The key was handed over to Ng Aik Chuan, Managing Director, Xin Hwa Holdings Berhad by Thor Brenden, Services Director, Scania Southeast Asia. Witnessing the handover was His Excellency Dr Joachim Bergstrőm, Swedish Ambassador to Malaysia.
A key feature amongst many Scania engine technologies in the Scania NTG Euro V R620A6X4NZ is the Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system that reduces local emissions that contribute to smog and haze.
Committing to the EU emission standard, local emissions are measured in Nitrogen Oxides (NOx), a toxic gas, and particulate matter (PM). Extra High-Pressure Injection (XPI) enhances performance and fuel economy.
Scania says that its mission is to drive the shift towards a sustainable transport system through sustainable partnerships, creating a world of mobility that is better for business, society and the environment. By starting to deliver Euro V vehicles, it helps towards creating a healthier environment in Malaysia.
The R-series sleeper cab that was handed over comes with normal roof height and offers a spacious driver area enabling an optimum driving position. It has good space for storage and installing extra equipment in the cab. It can be equipped with up to two beds.
The design of this New Truck Generation has improved from the previous generation making the truck more user-friendly. A very comfortable adjustable driver seat that is placed closer to the door, with ergonomic dashboard and most importantly the large windscreen with extended view.
It gives clear visibility from the different angles for the drivers making it easier for them to operate in a comfortable and safe environment. Safety features include the Electronic Braking System (EBS) for responsive emergency braking while the retarder provides additional braking power. The standard Opticruise gearbox gives the Scania NTG Euro V a pre-set default Economy mode for better fuel efficiency.
