The Scania L113 was a bus chassis built by Scania in Sweden between 1989 and 1998.

Design

Sydney Buses Ansair bodied L113CRL in Coogee in January 2009
Arriva North East East Lancs European bodied L113 in Newcastle in May 2009

The L113 was largely a cross between the N113 and K113, with the front section of its chassis of a similar height to that of the N113, and an 11-litre engine that was mounted longitudinally as per the K113. However, it differed from both models by having this engine inclined to the side.[1]

Sales

In Scandinavia, the L113 was sold mainly as an inter-urban bus, with bodywork by a range of manufacturers including Carrus and Ajokki of Finland and DAB of Denmark. It was also sold as a city bus in South America.[1]

Australia

Sydney Buses purchased 102 step deck L113CRB, 156 low floor L113CRL and 50 14.5 metre L113TRBs bodied by Ansair between January 1993 and April 1998.[2]

Singapore

A total of 77 L113s were supplied to SingaporeTrans-Island Bus Services taking 50 with Alexander Strider bodies and 15 with Greek built ELBO bodies between 1995 and 1997, and Singapore Bus Service taking 12 with Soon Chow bodies in 1995.

United Kingdom

The L113 was introduced to the UK in 1994, and between then and the end of production a total of 511 were supplied.

Early examples had step-entrance Northern Counties Paladin and Alexander Strider bodies, while East Lancs offered the European and later the Flyte.

However, the L113 sold best with a low-floor Wright body marketed jointly as the Axcess-Ultralow. 330 such vehicles were built, the majority of which were for FirstGroup.

Replacement

In 1997, Scania introduced its 4-series range of buses, which utilised smaller and cleaner engines in order to comply with Euro2 emission limits. The L113 was thus replaced by the 9-litre engined L94.
