IVECO, the commercial vehicles brand of CNH Industrial N.V., has secured the largest deal for its Stralis NP vehicles to date.
The agreement signed with Jost Group, foresees the delivery of a fleet of 500 Stralis NP trucks running on LNG. LNG is widely regarded as the only currently available mass market alternative to diesel.
The Stralis NP (Natural Power) is designed to be the most sustainable long-distance heavy truck ever manufactured. These trucks powered by LNG will offer an excellent power-to-weight ratio, power density and quietness of operation. The first 150 vehicles will enter into operation during 2018, with the full fleet to be in service by 2020.
Amongst the early adopters of this new technology, Jost Group continues its move towards green logistics and sustainable transport, something customers are increasingly demanding. The group's goal is to have 35% of its fleet running on LNG and is supporting this with an investment in its own LNG refueling infrastructure, with plans to open up to three filling stations within its major operating centers in Belgium.
This order will replace pre-Euro VI diesel-powered vehicles, aged four to five years, in the Belgian firm's fleet of 1400 trucks and 3000 trailers. Presently, Jost Group conducts operations with 132 IVECO Stralis vehicles, including two running on CNG.
