To celebrate IVECO’s continued investment in natural gas power, it has expanded its available fuel tank options on its IVECO S-WAY CNG 4×2 tractors, increasing the total fuel capacity to 1,052-litres, up by 132L. The CNG fuel tanks consist of four cylinders arranged in to a ‘pack’, with one pack sitting on either side of the truck’s chassis. Maximizing available space, half of the total cylinders on each side remain at 115L, while the balance have been increased to 148L.
This additional tank size enables 160kg of CNG to be squeezed into the tanks, which equates to an impressive 15% proportional uplift in vehicle range. Available to order now, the enlarged fuel tanks require a minimum 5th wheel height of 190mm.
“Natural gas, as the gateway to zero emission transport, is becoming harder to ignore. With the larger CNG tanks and a refueling network that is undergoing nationwide growth at a considerable rate, IVECO S-WAY CNG offers operators an environmental solution that must not be ignored,” said IVECO UK’s Medium/Heavy Product Manager & Alternative Fuels Lead, Jorge Asensio López.
Launched in RHD in November 2020, the IVECO S-WAY is IVECO’s latest and most advanced heavy truck to date, offering exceptional fuel economy through advances in aerodynamic design and high levels of connectivity with IVECO ON. The IVECO S-WAY natural gas is available as a tractor or rigid with four Natural Power CURSOR engines capable of running on CNG, LNG or both.
