Scania buses for SANI Express customers

Sani Express refreshes its huge bus fleet with new state of the art Scania buses for better customer comfort, increased safety and greener travel.

Sani Express Sdn Bhd (Sani Express) has just taken delivery of 23 new Scania buses as part of its business practice of changing its fleet.

A handover ceremony took place at Terminal Bersepadu Selatan in Bandar Tasik Selatan today and saw the first batch of the new buses being presented by Marie Sjödin Enström, Scania Southeast Asia Managing Director to Wan Mohd Iskandar Dato’ Salleh, Sani Express Group Managing Director. Iskandar cited performance, reliability, safety, and lower fuel consumption as some of the reasons for choosing Scania as part of its fleet refresh.

“It is important for us to refresh our buses every five years in order to provide our customers with the best service and Scania buses have proven themselves to be the right vehicles for our passengers. The new Scania buses would give us the opportunity to continue providing our customers with comfortable and worry free travel,” commented Iskandar.

Sani Express has purchased Scania’s K410EB6X2 buses that are equipped with Scania Opticruise function, low noise levels with full air suspension for unparalleled comfort levels, electronic braking system (EBS), Scania Retarder, traction control, better fuel economy with a higher torque at lower revs engine, and fully adjustable steering wheel and hanging pedals for the comfort of the driver. The company also subscribes to the Fleet Management System Control 5 package and Scania Driver Training. These features along with the subscribed packages result in a bus that is safe, comfortable and fuel efficient for long distance travel with minimised impact to the environment.

In addition, Sani Express signed up as a Scania Ecolution partner as part of the company’s sustainability efforts to reduce their fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The partnership focuses on reducing operating cost, which translate to improved profitability while fulfilling the growing demand for green initiatives.

Sani Express, a major bus express company in Malaysia that was established back in 2006, offers bus services to close to 30 destinations across Peninsular Malaysia such as Kuala Terengganu, Kuala Besut, Kota Bharu, Kuantan, Alor Star, Kangar, and Kuala Perlis. The company currently owns a total of 45 Scania buses in their fleet and has been a Scania customer since 2008.

“We are very pleased that Sani Express has once again placed their trust in Scania in providing quality vehicles. Today’s handover is a reflection of our on-going commitment to provide customers with the best profitability and sustainability for their business,” stated Marie.

New Public Transport Self-Driving Bus From Scania

Scania NXT bus__2812

Welcome to the NXT future! Scania’s new battery electric self-driving urban concept vehicle is designed with the flexibility to shift from ferrying commuters to and from work in mornings and evenings, delivering goods during the day and collecting refuse at night.

In a bold display of innovation, Scania’s engineers have taken the company’s DNA – the modular system – to the next level in developing a concept vehicle that can change shape for varying urban assignments.

Countless cities are now catalysing change in urban transport, driven by the need for lower emissions and less congestion. Technological and infrastructural advances in electric and autonomous vehicles will be key enablers for cities when shifting to a sustainable transport system.

“NXT is a vision of the future for transport in cities. Several of these technologies have yet to fully mature but for us it’s been important to actually build a concept vehicle to visibly and technically demonstrate ideas of what is within reach,” says Scania’s President and CEO Henrik Henriksson. “NXT is designed for 2030 and beyond while incorporating several cutting-edge features that are already available.”

The eight-metre-long bus module is built as one composite unit, substantially reducing weight. The cylindrical cell batteries are placed under the floor, thereby utilising otherwise dead space as well as contributing to better weight distribution. With the low vehicle weight of less than eight tonnes, the range with present-day batteries is estimated at 245 kilometres.

“Continuous improvement in small steps has been the hallmark of Scania,” says Sjödin. “We are now taking a giant leap into the future. This vehicle will provide invaluable tangible data in our continued development of electrified autonomous vehicles.”
