IVECO New Stralis NP runs 837 miles on just one tank of LNG

An IVECO New Stralis NP has completed the famous 837-mile journey from John O’Groats to Land’s End on a single fill of liquified natural gas (LNG), demonstrating its viability as a genuine alternative to diesel vehicles. The New Stralis NP offers major benefits including ultra-low emissions, quieter operation and fuel costs which are around a third lower than diesel.

IVECO selected the route as the ultimate demonstration of range and versatility, with the New Stralis NP operating with a laden tri-axle trailer for the first 808 miles, only dropping the trailer at a truckstop in Redruth as the Land’s End Visitor Centre cannot accommodate 13.6m trailers.

Thanks to a proven Natural Power technology, heavy truck fleets can take advantage of a simplified after-treatment system, meaning there’s no need for EGR, SCR, AdBlue or particulate filters. Plus, the reduced cost of natural gas versus diesel translates into a lower total cost of ownership, whilst the driving experience is now on a par with the latest generation diesel-powered trucks.

The New Stralis NP was powered by an 8.7-litre IVECO Cursor 9 Natural Gas engine which delivers the same output of 400 hp and 1,700 Nm torque as its diesel equivalent, resulting in an excellent power-to-weight ratio, power density and quietness of operation.
