BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT

Thanks to the improved climate in the commercial vehicles business, fiscal year 2010 was a very successful one for the Scania brand. One particular highlight was the presentation of the new V8 truck range. With up to 730 PS and torque of 3,500 Nm, the new V8 packs a more powerful punch than any other truck in the world.

In the past year, the Swedish manufacturer also launched its “Ecolution by Scania” program. This is an end-to-end package of environmentally friendly products and services, tailored to the individual needs of its customers. With the aid of CO2-optimized vehicle specifications, driver training and eco-maintenance, Scania was able to reduce fuel consumption and emissions sustainably. This means that the program benefits the environment and boosts the efficiency and profitability of its customers’ vehicle fleets.

The time-honored Swedish brand delivered 63,712 units worldwide in 2010, 46.7% more than in the previous year. Demand was significantly higher than in 2009, above all in Brazil (+80.6%), Europe (+25.2%) and the Asia-Pacific region (+22.9%).

The number of buses delivered increased from 6,636 to 6,875 units year-on-year. However, the pre-crisis level has not yet been matched.

The Scania brand produced a total of 67,663 (35,809) commercial vehicles in the reporting period. This includes the number of buses produced, which increased from 6,236 to 6,700 units.
