Presenting a 100 per cent diesel free stand, Iveco displayed 18 vehicles showcasing its sustainable solutions that range from electric city buses to long-haul LNG trucks. Apart from a CNG/LNG filling station in association with Shell, the Italian CV major showcased a zeroemissions Daily Electric Minibus as part of the Daily Blue Power sustainable family that was crowned ‘International Van of the Year 2018’. The Daily Electric Minibus offers a perfect solution for last mile, stop-and-go city application. The Heuliez Bus GX ELEC fully electric city bus features the most advanced battery technology. The new generation Crealis In-Motion-Charging bus, at the other end, combines electric overhead lines with on-board battery energy storage that enables in-motion charging. For suburban public transport, Iveco displayed the CNG powered BUS Crossway Low Entry Natural Power. With the tanks integrated into the roof space, the bus offer a range of 600 km. The Daily Natural Power van displayed by Iveco is equipped with Hi-Matic eight-speed auto transmission mated to a 3.0-litre CNG engine.
Apart from a 7-tonne chassis cab equipped with Junge platform and curtainsider, Iveco showcased a chassis cab equipped by Fassi with a Maxicargo tipper trailer and crane for Ville de Paris. To commemorate the Daily’s anniversary, the Italian major displayed a van equipped with a Kerstner deep cooling fridge in the 40th Anniversary Limited Edition livery, and a van equipped for parcel deliveries by Spier with a personalisation designed by Garage Italia Custom. To highlight its preference for CNG, the company displayed two Eurocargo (for municipal applications) with a three-way tipper by Meiller, and a sweeper body developed by Johnston Engineering. Highlighting its association with Carrier Transicold, Iveco displayed a brand new 26-tonne 400 hp Stralis NP rigid equipped with a Frappa body and featuring Carrier Supra CNG technology. The reefer truck is 100 per cent natural gas powered. For longdistance missions, Iveco showcased a natural gas powered Stralis NP. The Stralis NP 460 the CV maker displayed, was elected Low Carbon Truck of the Year in the UK last year. A unique 400 hp Stralis X-Way Natural Power equipped with a CIFA electric concrete mixer grabbed attention. The truck runs on bio-CNG, and is equipped with the Energy hybrid plug-in concrete mixer developed by CIFA. The mixer is operated by an electric engine powered by a lithium battery, and features a Kinetic Energy Recovery System that recovers the truck’s energy when it is decelerating. The other Stralis NP Iveco displayed, was the 460 hp LNG truck for swap body missions; a 6x2 LNG tractor with 750 km range; a 4x2 LNG tractor with 1,600 km range, and a low tractor in LNG version with 1,150 km range.
