Iveco’s latest generation Eurocargo Natural Power is now available to order in right-hand drive, giving UK and Irish fleets access to a medium truck running on compressed natural gas (CNG).
The Eurocargo Natural Power is available as a 12-tonne and 16-tonne 4x2 rigid, with a choice of multiple wheelbases from 3,105 mm to 5,670 mm.
Both models are powered by a six-litre Iveco Tector engine capable of delivering 204 hp and 750 Nm of torque, with a maximum range of up to 400 km.
Compared with diesel, CNG emits 35% fewer NOx emissions and 95% less particulate matter.
The Eurocargo Natural Power is compliant with Euro VI step C emission requirements and can access restricted traffic zones in city centres.
Iveco says it is also perfect for night-time operations as the engine is up to 50% quieter than diesel, making it virtually silent. CNG tanks are mounted along the sides of the chassis, to avoid any reduction in load space and to ensure maximum bodybuilder flexibility is maintained.
Martin Flach, Iveco’s alternative fuels director, said: “We can now deliver Daily, Eurocargo and Stralis Natural Power models in right-hand drive, giving UK and Irish fleets the opportunity to significantly improve the sustainability of their operations.”
In addition to standard 12-tonne and 16-tonne models, Eurocargo Natural Power can also be specified with Iveco’s specialist ‘EL’ low-height chassis, which is specifically designed for multi-drop urban distribution.
Built on the regular Eurocargo production line, the 120EL21/P sits 75mm lower than the standard model to significantly ease access to the cab and body.
