Scania AB and MAN SE are studying the potential for collaboration on component supply and pre-development. The companies are conducting feasibility studies regarding four strategic areas that are not brand-related. The studies cover the potential for:
- Scania and MAN to pursue joint research on hybrid components for heavy trucks and buses
- Scania to adapt its manual gearbox for use in MAN trucks
- Scania to use MAN’s rear axle for heavy applications (36-40 tonnes) and its transfer cases in Scania trucks
- Commodities without affecting brand identity
Detailed evaluations to determine the potential for cost savings will be carried out in the course of further talks.
