Swedish truck maker Scania AG displayed the second generation P 410 tipper truck at the recently concluded EXCON 2013 show in Bangalore.

The new P 410 was displayed by Scania in collaboration with Larsen & Toubro. Scania was already selling this very P 410 in India by importing it from its Zwolle factory in the Netherlands. It was marketed in India by L&T. The one displayed at the EXCON 2013 is being manufactured in a newly established facility near Bangalore.

The new P 410 uses DC13 107 series 12.7-liter six-cylinder engine that puts out a healthy 410 bhp and peak torque of 2,000 Nm. The in-line engine with Scania’s PDE injection system is Euro 3 compliant and is mated to a 12-speed range splitter gearbox with overdrive and two gears allocated separately for crawling and reversing. The driver of the new P 410 gets a fully air-conditioned cabin with fully adjustable suspended seats.

Scania began production of its trucks (starting with the P 410) recently at the Rs 250 crore facility outside Bangalore, inaugurated late in October. Scania has made a deal with L&T to market its mining trucks, while its general trucks and buses will be marketed directly by the Swedish manufacturer.
