CM’s truck of the week is this 2016 Scania R580 LA 6x2/4 MNA, with Topline sleeper cab.
The 16-plate vehicle with two-pedal Opticruise has 640,000km on the clock, and has been fully maintained by Scania from new. It includes leather seats, navigation equipment, fridge, microwave and coffee maker.
Used truck sales executive at Scania Scotland Scott Mather said: “This truck has done a lot of motorway work between England and Scotland and would be suitable for any operator, big or small that is doing long-haul work. With the power of the 580hp V8 engine it’s also perfect for operators in the Highlands of Scotland or for drivers who travel through areas with hills or mountains.
“We also have different types of warranties available. All of this makes it a very sought after truck that is sure to generate a lot of interest.” Price is available on application.
Earlier this year the manufacturer launched Scania Direct, a pre-owned sales channel that provides a single point of access to used stock from its UK dealer network and is designed to accelerate and simplify the buying process.
It also introduced a used vehicle phone app containing detailed specifications of its trucks for sale, together with full screen images. The app includes search filters to help customers quickly locate the exact type of vehicle they are looking for. Users can save searches as well as email requests for further information to Scania Direct. The app is available from Apple’s App Store (iOS) and Google Play (Android).
