UK dealer gets first Iveco LNG demonstrator

Guest Truck and Van is the first dealership in the UK to offer customer test drives in a natural gas powered Iveco tractor unit.

The dealer has taken delivery of the Iveco Stralis NP (Natural Power) LNG 460BHP 6×2 Tractor Unit, which was launched last year in the UK.

By far the largest sector of commercial vehicles in the UK, the 6×2 model will be the first to bring natural powered trucks into mainstream operation.

Robert Spittle, MD of Guest Truck and Van, said anyone within its network of dealerships, which stretches from Sheffield in the north to Cambridge in the south and across to Thetford in the east, can book a test drive.

“Being the first dealership in the country to take delivery of Stralis NP is a tremendous coup for Guest Truck and Van,” he said. “Where operators of 4×2 Tractor Units have been trialing gas powered trucks previously, IVECO has now introduced a real contender to change the landscape of 6×2 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.”
