IVECO, a brand of CNH Industrial, has won in two categories at the “Sustainable Truck of the Year” awards.
The award series was inaugurated this year in response to the growing awareness of sustainability in the transport sector. It celebrates the most eco-friendly goods transport vehicles presented in 2016 that are currently available on the market in the “Tractor”, “Distribution” and “Van” categories. IVECO was the only brand with a product nominated in each category, the Stralis NP (Natural Power) in the Tractor category, the Eurocargo CNG for Distribution and the Daily Electric in the Van category, confirming the brand’s ability to offer sustainable transport solutions for every commercial vehicle product segment.
The IVECO Eurocargo CNG, which runs on compressed natural gas, was named “Sustainable Truck of the Year” in the “Distribution” category. This particular model is equipped with an IVECO Tector 6 natural gas engine with 210 horsepower that is engineered by FPT Industrial, the powertrain brand of CNH Industrial. The engine offers significant advantages in terms of emissions as well as efficiency and easy maintenance. It respects Euro VI standards, thus allowing it access to low emissions zones in city centers and is silent, rendering the vehicle ideal for night time urban missions.
The IVECO Daily Electric also took home a “Sustainable Truck of the Year” award in the “Van” category thanks to a number of factors including its use of high efficiency auxiliary electric systems, low gross vehicle weight, reduced energy consumption, 20% higher battery life on a 100% recyclable battery and an increased payload of some 100 kilograms. Through its patented flexible charging mode, the battery can be charged in both public and private settings by connecting to a rapid charging station for an average time of only two hours.
