Scania has produced a Euro 5 engine without exhaust after-treatment. Several new technologies, including a new fuel injection system, are employed to secure performance and fuel efficiency.
It has taken five years’ development at the Scania technical centre in Södertälje in Sweden.
The Euro 5 engine platform is ready for the market, starting with the five and six cylinder inline engines. It will gradually replace the current platform over the next few years.
Euro 5 becomes mandatory within the European Union in October 2009. From the outset the new engine platform has been optimised for EGR, exhaust gas recirculation, and for Scania XPI, a new injection system developed jointly with Cummins.
