The article reports that the announcement of a £500 Vehicle Excise Duty rebate on Euro 5 tractors has had no affect on demand for Scania's Euro 5 SCR engine. According to technical manager Clive Burnett, since January 2004 just four Euro 5 R420 have been ordered, and no order of R380 or R500. Scania's Euro 5 EGR trucks will be marketed over a two year period, starting later in 2007 with the 400-500 horsepower engines and finishing with the V8 in time for the October 2009 deadline.
