Scania has unveiled the final element in its Euro 6 V8 engine range – the 3,500 Nm and 730 hp Scania V8.
The company introduced its 520 hp and 580 hp Euro 6 V8 engines earlier this year, promising customers it would launch its top-output V8 by year’s end.
Scania’s Euro 6 V8 engines are the only ones on the market and the arrival of the 730 hp V8 now gives customers three choices. Customers choose Scania V8s for features including performance, operating economy and durability.

“Sheer power never goes out of style,” says Christopher Podgorski, Senior Vice President Trucks at Scania. “Our customers buy V8 trucks for many different reasons, but an understandable need for performance is always one of them. The fact that our customers buy V8 trucks over and over again proves that they are durable and offer unsurpassed productivity as well.”
Scania’s legendary V8 engines were first introduced in 1969 and have established a unique market position all over the world. Scania’s 730 hp engines have a reputation for offering never-ending power, high productivity and a lasting value. All three Scania V8 engines are based on the 16.4-litre platform that was originally introduced with the 730 hp engine in 2010. Scania’s Euro 6 V8 engines use a water-cooled EGR system combined with SCR technology and a variable geometry turbo in order to achieve Euro 6 emission levels. The silencer unit is only slightly bigger than the best-in-class unit used for Scania’s inline six engines. This means that generous chassis space is left for fuel tanks and AdBlue tanks.
