Lightweight, maneuverable general transportation
With the general freight and distribution market ever-expanding, the Scania P Series is set for a good run as a lightweight, fuel-efficient 6x4 prime mover for a range of applications. For short range transportation, construction and both local and regional distribution the Scania P 400 or 440 is built to handle the job, efficiently and competently.
Specs and Features
The P series in available in 400 and 440 horsepower options and versatile cab formats. The engine is the Scania DC 13 litre, inline 6 cylinder with electronic fuel injection and clean Euro 5 SCR rating and drivers report it is very quiet on the road. The 14 speed overdrive gearbox features the sleek operation Scania Opticruise with a fully automated clutch. The front suspension features 2 x 32 parabolic springs and on the rear, Scania 4 bag air suspension.
The Scania P 400 and 440 feature a short cab design, making them ideal for urban application, negotiating crowded construction sites and manoeuvring into tight bays at distribution centres. The shorter cab allows for reduced weight and additional payload area but more importantly for optimal axle placement to facilitate a tight turning radius.
The P cabs on this Scania model range are available in a choice of two sleeper, a day cab and a short cab format, making this equally suitable to overnight and over the road applications. The accommodation is compact but of a very high standard with thoughtful inclusions. Plenty of working space, easy access to the cab, a great convenience for those on multi-delivery routes, and comfortable driving conditions.
The premium driver seat is fitted with an armrest and has fully adjustable settings to allow for a wide range of drivers. The steering wheel is also adjustable. The interior is comfortable and well laid out with an efficient air conditioning to cope with Australian summers.
Other interior features include power windows, resettable circuit breakers, clearly visible dash display, steering wheel operated cruise control, AM/FM radio and CD player and CB and mobile phone functionality through the radio controls. The bed is a generous 700mm wide and the cab includes curtains.
