Secret spy Scania shots?

A couple of spy photos have been published by European truck magazines purporting to be the shape of things to come from Scania. The images show a disguised truck in wintry conditions on Scandinavian roads.

 

 

The consensus seems to believe the new cabin is a Scania design but the shape seems more reminiscent of an Iveco. Scania are probably due a new cabin design as the current model is an evolution from an original design from the early nineties. Two of their main rivals, Mercedes Benz and Volvo have both unveiled brand new cabin designs in the past couple of years, Daf and Iveco have redesigned their existing cabin, Scania don’t want to be left behind. Another truck manufacturer in Europe is also due a new cab design, MAN. Coincidentally, both MAN and Scania are owned by Volkswagen, a common cab for the two brands? We doubt it, but you never know.

 

 

The vertical door handles are advanced by some as a clue to the truck coming from Sodertalje, Scania’s headquarters just outside Stockholm. Also the side panels and roof line do look a little Scania-ish.
