And the beat goes on

When Scania unveiled the 350 hp V8 engine in 1969, it was Europe’s most powerful diesel truck engine, and it remained so for many years. Scania has been continuously refining this engineering masterpiece ever since.

True to Scania’s continuous improvement philosophy, the New Truck Generation launched in August 2016 now sports an adapted V8 engine whose fuel efficiency and reliability are even better than before. Our approach to continuous improvement is best summed up by the maxim: "Every new truck that leaves Scania should be a better truck than the previous one.”

Scania’s modular design gives the engineers the opportunity to refine details of an engine or a complete truck, and to find ways of improving features while retaining the reliability of tried and tested solutions. This leads to a better overall performance.

At Scania we never stop developing, never stop improving. And the beat goes on...
