Scania introduces new range of haulage trucks
Like the car market, the Indian truck market is seeing reputed manufacturers setting up shop and offering low cost products.
After significant amounts of research Swedish commercial vehicle maker Scania has introduced four new trucks in India for trial runs. The company’s strategy in India is to offer innovative products and services while keeping total ownership costs low.
The four new trucks include the R 500 6x4, G 450 6x4, P 410 6x2 and the P 360 4x2. They have been designed to be reliable and fuel efficient vehicles for long haul container handling, special bulk transportation and Over Dimensional Cargo (ODC) transportation.
The R 500 6x4 heavy duty puller is powered by a V8 diesel engine that generates 506PS of power with a high-low speed torque rating. The engine is mated to an automatic gearbox called the Scania Opticruise.
