FPT Industrial powers Sustainable Truck of the Year 2021

The Iveco S-Way NP 460 is the ‘Sustainable Truck of the Year 2021’, having won the award in the tractor category.

FPT Industrial powers the liquefied natural gas (LNG) version of the Iveco S-Way NP 460.

The winning truck is equipped with the latest generation of FPT Industrial’s Cursor 13 Natural Gas, which it says is the most powerful, 100 per cent natural gas engine for commercial vehicles on the market.

This 6-cylinder engine ensures the Iveco S-Way NP 460 a maximum power of 338 kW/460 Hp at 1,900 rpm and torque of 2,000 Nm at 1,100 rpm and diesel-like performance.

The engine design not only provides reliability and a longer product lifecycle, but it’s also the only natural gas engine with 1,600-km autonomy and the new reference in consumption with 4.12 km per kg of gas, according to FPT.

Natural gas (NG) is currently the most viable and low-cost sustainable solution, with FPT Industrial leading this segment with more than 55,000 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 13 NG uses stoichiometric combustion and multipoint sequential injection, ensuring best-in-class fuel consumption and lower noise than diesel. It can run on 100 per cent CNG, LNG or biomethane and delivers fuel cost savings vs. diesel of up to 30-35 per cent.

To comply with emissions standards Euro VI Step D, this model relies on a simple three-way catalyst, without exhaust gas recirculation (EGR). The Cursor 13 NG is the best alternative with low climate impact for long haul operations since it has been developed to meet high demands on performance and low operating costs without compromises durability.
