DETROIT — Sweden's Saab-Scania AB plans to begin selling heavy trucks in the United States later this year, the company said Wednesday.
The trucks, which are manufactured by the company's Scania division in Sodertalje, Sweden, will be sold through an as-yet incomplete dealer network, the importer said in a statement released in Detroit.
Saab-Scania of America, based in Orange, Conn., imports Saab automobiles. The company also manufactures buses at a plant in Orange.
Saab-Scania plans to import only the heaviest weight category of diesel trucks, the statement said.
Initially, two cab-over-engine models and one cab-behind-engine model will be available, the statement said.
The company's main headquarters is in Linkoping, Sweden.
