Extensive aerodynamic testing. Yet another way Scania contributes to fuel economy.
Wind-tunnel testing is used to refine every surface, every curve and every piece of exterior equipment for optimal aerodynamic performance. The overall shape of the cab is also designed this way. A gradually tapered front end gives the cab a wedge-shaped profile that significantly reduces drag.
Another key factor in airflow optimisation is the cab’s ability to cope with cross-winds. The large radius curves around the entirety of the cab help to achieve this while reducing road spray and internal wind noise.
For a final, but optional aerodynamic touch, side and roof air deflectors may also be attached to the cab. In order to effectively improve fuel economy and ensure that deflectors are attached at the proper angle, drivers and owners are advised to consult their local Scania dealer.
