BJ Mercantile Inc., the local distributor of Scania, has recently launched the New Truck Generation in the Philippines. The range of trucks is said to be the result of 10 years of development work paired with more than 10 million kilometers of test driving and is more fuel-efficient, safer and more reliable than ever.

“It is the new biggest investment in the Scania world in the past 20 years, thanks to our skilled engineers, alongside insights from customers, drivers and more than two hundred thousand connected vehicles. “ says Johan Gemback, Regional Sales Director for Trucks, Africa, and the Asia Pacific.

Scania's latest range of truck is said to deliver 5% lower fuel consumption on average thanks to a more advanced drivetrain and improved aerodynamics. Though it might seem like a wall, every surface has been designed to produce minimum drag. Inside, the cabin has been upgraded to give truck drivers more comfort during their journeys. The redesigned cab also provides a better view of the road.

When it comes to safety, Scania offers rollover side curtain airbags as an option in their trucks. Other safety features include an advanced emergency braking system, camera sensors, and other warning systems. To keep the driver safe in case of an accident, the design of the steering column is placed directly beneath the steering wheel to absorb energy impact and reduce impact force to the driver.

Meanwhile, Fleet Management System allows customers to have real-time tracking of the trucks. This also allows them to plan and manage their lineup as well.
