IVECO launched the new Stralis NP 460, the only full offer of natural gas heavy trucks specifically designed to cover a full range of missions, from regional to international haulage, from volume transportation to swap body applications, all the way to ADR and construction logistics.
The most sustainable truck ever has acquired even more
power and efficiency to deliver a true competitive advantage for transport operators aiming to meet the growing demand for ‘green’ logistics.
The new range introduces the
new IVECO Cursor 13 NP single-fuel engine developed to deliver the power required for the most demanding missions. Also new is the
12-speed Hi-Tronix automated transmission that further improves on the previous version’s excellent driving comfort and performance, as well as adding new functionalities such as the GPS-based
HI-CRUISE predictive driving. IVECO’s modular approach results in ample factory option offer and ultimate flexibility in tailored customisations. The vehicle can run on CNG, combined CNG and LNG, or LNG. The double LNG tank version ensures the
record range autonomy of up to 1,600 km. The new Stralis NP 460 features IVECO’s most advanced fuel-efficiency technologies and ultimate comfort of the Hi-Way cab designed for long-haul missions.
THE BEST TRUCK FOR THE PLANE
The Stralis NP 460 maximises the environmental advantages of natural gas, the most eco-friendly fuel for internal combustion engines and the mature solution for sustainable transport available today. Its proven technology delivers a 99% reduction of PM and 60% of NOx compared to Euro VI limits, helping to improve air quality on the roads and in urban areas. Its extremely quiet operation, measured at less than 71 dB on the Piek quiet truck test, adds to the unlimited sustainability of this vehicle. The Stralis NP 460 contributes to shrinking the carbon footprint of the transport industry by cutting CO2 emissions by up to 95% when running on compressed or liquefied bio-methane.
The use of bio-methane has the added benefit of reducing dependency from fossil fuels, as it can be generated from agricultural and urban waste, sewage, or waste from the food industry. It can be produced locally, dramatically reducing the need for transporting energy and the related CO2 emissions. In addition, its production process creates valuable by-products, such as bio-CO2 for refrigerated units and bio-fertilizer for agriculture.
