Scania delivers gas truck first

Scania has delivered the world’s first Euro 6 gas truck to a customer based in Sweden. Bring Logistics is a major Nordic road transport operator with a declared ambition of offering its customers the latest environmental solutions.

“We are keen to give our customers access to the latest in environmental technology,” said Arne Karlsson, president of Bring Frigo Åkeri AB. “Euro 6 is the new standard we are offering our customers, entering into force from next year.

“The new distribution truck from Scania has impressive performance and, running on biogas, the emissions are very low of both harmful substances and CO2.”

Scania’s gas engines are designed to provide the same performance as a diesel engine. Power ratings for Euro 6 are 280 and 340 bhp, with torque ratings of 1350 and 1600 Nm.
