The IVECO S-Way CNG trucks are equipped with Cursor engines from FPT Industrial – the Iveco Group brand specialised in low-environmental impact powertrains – that can be powered by bio-CNG. Bio-CNG is a sustainable renewable fuel derived from waste and residual materials; its use can reduce CO2 emissions by up to 95% compared to a diesel engine and, if the gas is sourced from manure, could even achieve a negative carbon footprint of up to -120%.

“Compressed Natural Gas technology is currently the most mature solution on the market for reducing emissions and our IVECO S-Way CNG ensures extremely efficient performance, while maximising the benefits of the most eco-friendly fuels available today.” Commented Luca Sra, President, Truck Business Unit, Iveco Group. “We are proud to partner with DHL in their efforts to reduce their environmental impact and contribute to a more sustainable future.”
