Scania Trucks receive overwhelming praises during Scania’s Test and Drive 2019
The New Truck Generation by Scania received overwhelming praises and positive responses from customers and guests during the New Truck Generation Test and Driver 2019 that was held at Malaysia Agro Exposition Park Serdang (MAEPS).
For The Customers and Fans
The week-long event saw around 300 invited customers, guests, fans as well as members of the media flocking MAEPS to experience driving Scania’s New Truck Generation in a safe and controlled environment. Participants praised the performance and features of the New Truck Generation after having the chance to maneuver a Scania G410A6X2 New Truck Generation across two choices of routes within MAEPS.
One praise came from Alex Lai of Mansang Logistics Sdn Bhd who commented that “the features of the New Truck Generation have improved greatly from the older generation as many things have been simplified making the truck more user friendly, very comfortable and most importantly the clear visibility from the different angles.
The truck itself is more enhanced and very powerful. Safety feature such as the improved response from the braking system is also a plus point for Scania’s New Truck Generation.”
From the driver’s perspective, enhancements have been made to provide an enriched driver’s environment as noted by Mohamad Hasni from Yeap Transport and Trading Company.
“The cabin is one of a kind. Adjustable seat that is close to the door, ergonomic dashboard with touchscreen, and large windscreen with extended view make it easier for the driver to operate in a comfortable and safe environment. Scania has truly designed a truck that is focused on the customers and the drivers needs,” Mohamad Hasni elaborated.
“I am very grateful for all the guests who took the time to test & drive the New Truck Generation from Scania. I am even more inspired by the feedback that I have gotten from them. Our guests definitely saw the features that we can offer, felt the performance of the truck and also believe that this truck can help lower operating cost, increase revenue and profitability for their businesses,” stated Scania Southeast Asia Managing Director, Marie Sjödin Enström.
The New Truck Generation by Scania is the result of 10 years in development and SEK 20 billion (RM 10 billion) worth of investment with more than 12 million kilometres of test- driving. Launched earlier this year, the New Truck Generation is designed and engineered to give Scania truck owners better fuel efficiency and lower CO2 emissions as it is equipped with advanced powertrain and aerodynamic solutions that consume an average of 3 percent less fuel. Other features of the New Truck Generation include new chassis design, extended storage options, and enhanced safety features such as the award- winning rollover side curtain airbags, which is a first in Malaysia.
“As a business, Scania has been at the forefront of providing sustainable transport solutions to our customers. Our New Truck Generation will serve as the vehicle to carry the momentum of economic progress with reduced carbon footprint as we work towards our new 2050 commitment of achieving net-zero emissions,” added Marie.
