Scania Citywide is a new range of low-floor and low-entrance buses with distinctive, friendly styling that makes them readily recognisable in an urban environment. The interior has been designed to be warm and welcoming to passengers. Advanced ergonomics will appeal to drivers and the optional adjustable dashboard complies with German standards. Engines are offered for diesel, biodiesel, gas, biogas and bioethanol operation. The buses are built entirely out of aluminium to save weight and facilitate recycling.
Scania's strategy is to provide its customers with complete buses and coaches in every segment and thus continues to extend its portfolio of such vehicles via the worldwide Scania network. The latest addition to Scania's new bus and coach family is the Scania Citywide, styled with strong family ties to the Scania Touring. Scania Citywide is a range of urban and suburban buses comprising various low-floor (LF) and low-entry (LE) configurations that includes two- and three-axle, as well as articulated buses. Powertrain options include engines for diesel/biodiesel, gas/biogas and bioethanol operation, all meeting the EEV emission standard. This means that Scania offers a wide choice of alternative fuel engines, enabling operators to tailor environmental solutions to the demands of most customers. Other emission levels are offered outside the European Union. All Scania Citywide models are built at Scania's bus factory in Słupsk, Poland, a facility established in 1993 that now specialises in building all-aluminium Scania buses. The Scania Citywide has a clear family resemblance with other buses and coaches in Scania's new product range.
