It’s official. The IVECO Stralis NP 460 is the top-ranking truck in the market.
Recent tests carried out by European trade publications have confirmed that as far as natural gas energy is concerned, the Stralis NP is strides ahead of the competition.
There are more than 3,000 Stralis NP in over 400 logistics operators on Europe’s major transport routes. And the trucks are proving that IVECO’s Natural Power Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) technology is a viable solution to sustainable road freight.
The Stralis NP 460’s single-fuel, double LNG tank technology delivers the kind of performance you would expect from a diesel truck, but with significantly reduced fuel consumption (up to 15% less).
Operators looking to convert fleets to natural gas have the support of a rapidly growing LNG distribution network supported by European Commission and government initiatives designed to increase the uptake of natural gas and biomethane in transport. The network currently covers more than 150 refuelling stations across Europe’s main routes – by the end of the year that number is expected to be in excess of 300.
So, is this the way forward for trucking? How many more companies will join the likes of Perrenot, Vega Trans, DHL Freight and FERCAM and convert to natural gas?
