The 65th running of the International Motor Show of Commercial Vehicles (IAA) will take place in Hanover, from 25 September to 2 October 2014, and will include several major manufacturers worldwide such as Iveco. This company will be introducing a number of innovations on a stand covering more than 2,500 square meters, and will showcase a complete display of its range of alternative fuel vehicles, including the New Daily CNG and the Stralis LNG.
The New Daily CNG has the same strongpoints as the diesel version in terms of reliability, comfort, and useful payload. Its dual beam chassis makes not just the preferred base vehicle for bodybuilders, providing them with robustness and the ability to support heavy loads, but much more: as a result of the way in which the cylinders are mounted on the Natural Power version, there is no loss of useful cargo space or to the area dedicated to mounting the body.
The Stralis Natural Power Euro VI powered by liquefied natural gas will feature a new tank fully complying with the revised Regulation UNECE No.110, in force since 10 June 2014, permitting type-approval for LNG vehicles which previously was not possible. This is an important new step for the sector, one that indicates a strong expansion of the market for LNG-powered heavy vehicles for medium-haul routes.
In total, there will be 16 vehicles on display: seven New Daily vehicles including one New Daily Minibus, one New Daily CNG, and one fitted out as a mobile workshop. A Eurocargo (18 ton) will represent the medium range vehicles; four Stralis trucks for the heavy range including one LNG and one Super-Light, a special version of Stralis which uses specific technical solutions aimed at reducing weight.
