Scania launches new generation construction truck range

Swedish commercial vehicle manufacturer, Scania, has launched its construction industry XT truck range.

“This industry is facing increasing demands for sustainable and cost-effective production,” said Scania President and CEO, Henrik Henriksson. “Each component in the complex construction logistics process must adapt to higher standards for efficiency and Scania XT is our contribution to this shift.”

The new construction range is the second stage in Scania’s introduction of new generation trucks, which has been in development for over a decade with an investment that has reportedly exceeded $2.9 billion.

Scania has said the XT trucks have engine power outputs that range from 280 to 730hp.

“We are putting a higher emphasis on construction,” said Henriksson. “We now have the right products, the right services and the right skills to match Scania’s leading position in long-distance vehicles.

“The global construction industry continues to grow and Scania now presents enhanced tools to meet the demand. We are well aware of the slim margins for many hauliers in this business and we have developed vehicles and solutions to ensure sustained profitability,” he said.

According to Scania Australia: “While Scania in Australia is keen to add these vehicles to our range in due course, local specification and compliance work has not yet been undertaken, so their arrival is still a considerable way off.”
