Iveco Stralis Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) has received the ‘Europäischen Transportpreis für Nachhaltigkeit’, a European transport award for sustainability.
The award encourages companies from the transport and commercial vehicle sectors to work in a sustainable manner and to help advance sustainable development methods. The award recognises that responsible and sustainable actions are essential to address global environmental problems, as well as being able to increase profitability and competitiveness for companies.
Using LNG as fuel, the Stralis vehicles are clean, quiet and remain below Euro VI levels. Being clean and quiet, the vehicles are well suited for inner city uses such as shop deliveries, but with a range of 750 km, they can also be used for long distance journeys. The combined use of LNG fuel, low consumption and low fuel price make the vehicles economically advantageous.
In addition to its environmental compatibility, each kilogram of natural gas used for fuel in Stralis vehicles substitutes an equivalent amount of mineral oil, which tends to reduce pricing pressures.
