FPT Industrial powers ‘Sustainable Bus of the Year 2020’

A CNH Industrial subsidiary, FPT Industrial has powered the ‘Sustainable Bus of the Year 2020’ in the intercity category, the Iveco Bus Crossway Natural Power. The winning coach is fitted with the latest generation of FPT’s Cursor 9 Natural Gas.

This 6-cylinder engine ensures the Crossway NP a maximum power of 360 hp at 2,000 rpm and torque of 1,640 Nm at 1,100 rpm. The engine design not only provides reliability and a longer product lifecycle, but also the same accessibility, passenger capacity and luggage space as the Diesel version.

FPT Industrial Cursor 9 Natural Gas
Natural Gas (NG) is currently the most viable and low-cost sustainable solution, with FPT Industrial leading this segment with some 50,000 engines sold worldwide. The Brand’s NG engines significantly reduce CO2 emissions whether with the compressed or the liquefied form of Natural Gas. They can also run on biomethane, bringing emissions down to almost zero.

Cursor 9 NG uses stoichiometric combustion and multipoint sequential injection, ensuring best-in-class fuel consumption. To comply with emissions standards Euro VI, this model relies on a simple three-way catalyst, withou Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR).

The Sustainable Bus Award evaluates a series of sustainability principals, such as comfort, noise levels, safety, and the general sustainability commitment of the manufacturer. The jury is composed of representatives from leading European bus trade magazines.
