Scania has presented a new option for the new generation of trucks. Like the other Swedish truckbrand now Scania also offers an electric handbrake. This is not the standard brake, but an option. Another option is the ‘Clutch on demand.’ The clutch pedal can be ignored but when the driver decides he wants more control he can use it. In some disciplines of transport this comes very handy.
Also new in the Scania options list is a mechanical nightlock. With this lock the driver can lock him self in the cab and that is a safe feeling. Scania is not the first with this solution. DAF trucks was the first brand to offer this safety device, followed by Renault Trucks.
