 and two-speed gearbox. A year later, the first order was placed for a Vabis commercial vehicle. By 1907, the company had developed a 3-ton truck, however, though it won a Swedish Royal Automobile Club award in 1909, the new range was a financial disaster for the company, failing to attract more than a handful of orders.

Maskinfabriks-aktiebolaget Scania was founded in 1900 in Malmö

, and was in the beginning a manufacturer of bicycles, but by 1903 the first cars left the factory. Two years later, Scania built their first truck.

Merger

Following the financial problems at Vabis, the companies merged in 1911, creating AB Scania-Vabis
Scania-Vabis
Scania-Vabis was a Swedish truck and car manufacturer. The company was formed from a merger of Scania with the firm of Vabis in 1911. The car production ended in 1929...

. Engine and car production was moved to Södertälje, and truck production took place in Malmö.

World War I and 1920s

For the next few years the company's profits stagnated, with around a third of their orders coming from abroad. The outbreak of World War I, however, changed the company, with almost all output being diverted to the Swedish Army

. By 1916, Scania-Vabis was making enough profit to invest in redeveloping both of their production facilities.

Following the war, in 1919, Scania decided to focus completely on building trucks, abandoning other outputs including cars and buses. However, they were hurt by the swamping of the market with decommissioned military vehicles from the war, and by 1921 the company was bankrupt.

After some economic difficulties in 1921, new capital came from Stockholms Enskilda Bank

. In 1914, the factory produced Denmark's first Scania-Vabis truck, and following this developed a V8 engine

During World War II Scania produced a variety of military vehicles for the Swedish Army, including Stridsvagn m/41

 with their new Regent truck which was introduced in 1954.

During this period, Scania-Vabis was to expand its dealer network, and country-wide specialist workshop facilities. By the end of the '50s, their market-share in Sweden was between 40 to 50%, and was achieving 70% in the heaviest truck sector - helped by the entrepreneurial efforts of their dealers into the haulier market.

Probably their largest impact was in export markets. Before 1950, exports accounted for only 10 percent of production output, but a decade later, exports were now at 50% of output. Beers in the Netherlands became a very important partner. Beers became official importers for Scania-Vabis in the Netherlands, and established a dealer network, along with training programmes for both mechanics and drivers. Beers also offered free twice-yearly overhauls of their customers vehicles, and offered a mobile service throughout the Netherlands with their custom-equipped service trucks. Due to Beers concerted efforts, Scania-Vabis market share in the country remained at a consistent 20% throughout this period. Scania-Vabis were to adopt the business model of Beers in their own overseas sales operations.

The 1960s saw Scania-Vabis expanding its production operations into overseas locations. Until now, all Scania-Vabis production had been carried out solely at Södertälje
Södertälje
Södertälje is a city and the seat of Södertälje Municipality, Stockholm County, Sweden with 86,069 inhabitants in 2010.The industrial city, about south of Stockholm, is the home to truck maker Scania AB and a top 10 pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca....

, but the '60s saw the need to expand production overseas. Brazil was becoming a notable market for heavy trucks, and was also dependent on inter-urban buses, with particular requirement for Brazils mountainous roads which became nigh-on impassable at times. Scania-Vabis established its first production plant outside Södertälje, by building a new facility at São Bernardo do Campo

. Be-Ge had been making truck cabs since 1946, and had been supplying cabs not only to Scania-Vabis, but also to their Swedish competitors Volvo. If was normal practice for truck manufacturers to outsource production of cabs to independent bodybuilders, so their acquisition by Scania-Vabis seemed a good move. Be-Ge owner Bror Göthe Persson had also established an additional cab factory at Meppel

There are different axle configurations and a choice of chassis height and suspension. The Scania R730, the most powerful variant of the R-series, currently holds the record for the most powerful production truck. Its 16.4 Liter DC16 Turbo Diesel V8 engine produces 730 PS at 1,900 rpm and 3500 newton metre of torque at 1,000 - 1,350 rpm.

The R series also came as a limited edition '+' the most common being the R420+ with 100 being sold across Europe. This came with a newer opti-cruise gearbox with a trial gear ratio. It also came with an added microwave from the dealer. It's believed the sales were mainly in Sweden, but as many as 10 per country elsewhere.
