Scania Super continuing Green Truck domination

Scania Super

Scania has continued its domination of a heavy vehicle sustainability award, with the Scania Super being named the ‘Green Truck’ of the year by a German judging panel.

Manufacturers across Europe are invited each year to a comparison test organised by two German trade magazines, Trucker and VerkehrsRundschau, which complete the judging of the trucks.

Scania came second last year, but claimed the award again in 2024 to make it seven out of the last eight tests, and nine out of the 14 times total the competition has been run.

“Scania participates in many press tests in Europe, but the Green Truck Award really focuses on what is an absolute core requirement in our industry – offering customers the best possible transport efficiency,” says Stefan Dorski, senior vice president and head of Scania Trucks.

“Our Super-based powertrain was introduced in 2021 and brought a new performance level to the market, with its eight per cent fuel-savings that our customers now benefit from in their daily operations.

“We at Scania are very proud and happy at having regained the title as the most efficient long-haul truck in the world.

“Consuming less fuel means that our trucks contribute a lot for curbing CO2 emissions, since so much of the world’s transports is still dependent on combustion engines.”

Part of the judging for the award involves a formula that tests the aspects most relevant to sustainability for the truck – fuel consumption, average speed, used AdBlue volume and the weight of the truck.

Over 100km of distance, the average difference for the Scania Super compared to the runner-up was 0.41 litres of fuel.

Taking into perspective the fact that a long-haul truck travels something like 150,000 km each year, this makes Scania’s more than 600 litre per year better off than the nearest competitor.

At 7040 kg, the Scania truck was also the lightest vehicle, and achieved the highest average speed, at 79.70 km/h.
