Home / SBS Transit, Singapore (before GCM/BCM) / Scania K310UD (Gemilang) [27]

While Scania K-series single decker buses are plenty in SBS Transit, the company operates only a single double deck demonstrator, SBS7888K. The K310UD demonstrator was delivered to the operator in March 2010 and was the first bodywork developed by Gemilang for a double deck city bus using Alcan's EcoRange aluminum-based technology.

The unit was powered by the Scania DC9 18 310 Euro IV engine (8,867cc), and fitted with 6-speed ZF Ecomat 6HP604CN automatic transmission. Its Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) technology does away the need for additives in exhaust treatment. The EDS unit was from Hanover Displays, air-conditioning from Eberspächer Sütrak of the R488 type and its interior design similar to its single deck counterparts.

In 2011, SBS7888K was briefly showcased with a special livery at Bangkok to celebrate Scania's 100th anniversary. It returned to Singapore for continued service after the event.
