At the forthcoming IAA Truck Show in Hannover, Germany, in September, Iveco is set to unveil a number of innovations and new technology fitted in its vehicles to visitors at the show.
Centre stage will be taken by the new Iveco Daily, revealed in June (for a full report on the new van and the launch check out the September/October issue of Diesel Magazine). With 80 per cent of all its components redesigned, this is genuinely a New Daily. Also on show will be the major new components to included in the van, the new F1C engine, the new fully automatic HI-MATIC gearbox and the new Quad Leaf front suspension.
Also on show will be the Stralis Natural Power Euro 6 including a liquefied natural gas (LNG) engine. A new standard for LNG tank technology, UNECE 110, was introduced in the European Union in June this year, allowing LNG trucks to get approval to run on European roads. This could be the precursor to a substantial increase in the use of LNG on European highways.
Iveco will be displaying its new Euro 6 engine design, the HI-SCR (High Efficiency selective catalytic reduction). The design uses SCR only to control exhaust gas emissions without using either EGR or a diesel particulate filter. Iveco claim a reduction in fuel consumption of 2.33 per cent over the engine’s predecessor.
