Scania introduces world’s first gas-fuelled long-distance coach


Recommended Posts

Scania Group Press Release  /  September 5, 2018

At IAA, Scania premiers its new Scania "Interlink" Medium Decker coach for liquefied gas (LNG) operations for a range of up to 1,000 kilometres. Scania hereby extends the broad range of alternative fuel options to sustainable intercity coach journeys.

“Whereas there are several options for carbon-conscious city and suburban bus operators, there have been fewer alternatives in long-distance travel market that we are now addressing,” says Karin Rådström, Head of Buses and Coaches at Scania. “As LNG is becoming increasingly available throughout Europe, as well as in many other parts of the world, this is a timely and viable alternative.”

LNG operations have the potential to reduce CO2 emissions by 20 percent while also substantially reducing nitrogen oxide and particulate matter emissions. Additionally, noise levels are significantly lower. Some countries are also now starting to offer liquified biogas, cutting carbon emissions by 90 percent.

Sustainability is Scania’s guiding theme at IAA and the entire bus and coach line-up is operated on alternative fuels ­– from the Scania "Citywide" LE Suburban hybrid to the Scania "Interlink" High Decker for Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO).

Additionally, Scania showcases its battery electric "Citywide" Low Floor bus, which is presently in regular traffic in the northern Swedish city of Östersund. At IAA, visitors will have the opportunity to experience the bus first-hand on an internal route in the Deutsche Messe trade fair area.
