November 4, 2020. The Iveco S-Way NP 460 in liquefied natural gas (LNG) version was crowned Sustainable Truck of the Year 2021 in the Tractor category. The 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.
The Iveco S-Way NP integrates the best of Iveco’s industry-leading experience in natural gas traction with the high innovation content of the Iveco S-Way Range, developed to deliver a complete package of features and connectivity-enabled customized services focused on the driver, the fleet owner and on sustainability.
Maurizio Cervetto, Vado e Torno Deputy Editor, stated: “With the Iveco S-Way NP, Iveco is setting a new reference in productivity and efficiency for long-haul alternative traction vehicles. (…) The Iveco S-Way is not only the only natural gas vehicle with 1600-km autonomy; it is also the new reference in consumption with 4.12 km per kg of gas. The Iveco S-Way NP combines the technical performance, achieved with a well-proven powertrain (…) and an entirely new cab with a Cx improved by 12% that enables a significant fuel consumption reduction (up to 4%), with features and quality standards of a flagship vehicle that significantly raise the level of comfort for the driver and safety for the other road users. The new cab creates an environment that enables the full use of the space (2,1500 mm free height and a tunnel height reduced to just 95mm). It is even quieter than before, inside and out (according to Piek standards). In addition to the many driving assistance systems, it offers new connectivity services that increase further the sustainability of all types of transport.”
Thomas Hilse, Iveco Brand President, commented: “We are very proud of this important award, which supports our view of the vital role of natural gas in achieving a sustainable long-haul transport. It is the only solution that is immediately available. It is the starting point on the path to zero-emissions, and the Iveco S-Way proves that it is already a reality: with its performance, low Total Cost of Ownership, quiet operation and high autonomy, it provides a financially and environmentally sustainable solution.”
