Scania Introduces New Naming Convention For S-Series Models With Flat-Floor Sleeper Cabs

Scania recently introduced a new naming convention that will only affect its S-series models at the request of Mercedes-Benz parent company Daimler AG, and it will apply to S-series trucks produced from this point forward. Rather than the series letter followed by the horsepower figure, Scania will now swap them to become, for example, the 450 S and 730 S. The company adds that this “applies only to the sleeper cabs with a flat floor.”


“By making this adjustment, we fulfill an agreement we have made with Daimler,” says Alexander Vlaskamp, senior vice president and head of Scania Trucks. “We are keen about protecting our brands and recognise why Daimler, with their long-standing S-class passenger car history, had an issue with the S-series trade name.”

Transmission options include 8-speed and 8+1-speed range gearboxes or 12-speed and 12+2-speed range-splitter gearboxes.
