The firm claims that New Stralis’s new driveline – available in here variants – offers best in class reliability and efficiency, while also delivers leading low total cost of operation (TCO), and CO2 reduction – hence the name.
New Stralis XP – one of the international long-haul variants is claimed to deliver fuel savings of up to 11%, while Iveco’s new-generation up-time services add further savings of up to 3%, resulting in an estimated 5.6% reduction in TCO.
Meanwhile, New Stralis NP (natural power), which runs on CNG and LNG (compressed and liquefied natural gas), represents what Iveco describes as a breakthrough for gas trucks.
That is because its new engine delivers 400bhp and 1,700 Nm torque – equal to the diesel sweet spot – while the drivetrain continues with an automated transmission.
Together, these contribute to a 3% reduction in TCO, compared to the previous model, which already showed fuel pump savings up to 40% against diesel.
And the NP-CNG-LNG continues with the introduction not only of the latest new Euro 6 Step C compliant ML160 (16 tonne) version of Iveco’s mid-weight Eurocargo truck, now with full air suspension, but also a gas NP variant.
The New Eurocargo Natural Power takes a new 204bhp engine that delivers 750Nm of torque from 1,400—1,800 rpm – a full 100Nm more than its predecessor.
This too meets Euro 6 Step C emissions standards, due to come into force at the end of this year, and has been engineered to run on bio-methane derived from biomass or organic waste.
It is also 3dB quieter than the equivalent diesel Eurocargo, again as a result of its engine technologies – meaning it can be taken into restricted traffic zones, inclouding for night-time work.
Iveco says New Eurocargo NP has a range of 400km, and is designed formulti-drop urban distribution.
