After ten years of development work, 10 million Km of testing and an investment of approximately 3 billion NZD, the very eagerly awaited New Truck Generation from Scania was officially released at this year’s National Fieldays in Mystery Creek, Hamilton

In designing the New Truck Generation, Scania put the driver in focus and found the most optimal driver position for best control of the vehicle. Building a prototype driver station, it was possible to move around in the cab to evaluate the most optimal driver position.

The New Truck Generation offers a completely new cab range, with an even wider product offering including the new S-cab with flat floor and L-cab; an entirely new low-entry cab series designed for urban environment applications such as local distribution, waste and construction.

The new Scania truck range includes an expanded engine range now offering options from the new 7-litre 6 cylinder through to the top of the line 730 hp V8 with its 3,500 Nm of torque

Around 45% of all fatal truck accidents are roll-over accidents. This is why Scania are the first in the industry to offer a side curtain airbag in addition to driver’s airbag with seatbelt pre-tensioner, which significantly reduces the risk of injury. Furthermore, Scania offer a lot of safety systems, such as stability control, active emergency braking, EBS, adaptive cruise control and lane departure warning.

With this New Truck Generation, it is clear that Scania is not resting on its laurels. The company is continuously developing new solutions to stay at the forefront of safety, productivity and driving pleasure.

CablePrice and Scania have a long history dating back over 27 years. A relationship that includes milestones such as the 4-series launch in 1996 and the R-series launch in 2006.
