Scania secures Australia’s first Euro 6 bus fleet order

28 November 2013

The government of the Australian Capital Territory has selected Scania to supply a fleet of 77 Euro 6 city buses. Australian Capital Territory Internal Omnibus Network (ACTION), is the first Australian bus fleet operator to adopt Euro 6 technology. The Federal Government has yet to announce a date for the introduction of Euro 6.

The first deliveries for the fleet of 77, 2-axle city buses with 9-liter engines will take place during the first half of 2014. ACTION has just completed a delivery program for 33 new articulated Scania buses complementing the 26 Scania 14.5-meter buses and 54 Scania CNG buses in the fleet.

The 12.5-meter city buses will be fitted with Australian-designed bodies constructed by Custom, a national bus bodybuilder. The buses will seat 48 passengers with 18 standees.
