Three power levels, along with improved fuel efficiency, lower NVH levels, and reduced weight.

Scania has introduced a new series of 7-litre engines (DC07) intended mainly for city trucks, including the newly launched next-generation P-series, L-series, and CrewCab models aimed at urban applications. All Euro 6 compliant, the new in-line six has been developed together by Scania and Cummins and is based on the widely-used previous generation 6-cylinder engine. The company claims that a great deal of compactness and light-weighting has been achieved with the new engine, along with improved performance and driveability to suit demanding city applications.

The new 6.7-litre power mill features four valves per cylinder, along with fuel injection system sourced from Bosch. The unit boasts a new fixed geometry turbocharger, and uses only selective catalytic reduction (SCR) for the exhaust gas after-treatment to meet Euro 6 emission standards. The new engine will be offered in three state of tunes – 220, 250 and 280 hp, along with standard 88 kW exhaust brake (at 2500 rpm) and choice of Scania Opticruise automated transmission. Plus, it is also compliant for use with 100 percent HVO (Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil) that can give a carbon dioxide reduction of up to 90 percent.

Scania now completes its new truck generation with the launch of city applications models including P-series, L-series, and CrewCab.

As against the Scania’s five-cylinder DC09 family, the new DC07 saves up to 360 kgs (engine weighing around 600 kgs). The unit is also compact, enabling a G-series cab floor to be used in P-series trucks with low-engine tunnel, thereby offering a 95 mm lower engine floor and more storage space.

In addition, Scania´s innovative wireless inductive charging is worth mentioning. This under body charging units built exclusively at the bus stops, so that the battery gets replenished while waiting for passengers. Sources say that a 7-minute charging can extend the driving range of the city buses by 14 kms.

Scania claims that this method of opportunity charging is designed specifically for high-capacity urban routes. The system is already on test in the Swedish city of Södertälje for the brand´s electric-hybrid buses. Volvo Buses, on the other hand, is banking more on the open-source “OppCharge” opportunity charging infrastructure in Europe for its pure-electric and e-hybrid buses.
