Nov 26, 2018

The leading Italian trade magazine Vado e Torno, in collaboration with the Polytechnic University of Milan, has awarded the gas-powered Scania L 340 Sustainable Distribution Truck of the Year. This is Scania’s third consecutive annual award in the category.

The award is based on sustainability and efficiency, not only with regard to emissions but also on safety, smooth driving characteristics, the effects on society and sustainable production.

In its motivation, Vado e Torno highlights the fact that the truck features a normal interior cab height, the City Safe Window that addresses the right-hand side blind spot and the kneeling facility for easy boarding.

“The L-series not only offers a cab created for the city but also fills it with all the technology needed to make the truck really sustainable from a safety perspective,” says Maurizio Cervetto, Editor-in-Chief, Vado e Torno.

The great visibility, braking systems in combination with radar and camera assistance, drowsiness awareness system and the airbags with the Scania-exclusive rollover side curtain airbag are, according to the publication, “just the tip of the iceberg”. “The gas engine and gearbox are state-of-the-art that maximise performance with the minimum consumption and, therefore, environmental impact.”
