7-kelebihan-bus-eropa-scaniaUnited Tractors, Jakarta – Did you know that in Indonesia, Scania is one of the European bus brands that is loved by bus drivers? The Swedish bus manufacturer has features that make anyone feel comfortable driving it. It’s no wonder that Transjakarta buses entrust Scania to be a means of public transportation in Jakarta.

The advantages offered by Scania make this European bus popular among many bus drivers, especially in terms of comfort. Not only used as  public transportation, but Scania bus chassis are also often used as tourist buses and Antar Kota Antar Provinsi (AKAP) buses.

Scania has two different types of buses: the Coach and the City Bus. Coach is the type of bus used for tourism buses. This type has 3 variants, namely K360IB-4×2, K410CB-6×2*4, and K450CB-6×2*4. The specifications of these buses are not much different. The differences lie in the capacity, engine, and unit length.

The Scania buses mentioned above are equipped with a reliable brake system, such as the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS). This feature on Scania buses is rarely found on other buses. That’s what makes bus drivers idolize Scania. Besides the features in its braking system, what other features can be proud of in Scania European buses? Check out the other advantages of Scania European buses below.

Scania is a bus manufacturer that is committed to realizing a transportation system by always bringing out the latest innovations. One of the technologies embraced by Scania is the Opticruise transmission system. Opticruise is an automatic transmission system developed by Scania, with its clutch control utilizing electro-hydraulic.

The application of electro-hydraulic is intended to make gear shifting smoother. The gearbox construction basis of Opticruise is a manual transmission with a dry clutch mechanism.

This opticruise system has been applied to every Scania bus. Whether Coach or City Bus, Opticruise makes drivers more comfortable operating their vehicle because automatic buses with Opticruise transmission are easier to control and still feel smooth even on rough roads. Both drivers and passengers will experience super comfortable driving throughout the journey.

As a transportation equipment brand with a vision to create better mobility for the environment, Scania prioritizes a sustainable transportation system. As a solution to pollution issues, Scania implements the Euro 5 emission system in Coach Buses.

It has been proven that the  Euro 5 emission standards results in healthier exhaust gas, due to the reduction of nitrogen oxide (NOx) and particulates emitted. With exhaust gas that has minimal polluting emission, the air cleanliness in the surrounding environment is maintained.

AdBlue is urea-containing liquid that can neutralize harmful nitrogen oxides (NOx) into nitrogen and water. Unlike other fuel fluids, AdBlue is not injected into the combustion chamber but sprayed into the exhaust system. With AdBlue, the exhaust emissions produced by buses can reduce excessive pollution.

The safety level of these buses is also maintained by features such as retarder brake, overturn protection, and hill-hold features, which function to prevent the bus from moving  forward or backward suddenly when travelling on uphill or downhill routes.
