  • Scania’s L-series now paired with the 7-litre engine




    • The innovative low-entry Scania L-series can now be ordered with the DC07 engine
    • A solution for distribution, waste and construction in congested city areas where safety, ergonomics and low weight are in focus
    • In combination with the Scania City Safe Window, camera systems and trained drivers, this constitutes an optimal solution for urban applications


    Scania’s kneeling L-series has all the capabilities that are required of a truck designed for urban areas. With the introduction of the DC07 engine also for the L-series, the load-carrying capacity now increases by some 360 kilos. It is available in three diffe*rent power outputs: 220, 250 and 280 hp.

    With the introduction of the L-series cabs in 2017, Scania made a strong mark in the urban heavy commercial vehicle segment. This was something new – a modularised, low-entry truck with all the capabilities that characterise Scania but with the driver – and boarding – brought down to street level. The L-series affords excellent cross-cab access and relieves physical driver strain while also enabling them to really interact with others, eye-to-eye, in busy traffic environments.

    “Initially, we primarily focused on certain applications with slightly heavier operations by offering the L-series with our five cylinder, 9-litre inline engines,” says Stefan Lindholm, Senior Product Manager, Scania Trucks. “However, what assumed already from the outset was later confirmed. There is a demand for solutions based on the lighter and more flexible 7-litre engine as well.”

    The Scania DC07 was first introduced in 2017 and initially only offered in combination with Scania’s P-series cabs. It is a light-weight, robust and modern inline six engine with a swept volume of 6.7 litres. It offers up to 1200 Nm of torque already from 1050 r/min in its most powerful 280 hp iteration. It features Scania’s in-house designed exhaust gas aftertreatment system with SCR-only technology and can be fitted with engine-driven PTOs. The DC07 was immedi*ately praised by media and customers alike for its smooth performance, low noise and fuel-efficiency.

    “Yes, it was very well-received,” confirms Lindholm. “It’s Scania’s smallest truck engine in a long time. But it still carries all the well-known brand characteristics: class-leading fuel-efficiency, our low-rev philosophy and the ability to run on 100 percent HVO or FAME, out of the box, with up to 90 percent carbon-dioxide reduction.”

    A driving force behind the increased demand for “city solutions” are local regulations and a growing awareness about safety:

    “Hauliers operating in city areas are facing stricter – and fully justified – demands regarding noise, emissions and the ability to integrate in demanding traffic and interact with pedestrians and cyclists,” says Lindholm. “An L-series tipper truck with a crane, propelled by a DC07 and with cameras and a Scania City Safe Window in the pass*enger door, can be the ideal maintenance vehicle.”

    Scania believes that typical customers for the new combination will be found amongst hauliers and entrepreneurs that wish to ensure flawless daily operations in in urban areas. These are companies that distribute goods, collect refuse and are active in building or maintaining infrastructure. In these types of operations, good visibility, superior driver environment in combination with favourable total operating economy are decisive.

    L-series cabs are available in three different roof heights: low, normal and high. If ordered with the kneeling function, it takes just one step to enter into the cab with a floor height around 80 centimetres. Typical axle configurations for urban application rigids are 4×2 or 6×2*4 (with Scania’s electrically steered tag axle).

    “Trucks such as there often operate in distribution, but we see more and more tailor-made, construction-oriented trucks as well,” says Stefan Lindholm, Senior Product Manager, Scania Trucks. “Many construction vehicles spend most time on congested city streets. Here, an L-series tipper with the DC07 280 hp and the right gearing could be ideal. Add Scania Zone as well to support the driver, and you have a full-fledged Scania beast for the asphalt jungle.”

    Scania Zone is a position-based service for automatic vehicle adjustment. It supports drivers in adhering to traffic and environmental regulations, enabling sustainable truck operations with increased safety for residents.

    Re: VW Passat 2.0tdi DSG 2015 28,000 ml engine stalled in rush hour traffic

    I'd let the professionals do it and make it their responsibility to do it right. Just my opinion.

    Re: Genuine reverse emblem camera boot opening when reverse selected

    I think I found when fixing a stuck latch on our Touran that is a "going low" from 12V to 0V that sends boot release signal to control module.

    Re: Shock absorbers

    From my experience, KYB shocks were always stiffer then OEM...
    I will go with Sachs or Bilstein....
    My opinion only....
