Guest Truck and Van has become the first dealership in the UK to be able to offer customers the chance to test drive the Iveco Stralis NP (Natural Power) LNG 460PS 6x2 tractor unit.
The vehicle was launched earlier this year in the UK and has only recently gone into production.
Iveco says the 6x2 model will be the first to bring natural powered trucks into mainstream operation.
Robert Spittle, MD of Guest Truck and Van, said: “Being the first dealership in the country to take delivery of Stralis NP is a tremendous coup for Guest Truck and Van.
“Where operators of 4x2 tractor units have been trialing gas powered trucks previously, Iveco has now introduced a real contender to change the landscape of 6x2 fleets.
“It’s testament to our expertise in the sector that we have been selected to offer it to our customers. It’s exciting for us and it is fantastic news for our customers.”
The Iveco Stralis NP LNG 460BHP 6x2 tractor unit has a range of up to 466 miles and is available with the latest-generation Hi-Tronix automated transmission.
The Stralis NP features Iveco’s best on-road fuel efficiency technologies and services to deliver up to 15% less fuel consumption and up to 9% lower total cost of ownership than a diesel truck.
Compared to Euro VI limits, it delivers up to a 99% reduction in particulate matter and up to a 60% drop in NOx.
