Buslovers Stay safe, work easily and save fuel. All in an iconic Scania.
At Scania, we take extreme care in every detail. We have added generations of testing in ergonomics, aerodynamics and reliability. All to ensure the best possible driving environment, inside and out. source
Ergonomics and comfort
Start up, relax and focus on what you do best. The driving position in a Scania bus or coach will suit the tallest, smallest or heaviest occupant. A wide range of adjustments gives maximum scope for drivers to find exactly the right position for a comfortable, relaxed posture. With a firm grip on the wheel, every principal control is within fingertip reach. The steering column position is also adjustable. Visibility around the vehicle requires no more than small movements of the head if not a mere flick of the eyes.
Active or passive, optional or built-in, you can rest assured that with Scania safety features, you and your passengers are always in good hands.
Active safety is all about making the driving of your vehicle as secure as possible, with the aim of minimising road risks, collisions and other incidents that could lead to injury. Active safety is centred around giving the driver better feedback and control. To this end, we at Scania are constantly at work to improve visibility, handling, braking and stability. Passive safety focuses on design aspects that minimise the consequences resulting from a collision – consequences that affect the driver, the passengers and the occupants of other vehicles. This includes structural integrity, instrument positioning and dispersion of impact forces. Together, this dual approach creates an effective buffer around each driver, to protect against both the risks and results of driving accidents.
We constantly test and evaluate the structural integrity of our vehicles
To better ensure passenger safety, Scania has conducted a unique rollover test. The test was performed according to the European requirements specified in ECE R66, which specifies that deformation of the bus body during a rollover may not compromise a pre-determined survival area. Calculations are continuously performed as new buses are developed.
Scania’s proactive approach to the improvement of passenger and crash safety was affirmed the instant that a car travelling at 40 km/h hit the side of one of Scania’s city buses on the company’s test track. The model in question was the OmniCity – Scania’s low-floor city bus. In the absence of a comparable European standard, the test was carried out in accordance with the provisions of the US Standard Bus Procurement Guidelines.
This standard specifies that penetration of the bus by the car under these conditions must not exceed 75 mm. This was achieved by a comfortable margin. The car also survived the test well, with the passenger compartment fully intact after the crash. Authentic crash tests like this verify Scania’s design calculations and also help to build a bank of experience for future generations of buses.
