Scania’s new Interlink urban/intercity bus28 January 2022

Scania’s new Interlink is mainly intended for use in urban environment and intercity traffic. It has new chassis and body and is said to offer fuel savings of up to 8%, alongside a range of specification options, safety features, uptime services and an updated driver area

New options include longer two-axle buses with increased passenger capacity as well as shorter gas buses. “The wide range of low-carbon powertrains is also a part of the flexibility. We provide biodiesel (FAME), HVO, biogas, and hybrid options that significantly reduce CO2 emissions today,” says Karolina Wennerblom, head of product management, Scania Buses & Coaches.

Improved engine and gearbox efficiency contributes to fuel savings claimed to be up to 8%. New stop/start function and cruise control contribute to further reductions. The bus independent front suspension is described as increasing ride comfort while increasing load capacity by 500 kg. The vehicle is designed to limit damage and avoid deformation of components such as steering system, aftertreatment system or batteries, critical to minimise downtime and costly repairs. Uptime is further increased via exchangeable front corners, improved cleanability, and not least through the vehicle´s compatibility with the proactive and real-time data based Scania Flexible Maintenance.

Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) give the driver good control of the vehicle through improved assisted handling, steering and braking. This, along with Scania Zone that ensures driver compliance with speed regulations around schools and elsewhere, increases safety and helps minimise accidents, thereby also avoiding unnecessary costs.

The new exterior has a contemporary expression with larger side windows, Bi-LED or Bi-Halogen headlights and new sidelights and rear lights. The electric sliding doors result in higher uptime and lower maintenance cost, and indoors, new materials reduce noise.
