Scania Trucks: All You Want To Know

Established in 1891 in Malmo, Sweden, Scania is one of the leading manufacturers of heavy trucks and buses in the world. Its head office is located in Sodertalje, Sweden. Sodertalje also houses the Scania’s Research & Development faculty with around 3,300 employees. Scania has concentrated its efforts to the heavy transport segment unlike other truck manufacturers who have a share in all segments of truck manufacturing. Scania has continued to make profits even during sluggish truck sales around the globe. Scania is one of the very few companies that have reported a profit every year for more than 7 decades.

Scania has a network of sales and service in more than 100 countries with its production units located in Latin America and Europe. Scania trucks are noted for their low fuel consumption and excellent performance. With top class build quality, Scania trucks can carry huge amount of payloads for long hauls. Scania has approximately 38,600 employees, out of which around 16,000 work in Scania’s own subsidiaries across the world while around 12,400 of them work in regional production centers in six countries.

Scania has rolled out a number of models of trucks that have conquered the industry. Let us have a look at the two most sought after creations of Scania:

The R Series of Scania can appropriately be called the crown of Scania series. It competes against models such as The Mercedes Actros or the Volvo FH in the 44 ton segment. Scania R series was named the International Truck of The Year in the year 2010. It shall not be an overstatement to say that R series from Scania is the most beautiful truck in its segment. Its more pronounced horizontal strips and bumper fitted LEDs make it appear different from its contemporaries. Equipped with the Opticruise gearbox with OPC5 management system, Scania R series is a statement in itself. Manual and automatic mode can be selected with just a push of the button with the Opticruise technology.

Scania P series is known to be the most light weight and fuel efficient model among all Scania trucks. The range is equipped with cabs available in 5 formats viz. one day cab, three sleepers and one short cab. The trucks of this series are known to give ample space to the driver. All five cabs have compact dimensions and standard working accommodations. The engine output of Scania P series range from 230 HP to 420 HP and it provides a torque of nearly 2100 Nm. Besides reduced weight and more space for payload, shorter cabs are suited for traversing through congested areas. Shorter cabs also allow optimal axle placement when less turning radius is a necessity.

It goes without saying that the life of an automotive lies in the battery. Scania truck battery is mounted at the rear of the truck which frees a lot of frame space. Besides this, a rear mounted truck battery also puts extra weight on the rear axle which increases traction when the truck is running without any load. There is no denial that with several models of batteries and trucks it can be a tough task to choose the right battery.

“What a great idea, I don’t drive far but to have Roadside Response available when I need it, awesome”

Rebecca T.
Geelong, VIC

I just want to thank you for getting to my house so fast. The car didn’t want to start this morning and I needed to get to work. The guy who changed the battery was real friendly and I was able to get to work almost on time (only 12 minutes late).

Lana Wilkinson

I wanted to drop a quick note to say that although Garry had to fight a lot of traffic to get to me he was very professional, friendly and helpful.

Thomas Do

Keero was really helpful over the phone. He asked a couple of questions and we figured out straight away that the problem was most likely a dead battery. Phil was in the area and arrived in less than 40 minutes. Got a new battery and I was back up and running again. Thanks guys.

James Burrett

Thanks for the great service. I didn’t realise that getting a battery delivered and installed cost less than buying it in the shops. I’ll be telling all my mates about Roadside Response.

Ross Mulligan

I used your battery replacement service yesterday and want to compliment you on the quality of service supplied by your team and especially the representative who attended my request. I am very satisfied with the solution he provided.
