The UK’s largest IVECO dealer group, Guest and Sherwood, will showcase three new ranges for the first time at the Commercial Vehicle Show.
Guest and Sherwood Truck and Van will be taking the IVECO Stralis NP (Natural Power) LNG 460BHP, the Real Driving Emissions (RDE) 2020 Ready IVECO Daily van, and the brand new IVECO Stralis X-Way, which features one of the lowest kerb weights in the industry.
The Stralis X-Way combines the robustness of an off-road vehicle, with the comfort and refinement of an on-road vehicle – allowing for multiple body types, including tipper, skip, tractor unit and mixer; which will be on display at the CV Show.
IVECO has incorporated its state-of-the-art HI-SCR technology throughout the X-Way’s entire engine range which runs from 310bhp to 570bhp. In addition to this, Tractor Units come with the option to include the all-new HI-TRACTION Hydrostatic Drive. This system is a much lighter alternative to conventional all-wheel drive, yet still provides exceptional traction across all terrains before and after the vehicle has been loaded and unloaded.
Guest and Sherwood will also be showing off the Stralis NP (Natural Power) LNG 460BHP 46×2 Tractor Unit for the first time to UK audiences. It has a range of up to 1,600km fully laden; making it IVECO’s long range alternative to diesel trucks, available with the latest-generation Hi-Tronix automated transmission, improving performance and productivity.
The Stralis NP features IVECO’s best on-road fuel efficiency technologies and services to deliver up to 15% less fuel consumption and up to 9% lower total cost of ownership than a diesel truck. Its solid eco credentials mean that compared to Euro VI limits, it delivers up to a 99% reduction in particulate matter and up to a 60% drop in NOx. It’s also extremely quiet, operating at less than 71dB in ‘Silent Mode’.
What’s also new at the CV Show this year is the RDE 2020 Ready IVECO Daily van. Part of IVECO’s Blue Power Range of vehicles, which includes Diesel (RDE Ready), Electric and Natural Gas (CNG – Compressed Natural Gas) fuelled vans, the RDE Daily is the first of its kind within the industry. RDE – or Real Driving Emissions – will be a ‘vehicle standard’ by 2020. It will work as a more stringent measurement of the emissions produced by a vehicle ‘on-road’, in addition to the standard laboratory homologation cycle that all vehicles currently undergo.
The RDE Ready IVECO Daily has been verified to not only meet, but exceed the target conformity of the RDE 2020 legislation three years ahead of time for both emissions and fuel consumption.
Finally, also on show will be the 7.2t IVECO Daily CNG, a natural gas alternative to the already versatile Daily van range. Powered by Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), the Daily in question is available in the same model lineup as its diesel counterpart, with no loss in power, torque or responsiveness, as well as coming standard with IVECO’s superb Hi-Matic 8-Speed automatic gearbox.
Nick Pemberton, of Guest and Sherwood Truck and Van, said: “The CV show is one of the biggest and best in the country, attracting circa 21,000 visitors, so it is the perfect time to introduce our newest ranges to the market. We’re extremely proud to offer these revolutionary IVECO vehicles and are looking forward to speaking to companies about how an investment in them could really make a difference.”
