CNH Brand Supplies 109 Natural Gas Vehicles to City of Madrid

Iveco, a brand of CNH Industrial, was chosen as the truck manufacturer to supply 109 new urban waste collection vehicles, powered by natural gas engines, for the city of Madrid.

The 109 vehicles are Iveco Stralis models from the brand’s heavy on-road product portfolio, which are fitted with specially-designed collectors to gather and haul waste. They are manufactured exclusively in Madrid.

Fitted with Cursor 8 Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) engines, developed by CNH Industrial’s powertrain brand FPT Industrial, the environmentally-friendly vehicles can account for 95% less emissions than their diesel counterparts (35% less nitrogen oxides and 10% less carbon dioxide), equivalent to 85 tons every year. CNG combustion is less polluting than petrol and the majority of Iveco’s vehicles are also ready to run on this alternative fuel.

There are currently 43 public CNG refueling stations and 19 LNG stations in Spain, making it the largest provider of liquefied natural gas stations in Europe. A further nine mixed CNG/LNG stations are currently under development in the country.
