Scania New Zealand has achieved the number one position in market share for heavy trucks (over 16,000kg GVM), buses and engines in 2020.

This is the first time Scania New Zealand has secured this leading market position. Managing director Mattias Lundholm is incredibly proud to achieve this after only two years of establishing an official Scania team presence in New Zealand.

“We want to thank and acknowledge all our Scania customers who made 2020 such a successful year for us. Capping off the year first in market share for heavy trucks, buses and engines is a fantastic result.

“We are incredibly grateful for every customer that chooses Scania, as well as for the consistently hard work our team constantly puts in from Scania NZ and South Pacific Diesel Systems Limited.”

Lundholm also highlighted other achievements for 2020 being the launching of Scania Finance New Zealand and the opening of eight Scania New Zealand workshops around the country.

“We significantly expanded our Scania footprint throughout New Zealand last year. Scania now enjoys a stable of nation-wide workshops and a team of more than 165 staff. It‘s been a phenomenal performance to get to where we are within such a short time frame, but now as the saying goes, the hard work really begins to maintain and improve our position for our team and customers into 2021 and beyond,” says Lundholm.
