Scania introduces long premium cabs for increased comfort

Scania is creating longer CR23 and CS23 cabs

Scania is raising the bar for premium trucks with the introduction of CR23 and CS23, says Stefan Dorski, senior vice-president, head of Scania Trucks in Sweden.

"We will blend some of the capabilities from our Scania CrewCab into our premium cabs in the R and S series. By doing that, we add generous space that brings extra comfort and opens up for a multitude of creative solutions."


Scania’s decision to offer prolonged cabs built in small series is based on a persistent demand from several markets about cabs with added longitudinal space. The premium S Series sports a flat floor, and with the added length, it will become something of a dream cab for those long-distance drivers who spend many nights away from home.

They can, for instance, have Scania’s expandable bed that’s 100cm wide, without ever having to retract it, the company says. The addition of 27cm to the initial length of 200cm (which is measured from the pedals to the rear wall) may sound minor but represents an increase of more than 13%, something that definitely makes a difference and opens up for many ingenious solutions.

"The most obvious benefit is, of course, for long-distance drivers; they are always on the lookout for comfortable premium solutions," says Stefan.

The extra space is created by adding existing cab components, which is possible thanks to Scania’s renowned modular system. The first deliveries to customers are scheduled to take place in Q3 2021.

Scania New Zealand will advise when they are available at a later date.
