After the presentation of the new S-WAY heavy vehicle last July, the innovative model in natural gas version of IVECO won the ‘Eco-friendly Industrial Vehicle of the Year’ title during the 2020 National Transportation Awards, celebrated annually by the group Editec. In this fifth edition, the jury of the prize was made up of almost 50 transport companies and professionals from the alternative fuel field.
At the ceremony held on January 22 in Madrid and where more than 500 professionals of passenger and freight transport met, Ruggero Mughini, Director of the IVECO brand for Spain and Portugal, received the award from Isabel del Olmo, Director of the IDEA (Institute for Diversification and Energy Saving) Department of Transportation.
The new IVECO WAY heavy range represents a great shift towards an integrated, economically and environmentally sustainable transport solution. The IVECO S-WAY Natural Power brings together all the advances incorporated in previous generations and adds a new cabin completely redesigned according to the needs of the driver and owner.
It also remains the only LNG truck that offers a range of up to 1,600 km for long-distance missions with 460 hp. With this vehicle, fleets will benefit from all the advantages of natural gas, the only low-emission and immediate alternative to diesel fuel in the heavy vehicle segment.
