Heartache for V8 Scania fans

Scania announced this week that due to an ongoing strike since June 14th with suppliers of casted engine components they would be unable to fulfil over 2000 trucks ordered with V8 engines.Christian Levin, Executive Vice President and Head of Sales and Marketing quotes:“I deeply regret that we are currently unable to offer customers the Scania V8 engine, which is the industry benchmark and part of our company’s DNA.

Our sales organisation is now focusing on being able to offer alternative 13-litre engines or other solutions to ensure that affected customers can meet commitments to their customers.

It is simply about ensuring that we make every effort to maintain our customers’ confidence.”
