Scania is now adding yet another environmentally oriented alternative to its industry-leading palette with Euro 6 certified truck engines. The Scania 16-litre, 580 hp V8 engine can now be ordered in a configuration with up to 100 percent biodiesel operation (EN 14214) in the R-series. Scania thus has five different engines for biodiesel operation in its range, with a power span of 320-580 hp.
