FPT Industrial powers the “Sustainable Truck of the Year 2021” in the Tractor category, the IVECO S-WAY NP 460 in the LNG version. The winning truck is equipped with the latest generation of FPT Industrial’s Cursor 13 Natural Gas: the most powerful, 100% natural gas engine for commercial vehicles on the market.
This 6-cylinder engine ensures the IVECO S-WAY NP 460 a maximum power of 338 kW/460 Hp at 1,900 rpm and torque of 2,000 Nm at 1,100 rpm and diesel-like performance. The engine design not only provides reliability and a longer product lifecycle, but it’s also the only natural gas engine with 1,600-km autonomy and the new reference in consumption with 4.12 km per kg of gas.
Natural Gas (NG) is currently the most viable and low-cost sustainable solution, with FPT Industrial leading this segment with more than 55,000 engines sold worldwide. The Brand’s NG engines significantly reduce CO2 emissions whether with the compressed or the liquefied form of Natural Gas. They can also run on biomethane, bringing emissions down to almost zero.
Cursor 13 NG uses stoichiometric combustion and multipoint sequential injection, ensuring best-in-class fuel consumption and lower noise than Diesel. It can run on 100% CNG, LNG, or biomethane and delivers fuel cost savings vs. Diesel of up to 30-35%. To comply with emissions standards Euro VI Step D, this model relies on a simple three-way catalyst, without Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR). The Cursor 13 NG is the best alternative with low climate impact for long haul operations since it has been developed to meet high demands on performance and low operating costs without compromises durability.
The Sustainable Truck of the Year award, now in its fifth edition, was created by Italian specialized 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.
