Italian industrial vehicle manufacturing company IVECO took part this week in the inauguration of G7allery, an exhibition devoted to innovation that presents the best projects on sustainability applied to the world of infrastructure and transport. The G7 Transport’s opening event was promoted by the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport with the call for practice “Nice to meet you G7”, which has collected over 400 best practices, seven of which were exhibited during the event.
IVECO presented its vision of the future of transport together with representatives from the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport and major institutional and private stakeholders. The presence at the event of a Stralis NP powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG) showcased Iveco’s commitment to the development of alternative fuels and transport technologies to optimize fuel consumption. Stralis NP is designed for long-distance haulage and offers up to 1,500 km of autonomy. It can reduce NOx emissions by 32%, PM by 99% and CO2 by up to 95% when using biomethane.
Michele Ziosi, Head of Institutional Relations EMEA and APAC at CNH Industrial, explained IVECO’s standpoint in the presence of the participating institutions of: “The future of the world of transport lies in the development of natural gas. IVECO has always been the forerunner in methane technology and has been the European leader of alternative traction vehicles for decades. The development of new sustainable solutions, such as those for autonomous driving and platooning, are further pillars of future transport sustainability.”
IVECO is the only manufacturer that offers a full range of natural gas models, from light commercial vehicles to heavy-duty long-haul trucks, as well as buses. It promotes as a solution to most of the issues we face today: local air quality with its extra-low NOx and PM emissions, and reduced noise.
