Stralis Hi-Way and HI-eSCR Euro VI saves fuel

TÜV, one of the leading independent European technical certification centres, has found that the Iveco Stralis Hi-Way Euro VI enables a reduction in fuel consumption of 2.33 per cent compared to the previous generation Euro V model. Key to achieving the savings was the innovative catalytic reduction system (HI-eSCR) and the enhanced aerodynamics introduced with the new Hi-Way cab.

The result translates into real savings for the customer and confirms the latest Iveco Stralis as a product with high added value, featuring the most advanced technologies and making it a great solution for the transport industry.

Thanks to the extreme efficiency of both the engine and the HI-eSCR system, developed, patented and produced by FPT Industrial, the new Stralis range meets the limits demanded by the new Euro VI legislation without using EGR. This enables it to offer multiple advantages to Iveco customers including weight reduction, lower fuel consumption and increased durability.

The tests carried out compared a new Stralis Hi-Way tractor unit equipped with a 460 hp Euro VI Cursor 11 engine with a similar Stralis vehicle from the previous generation, equipped with a 460 hp Euro V Cursor 10 engine. Both models were in EcoStralis configuration.

“Today’s achievement,” said Lorenzo Sistino, Iveco Brand President, “is another important demonstration of the continued work by Iveco to reduce fuel consumption. This commitment has already allowed the EcoStralis Euro V model to obtain TÜV certification with a reduction in fuel consumption of 7.32 per cent compared to a standard Stralis from the same generation.”
