roads with a mix between highways and rural roads. Conditions that can influence the results, such as traffic and weather, are compensated for by the use of a reference truck. All the trucks have the same brand of tyres, with the same wear and pressure.

This Scania R 410 is the latest of five Scania trucks that have won the coveted title ‘Green Truck’.
