PowerTorque Magazine, one of Australia's premier truck publications, has awarded Scania's R 730 flagship one of its two annual awards, for Technology and Innovation.
The awards recognize the significant advances in safety, performance and ability made by truck manufacturers through innovative design and the introduction of new technologies in this highly competitive segment.
“The awesome performance of the Scania R 730 prime mover with its additional high focus on vehicle safety systems makes this vehicle a stand out performer in the Australian heavy truck market,” says Chris Mullett, Publisher of PowerTorque Magazine.
"This combination of a 730 hp engine and the Opticruise automated manual transmission improves efficiency while minimising fatigue levels for the driver. It enables the operator to maintain consistent journey times over our national road network but does so effortlessly. A clear advantage for driver and vehicle safety,” adds Mullett.
