Iveco receives most sustainable truck award
The natural gas-powered Cursor 13 engine

 

The LNG-powered Iveco S-Way NP 460 has been voted the Sustainable Truck of the Year 2021, parent group FPT Industrial reports.

The Sustainable Truck of the Year award, now in its fifth edition, was created by Italian specialised magazine Vado e Torno. The winners are selected by a jury panel of professional journalists based on the Sustainability Index introduced by Vado e Torno.

FPT says the winning Iveco is equipped with the latest generation of FPT Industrial´s Cursor 13 natural gas (NG) engine, which it claims is the most powerful, 100 per cent natural gas engine for commercial vehicles on the market.

According to FPT, the six-cylinder engine ensures the Iveco S-Way NP 460 reaches a maximum power of 338kW/460hp at 1,900rpm and torque of 2,000Nm at 1,100rpm and diesel-like performance.

Furthermore, FPT says the engine design not only provides reliability and a longer product lifecycle, but it’s also the only natural gas engine with 1,600km autonomy and the new reference in consumption with 4.12km per kg of gas.

FPT Industrial actively promotes NG as the most viable and low-cost sustainable solution. The organisation says it has sold more than 55,000 engines in this segment worldwide.

The brand´s NG engines are reported to significantly reduce CO2 emissions whether with the compressed or the liquefied form of natural gas. They can also run on biomethane, which is claimed to bring emissions down to almost zero.

The Cursor 13 NG engine uses stoichiometric combustion and multipoint sequential injection, which FPT says ensures best-in-class fuel consumption and lower noise than diesel. It can run on 100 per cent CNG, LNG or biomethane and claims to deliver fuel cost savings over diesel of up to 30 to 35 per cent.
