Volkswagen owned, Scania AB, world’s leading commercial vehicle manufacturers, has been instrumental in offering world class transport solutions to the commercial auto market. The company has launched a range of road trucks for a trial run in the country. Scania offers their products and services in the form of P- 360 4×2, P 410 6×2, R500 6×4 and G460 6×4 to Indian markets and has been the result of extensive research as the company offers these products through lower total cost of ownership.

Being offered in the on road haulage segment, these Scania truck models provide reliable and fuel efficient transport solutions which are also low in auto emissions thereby causing lesser impact on the environment. These trucks will cater to growing needs of transportation of long haul materials such as steel, chemicals, bulk transportation and over dimensional cargo transportation.
