Scania won the ‘Green Truck’ title for the fifth time in a row. The press test competition is organized by two leading German trade magazines, ‘Trucker’ and ‘Verkehrs- Rundschau’. This year, the organizers stipulated a gross train weight of 32 tonnes and up to 430 hp for the trucks that took on the 360 km test track north of Munich. Scania entered an R 410 tractor that managed to score the best test result: the truck’s average consumption was measured at 23.53 litres per 100 km, while Scania also managed the highest average speed, reaching 80.60 km/h.
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’.
