For urban and intercity operations, Scania offers the new Interlink bus, which is available in different configurations and more efficient engines.
A Scania launched the new Interlink bus, which is designed to provide regular urban and intercity transport services, regular specialized services and occasional services (rentals).
High flexibility is one of Scania Interlink’s strengths, with various configurations available in terms of lengths, interior layout, luggage compartments, doors, classification, powertrains, among others.
The new Interlink was built from a new chassis, which includes longer two-axle options with greater passenger capacity, as well as gas engines, which complement other solutions with lower emissions: biodiesel (FAME), HVO or hybrids.
The exterior design seeks to be an expression of the Swedish brand’s current style language, highlighting the generously sized side windows, Bi-LED or Bi-Halogen headlights and new side and rear lights.
The sliding doors are electric and have been designed to guarantee longer uptime and lower maintenance costs. The passenger compartment was designed to be quieter, thanks to the adoption of new materials, and also more energy efficient, as the climate control system minimizes energy consumption.
The interior design has also been designed to be more appealing and pleasant for passengers.
The area dedicated to the driver also received special attention from the Scania engineering team. The driving area offers excellent ergonomics and accessibility, better climate control, as well as safety features.

Visibility and wide turning radius contribute to better driving. Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) provide proper vehicle control through improved handling, steering and braking assistance. This, together with Scania Zone, which ensures compliance with speed regulations near educational establishments and other locations, increases safety and helps to minimize accidents, thus avoiding unnecessary costs.
In terms of energy, Scania Interlink allows for a reduction of up to 8% in fuel consumption compared to the next model, which is due to the optimization of the efficiency of the engine and gearbox. The new Start/Stop function and cruise control help to improve efficiency.
Scania Interlink gets an independent front suspension that not only increases ride comfort, but also increases load capacity.
Scania’s new intercity bus is designed to limit damage and prevent deformation of components such as the steering system, aftertreatment system or batteries, which are key to minimizing downtime and costly repairs.
Uptime is further increased through easy-to-replace front corners, better cleaning and, last but not least, through vehicle compatibility with Scania Flexible Maintenance, based on proactive, real-time data.
