Having already taken delivery of the first batch of 216 IVECO SWAY CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) tractors to be operated by its partners in the UK and Europe another 848 units have been ordered with deliveries to be started in the middle of 2022 (for a total order of 1,064 trucks).

These 1,064 trucks are powered by the state-of-the-art FPT Industrial Cursor 13 Natural Gas engines and equipped with 1,052-litre CNG tanks, the largest available, with the expectation that they will yield a range of 620km (385 miles) between refuelling.

The 848 units on order for delivery in 2022 will also feature IVECO Driver Pal, the Brand’s on-board vocal driver companion with Amazon Alexa features.

Gerrit Marx, designated Chief Executive Officer of Iveco Group, said: “We have been pioneering gas propulsion technology for 25 years, developing solutions that allow operators to make significant reductions in emissions right now.

“Collaboration with global leaders like Amazon is a testament to the robust capability of our innovative products and our unyielding commitment to the industry objective of decarbonizing transport by 2050.

“Iveco Group will continue leading the way in combustion engines running on renewable fuels, the only viable solution already available at scale on the market to reduce emissions.

“Let’s not forget that a CNG truck powered by bio-methane can cut CO2 emissions by up to 95% from a well-to-wheel CO2 measuring approach, effectively contributing to the decarbonisation process.”
