Meet the Characters fromthe Vroom-Town Series of Children’s Books.

Vabis the Scania Truck
Vabis is a wonderful Scania truck. He has lots of cool technology and is very clever. He is also very popular because he is caring and friendly. Vabis got his name from the origins of Scania, the global truck and bus manufacturer. It used to be called Scania-Vabis, but the Vabis name was dropped in 1968. I thought it would be a nice 'nod' to the history of  Scania! Vabis is now excited to spend time with his friends in Vroom-Town.
