September 14, 2020. Iveco, a brand belonging to the CNH Industrial group, made the largest sale of trucks with alternative fuel in South America. With more than 20 years developing and using cleaner and more environmentally friendly energies to power commercial vehicles, the brand and the Chilean transport company San Gabriel signed a sale agreement for 35 Stralis NP Cursor 13 units powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG) 4×2 Euro VI.
San Gabriel has a long history in the Chilean market and is recognized for its large fleet of trucks and trailers. It currently serves renowned companies such as the beer maker AB InBev, the natural origin food company Iansa and Ideal, the firm dedicated to the production of food, among others.
From San Gabriel they assure that the acquisition of their new fleet will be a differential for their customers and they highlight Iveco’s trajectory both for the autonomy and comfort of its vehicles, as well as for the sustainable technology that the new trucks will offer for business.
The client will have a station to load fuel in Linares, 300 km from Santiago and will travel up to 1,500 km with a single refill, circulating through various routes to the south of Chile.
The new trucks that will travel the Chilean routes guarantee better air quality with 60% reduction of NOx, 99% reduction of particles and 95% less CO2 thanks to the use of bioLNG. In addition, they offer a quieter environment with 71 dB lower Piek level. These vehicles have two tanks of 540 liters each and offer a range of up to 1,600 kilometers depending on the mission of the carrier, making it the option of choice for long-distance journeys.
