A German fan of iepieleaks sent us this photo of a Scania G410 with CNG tanks. The licence plate holders say the truck is a G340 CNG but the type badge is clear about that, this is a G410. Scania officialy launched the new generation of gas trucks but the focus was mainly on LNG. This photo shows that Scania customers have the choise between LNG and CNG. Iveco does it the same way, but Volvo only comes as LNG.
The new engine provides 410 hp and gives 2,000 Nm from 1,100 and through to 1,400 r/min – respectable figures that compare well with diesel engines of a similar size. With LNG (liquefied natural gas) in its tanks, a typical semi-trailer truck with a gross weight of up to 40 tonnes can drive 1,100 kilometres without refuelling under favourable conditions. With twin LNG tanks on a rigid truck, the range is approximately 1,600 kilometres.
