July saw the kick off for Scania’s Irish Dealers Euro 6 Test & Drive event and where better to start than at Scania’s Irish importer anddealer Westward Scania in Strokestown, Co. Roscommon.
Showcasing at the event were Westward’s own Euro 6 demo fleet, a brand new R520 V8, unique in being the only Euro 6 V8 on the truck market, the new R450 Streamline and the award winning R 410 SCR tractor unit. The new 410HP is a close relation to the renowned 12 litre 420HP, much loved by hauliers for its simplicity and fuel consumption. The 450HP is Scania’s SCR/EGR model, capable of running on up to 100 per cent Biofuel, and this engine will be supplemented with a 450HP SCR only engine for hauliers who never want the option of alternative fuels.
Euro 6 has without doubt presented challenges for hauliers and manufacturers alike, but Westward chose to specify trucks geared towards Irish market conditions, resulting in excellent feedback and fuel returns.
The Test and Drive event now continues at Scania Dealers Nationwide and if you haven’t yet heard when your local dealer has these trucks available for test, please contact your local dealer or Westward Scania directly.
