Another ‘strong year’ for Scania
Scania, which celebrated its 50th anniversary in the UK in 2014, has reported another ‘strong year’. A total of 301 buses and coaches were registered and Scania’s overall service sales increases significantly. This saw its share of the combined UK bus and coach market increase from 8.3% in 2013 to 9.7% in 2014.
Scania (Great Britain) Ltd MD, Claes Jacobsson, said, ‘Regarding the uptake of Euro6, operators have been quick to embrace our new, fuel efficient technology. Their purchasing decisions have been supported by many independently conducted press tests, which have seen our SCR-only 410hp and 450hp Euro6 engines break fuel economy records throughout Europe.’
‘During 2014 we also further developed our portfolio of operator support services, where products such as Optimise, our driver training and on going driver coaching service, enable our customers to ensure they derive the best possible economy and, hence, maximum return on their investment in Scania. Our sales of used vehicles and Scania Truck Rental also continued to perform well, making 2014 an all-round positive success for Scania in the UK.’
