“The accelerating urban growth in the world is largely rapid suburbanisation rather than expanding city centres. That means longer commuter trips to work and, in fact, suburban public transport presently consumes three times more fuel than city centre transport. Thus, we need a greater focus on finding non-fossil alternatives for these journeys,” says Karin Rådström, Head of Buses and Coaches at Scania.

Scania is also premiering its battery electric Scania Citywide Low Floor bus at Busworld. This bus will go on sale in 2018.

“Scania has the most comprehensive range with the widest selection of alternative fuels in the market,” says Rådström. “Scania provides operators with an outstanding freedom of choice to, with retained total operating economy, make the necessary shift to more sustainable passenger transport services.”
