At the recent New Truck Generation Test and Drive 2019 event at the MAEPS, Scania also had the handover ceremony of the New Truck Generation to two customers, Mekar Angkut Sdn Bhd (Mekar Angkut) and Tasik Bintang Transport and Trading Sdn Bhd (Tasik Bintang). Mekar Angkut, part of the Konsortium E-Mutiara group of companies, decided to purchase 5 G360A4X2NA Scania New Truck Generation as their first time purchase after being satisfied with the performance of Scania busses that are operating under Konsortium E-Mutiara.
On the other hand, Tasik Bintang, an existing Scania customer with 12 Scania trucks in their fleet, purchased a total of 9 New Truck Generation by Scania as a sign of confidence in the performance and reliability of Scania trucks.
Since the launch of the New Truck Generation, many transport and logistics companies have been purchasing the trucks as a show of the industry’s confidence in Scania as well as the increased industry focus towards sustainable transport solutions.
The foundation of Scania XT is a highly robust heavy-duty bumper that protrudes 150 millimetres in front of the cab front. It lends the vehicle a distinctive appearance that signals both strength and robustness. In addition, Scania XT customers can opt for different local interior and exterior trim packages, which contribute enhanced productivity and reinforce the impression of unyielding solid force.
Built for a hard life
The powerful bumper protrudes 150 millimetres and provides an attack angle of around 25 degrees, depending on the configuration in term of choice of tyres and chassis. In combination with a skid plate and headlamp protection mesh, the XT version has a particularly robust and rugged front, which easily copes with any fairly heavy impact or collision with objects without any damage to the underlying structure. At the centre there is an easily accessible towing bolt that is classified for 40 tonnes, which is welcome if the vehicle has to pull something out or should it need assistance when laden.
