Sisu » Polar

Earlier, the powerful Finnish manufacturer of trucks and special equipment Sisu, after several changes of owners, now again an independent manufacture. Since August 2010 the Sisu Auto company have started to source the main components from Daimler Concern. The cabin of a new family is taken from the Mercedes-Benz Actros, but got a new design of the grille and bumper. It can be in a short day cab version or with a sleeper, including the cabins with a high roof. The wheel configurations are 6x4, 8x4 and even 10x4. There are 3 engines to choose, and of them by Mercedes-Benz: Mercedes-Benz OM501LA, V6 at 480 hp and 2,300 Nm, Mercedes-Benz OM502LA, V8, at 550 hp and 2600 Nm and Mercedes-Benz OM502LA, V8, at 600 hp and 2,800 Nm. There are also 3 types of transmissions: automatic Mercedes PowerShift G280-16 and Eaton Fuller RTLO 20,918, and manual Mercedes Telligent G240-16.

    Greetings from Finland!
    Just to correct the wrong information related to the ownership of Sisu Auto, manufacturer of Sisu trucks and military vehicles; Sisu was established in 1931, first 40 years being a private owned family company, from 1975 (after the death of Tor Nessling, owner and leader of the company) to 1997 owned by Finnish State, then purchased from the state by a large, Finnish industria group, Partek Oy, then in 2002 by another one, Kone Oy, then 2004 Kone sold it to group of private investors and finally, in August this year, undersigned (in relation to Sisu over 20 years, in the management of product development and production) and Olof Elenius, Managing director of the Sisu Group, bought the Sisu Group from the investor group, so finally, the Sisu is again a "family company". So not at all owned by Daimler AG, nor any other one! But, indeed, we have started to source the main components (engine, cabin, some transmissions and other parts) from Daimler, instead of RVI, which was the supplier to us since 1997.
    So, Sisu is today really an independent manufacturer of vehicles, developing and producing special vehicles according to the customer needs and just for information: Not for sale!
    But customers intersted in high quality vehicles, efficiently tailored for special purposes, do not hesitate to contact for more information!
