A first batch of 216 vehicles, all running on compressed natural gas, are already on delivery. The other 848 will be available from mid-2022. All will be equipped with tanks from 1,052 others and with Iveco Driver Pal, a voice assistance system that benefits from the functionality of Amazon Alexa. The Iveco CEO underlines: "This technology is the only one available on a large scale to reduce emissions"

A total of 1,064 S-WAY vehicles powered by natural gas that Iveco will deliver to Amazon in the coming months. This is a massive order, aimed at supporting the European activities of the global e-commerce giant, which the Italian brand of CNH Industrial will divide into several lots. The first, of 216 CNG vehicles - therefore with compressed natural gas - will be delivered immediately, while the other 848 will be put on the road starting from mid-2022 and will have 1,052-liter tanks among the equipment, so as to be able to guarantee 620 km of autonomy, both the Driver Pal, the on-board voice assistant introduced by Iveco in recent times and which represents a sort of bridge between the two realities, given that it is enriched with the functions of Amazon Alexa.

But obviously Gerrit Marx, Chief Executive Officer designated of Iveco Group, above all emphasizes the type of power supply of the vehicles purchased from Amazon, which - he points out - «is a testimony to the capabilities of our innovative products and our tenacious commitment to the goal of decarbonisation. of the transport sector by 2050 ". Also because - he added - the solution proposed by Iveco "is the only feasible and already available on a large scale on the market for reducing emissions", given that "a compressed natural gas truck powered by biomethane can reduce CO2 emissions even 95% (by measuring the so-called “well-to-wheel” cycle of CO2 or “from well to wheel”), thus effectively contributing to the decarbonization process ».
