IVECO Strengthens European Leadership in LNG trucks
Further demonstrating its ability to offer a full-range of alternative power solutions for the transport sector, IVECO, the commercial vehicles brand of CNH Industrial N.V., has unveiled the new Stralis NP 460 at its heavy trucks center of excellence in Ulm, Germany.
Classed as the most sustainable truck ever, the Stralis NP 460 delivers performance and productivity for all long-haul missions with the ability to achieve close to zero emissions on renewable LNG, cutting CO2 emissions by up to 95 percent when running on renewable compressed or liquefied natural gas.
IVECO says the Stralis NP 460 is fitted with the most powerful dedicated gas engine on the market, the IVECO Cursor 13 NP engineered by CNH Industrial’s powertrain brand FPT Industrial, which is protected by two patents. The new range maximizes the environmental advantages of natural gas.
The proprietary technology delivers a 99 percent reduction in Particulate Matter, a 60 percent reduction of Nitrogen Oxides and a volume level of less than 71 decibels, in comparison with the current Euro VI limits. In terms of autonomy, the truck’s double LNG tank version ensures a range of up to nearly 1,000 miles.
IVECO has pioneered natural gas transport for more than 20 years, making its commercial network among the most experienced in the industry. Some of Europe’s largest transport providers, including Jost Group with a 500-strong order and Jacky Perrenot Group with an order for 250 units, have put their trust in IVECO and the Stralis NP for their fleets.
