Spotlight on Scania emergency vehicles

Beginning in May in China, a number of events and exhibitions throughout the year will display Scania’s fire and rescue vehicles. The events will be arranged by local distributors in Asia and Europe.

“Fire vehicles built on Scania chassis are continually entering new markets,” says Mats Brodin, Product Manager Fire Vehicles. “Fire brigades appreciate our high-quality chassis, comfortable cabs and safety features. Our chassis are easy to use for fire vehicle bodybuilders, which are the main players in the fire vehicle business.”

The planned events will showcase a variety of vehicles, many of them equipped with Scania CrewCab, an impact-tested safety cab with four entry doors and room for six to eight people.

Scania has more than 100 years of experience building chassis for firefighting vehicles. Sales are strongest in Scandinavia, Great Britain, Latin America and in certain Asian markets.

To highlight Scania’s long association with firefighting vehicles, a selection of vintage, veteran and modern fire trucks will be displayed in the Scania Museum, a part of Scania Visitor Centre located close to the company’s head office in Södertälje, Sweden. The exhibition runs from 10 June until 30 August.
