First Scania Euro V truck delivered
Bukit Jelutong, 17 January 2022 – Scania delivered the first Euro V new truck generation (NTG) in Malaysia as part of its sustainable partnership with Xin Hwa Holdings Berhad (Xin Hwa) recently. The key was handed over to Ng Aik Chuan, managing director, Xin Hwa Holdings Berhad by Thor Brenden, services director, Scania Southeast Asia in the presence of His Excellency Dr Joachim Bergstrőm, Swedish Ambassador to Malaysia.
“This Scania New Truck Generation Euro V was specified for Xin Hwa as it has the power and torque that is needed by their operations. We went further by recommending to lower local emissions too by using Euro V,” said Thor.
“And, with Scania Financial Services, Xin Hwa will also benefit from the flexible financing solutions by Scania Credit Malaysia providing it with predictable cost over the entire lifecycle of the truck,” he added.
A key feature amongst many Scania engine technologies in the Scania NTG Euro V R620A6X4NZ is the Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system that reduces local emissions that contribute to smog and haze. Committing to the EU emission standard, local emissions are measured in Nitrogen Oxides (NOx), a toxic gas, and particulate matter (PM). Extra High-Pressure Injection (XPI) enhances performance and fuel economy.
The R-series sleeper cab that was handed over comes with normal roof height and offers a spacious driver area enabling an optimum driving position. It has good space for storage and installing extra equipment in the cab. It can be equipped with up to two beds.
The design of this NTG has improved from the previous generation making the truck more user-friendly. A very comfortable adjustable driver seat that is placed closer to the door, with ergonomic dashboard and most importantly the large windscreen with extended view. Safety features include the Electronic Braking System (EBS) for responsive emergency braking while the retarder provides additional braking power. The standard Opticruise gearbox gives the Scania NTG Euro V a pre-set default Economy mode for better fuel efficiency.
Established on 18 January 2013, Xin Hwa is an investment holding company engaged in the provision of management services. Through its subsidiary Xin Hwa Logistics and Transport Sdn Bhd, it provides integrated logistics services involved in land transportation, warehousing and distribution operations.
