Popular commercial vehicle manufacturer Scania has launched a new range of trucks for trial runs in India. The company says that it undertook extensive research prior to launching these new trucks in the country.
The CV manufacturer has brought the R 500 6×4, the G 460 6×4, the P 410 6×2 and the P 360 4×2 to the country. Mr. Nekzad J. Parabia, Director J.H. Parabia (Transport) Pvt. Ltd., Baroda said: “We value this relationship with Scania. Our expectations on the V8 engine truck are not only based on the high torque rating, but also that it should be a better powertrain for tough transportation assignments. We look forward to a mutually beneficial relationship.”
Speaking during the launch, Henrik Fagrenius, Managing Director, Scania Commercial Vehicles India said, “Today is an important milestone for all of us at Scania. We believe that Indian truck buyers will have the benefit of an added choice – trucks with outstanding fuel performance and reliability that offer them value for their investment.”
The Scania R 500 6×4 is a heavy-duty puller and is powered by a 500 horsepower V8 engine. With the automated gear changing system Scania Opticruise, this will be the first of its kind in the Indian market to carry the Over Dimensional Cargo across the country.
The Scania G 460 6×4 heavy duty puller is powered by a 460 hp engine and is also equipped with the Scania Opticruise that helps the driver to cruise with ease and comfort.
The Scania P 410 6×2 prime mover comes with a powerful 410 hp coupled with a liftable tag axle tailored to long haul transport.
The Scania P 360 4×2 prime mover is powered by a 360 hp engine and comes across as a very good option for long distance freight transportation.
