IVECO Australia , in conjunction with AGL is showcasing a diverse range of products at this year’s Melbourne International Truck, Trailer and Equipment Show.
A global trailblazer in alternative powertrain technology, IVECO will be showcasing its CNG technology in the form of a Daily commercial van as part of AGL’s new CNG initiative.
IVECO has a proven track record in technological innovation as demonstrated by its significant commitment to sustainability and transport efficiency. Globally, IVECO invests heavily in research and development, both on its extensive vehicle platforms and, in conjunction with major powertrain manufacturers, on the propulsion technology that drives IVECO further, for less.
According to Stavros Yallouridis, Head of IVECO brand for Australia and New Zealand, IVECO is renowned for being at the cutting edge of sustainability; as part of CNH Industrial, it has access to a global innovation network, as evidenced by the group’s prominence in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index.
IVECO is looking to complement its existing offerings in Australia and New Zealand by supporting AGL and build on their experience in this evolving market.
The CNG Daily commercial van is powered by a Fiat Powertrain (FPT) three litre natural gas engine, rated at 100 kW and 350 Nm of torque, between 1,500 and 2,700 rpm. When combined with AGL’s CNG, the Daily offers fleets a cleaner, low-carbon and more productive alternative.
Sourced locally, CNG can substantially reduce CO2 and other harmful emissions, while significantly reducing running costs.
