Natural gas has been the first step towards sustainable road transport. Its considerable reduction in emissions, efficiency and a very competitive cost compared to diesel make this fuel the best option for any type of mission. The IVECO S-WAY NP is proof of this as it is the only LNG heavy industrial vehicle, with a range of up to 1,600 km and 460 HP, perfect for long-distance freight transport and combining sustainability and efficiency.
The new IVECO S-WAY NP is based on the excellent sustainable performance of the heavy range with a greater reduction in emissions, whose IVECO Cursor Natural Power engine emits 90% less NO2, 95% less suspended particles and 95% less CO2 with the use of biomethane (well-to-wheel). This is accomplished with the unique EGR- and SCR-free three-way catalyst-based after-treatment system, and thanks to outstanding fuel efficiency resulting from modern engine and Hi-Tronix technology.
The role of natural gas in road transport is increasingly important. This is demonstrated by the new Moves II Aid Plan, designed by the Spanish Ministry for the Ecological Transition. This regulates the incentive program for efficient and sustainable mobility that, among other actions, includes the acquisition of alternative fuel vehicles (light, medium and heavy industrial vehicles) with aid of up to 13,500 euros in the case of trucks depending of its tonnage.
With more than 288 LNG filling stations in Europe and more than 60 in Spain and Portugal, the refueling process and time for natural gas vehicles is the same as in a conventional vehicle and takes two or three minutes. In addition, the cost per kilometer of vehicles powered by this fuel is 30% less than diesel.
