IVECO » New Stralis
In July 2016, IVECO presented a new generation of Stralis with a highway version Stralis XP. The New Stralis XP builds on the solid foundation of the Stralis Hi-Way, launched in 2012 and crowned “International Truck of the Year 2013”. It carries over the best of its predecessor, and in particular the Hi-Way cab, which is very well appreciated by customers, Iveco’s unique HI-SCR Euro VI solution that requires no regeneration and preserves the long-term value of engine and vehicle, and the excellent quality and reliability of the previous range.
The completely renewed driveline, the new electric and electronic systems, new best-in-class transmission, rear axle and a rear suspension, the re-engineered engine, the proven HI-SCR technology, and the latest-generation GPS predictive functions, are perfectly integrated with a host of new and innovative fuel saving features and a unique range of services designed by Iveco to maximise reliability and reduce CO2 and TCO. All the improvements and new features generate fuel savings of up to 11%, while the new services add further savings of up to 3%. Altogether, product features and services on the Stralis XP work together to reduce TCO in long-haul missions by an impressive 5.6%.
The New Stralis 480XP and 570XP, designed for extra-long haul missions, feature the innovative Smart EGR, which works in combination with Iveco’s patented HI-SCR after-treatment system to optmise combustion, resulting in significant fuel savings on long distances. This solution harnesses a small amount of exhaust re-circulation – just 8% - to allow an earlier start of injection.
IVECO also introduced a Stralis NP: a revolutionary gas truck for sustainable long-haul transport. The New Stralis NP is the first natural gas truck specifically designed for long-haul operations. It is the only truck that can run on Compressed or Liquid Natural Gas, or a blend of the two, to deliver the power rating, comfort, transmission technology and fuel autonomy to suit long-distance haulage missions.
The New Stralis NP features a new engine that delivers 400 hp and 1,700 Nm torque, equal to its diesel equivalent and 17% more its best competitor. The 12-speed automated gearbox dramatically increases durability, reduces costs and improves driving comfort. The Hi-Way cab provides a functional environment with all the comforts needed for a long-haul mission. With a range autonomy of up to a maximum 1500 kilometres, the New Stralis NP breaks new ground, making natural gas a viable solution for all missions all the way up to international long haulage. The clean fuel it runs on means it can access urban centres with increasingly stringent restrictions on noise and emissions.
