XPI INJECTION AND LOW ENTRY ALSO HIGHLIGHT
Colombiabus newsroom – Scania México
After a tough bidding process, Scania has delivered 20 buses in Mexico to the City of Mérida (Yucatán State), for its client Mobility ADO. On this occasion, the K250UB chassis with low entry has been combined with the Beccar Urviabus body, produced in the state of Jalisco. An order that confirms the great strategic vision of both the business and the customers, which the Swedish constructor has put especially in the introduction of sustainable transport solutions.
Scania was the first brand to introduce Euro VI gas engines, and now it does so with diesel engines. First in Guadalajara and now in the southeast of Mexico, promising with these units the improvement of fuel efficiency, and more time available in the operation of its customers.
On the K250UB chassis, the XPI (Ultra High-Pressure Injection) technology stands out, where the fuel feed and injection pressure is set regardless of engine speed and load, with exceptional precision. This sophisticated system continually adjusts to accommodate changes in engine speed and usage, so you can get the most out of every drop of diesel. For each cycle, it performs up to three fuel injections, with precise timing, improving performance and economy, while reducing harmful emissions.
The reduction in pollutant emissions reaches 80% less nitrogen oxides and particulate matter, compared to the same technology in Euro 5, additionally the engines are less noisy, which allows users to offer more comfortable trips. The 12.8 meter buses have a great boarding capacity for passengers, as it is a low entrance, it allows a more comfortable entry for those with reduced mobility.
Here there has been a great joint work between Scania and Beccar, taking advantage of the evolution of the Urviabus model, capable of carrying up to 100 passengers. Adapted to the needs of modern transport and city users: bicycle rack, storage baskets, Braille signage, demarcated seats for the elderly or pregnant women and access ramp for wheelchairs. The chassis offers kneeling system and electronically controlled air suspension.
The K250UB chassis has the DC09 109 engine with 250HP and 1,250Nm of torque, which reaches the wheels thanks to the ZF EcoLife 6-speed fully automatic transmission that includes a retarder. The brakes are disc, including the EBS system that controls the ABS.
Finally, an important part of this bus placement was the training that Scania gave to a group of 7 operators, including 3 women, who took a K 250 Euro V and Euro VI chassis knowledge and familiarization course, in both theoretical and practices with vehicles. The road tests carried out on the peripheral ring corridor of Mérida, locations where these buses will circulate.
