CNH Industrial NV (NYSE: CNHI / MI: CNHI) marks an important step in its promotion of natural gas commercial vehicles through a new collaboration with the Italian arm of multinational supermarket chain Lidl (Lidl Italia).
Starting in 2015, Lidl Italia will operate the largest natural gas fleet in all of Italy through its nationwide network of 570 sales points. This will be accomplished through the circulation of 15 Iveco Stralis Natural Power LNG (liquefied natural gas) trucks. The trucks are equipped with Cursor 8 LNG Euro VI engines manufactured by FPT Industrial, CNH Industrial’s powertrain brand.
Implementation of this LNG fleet is managed by LC3, a temperature-controlled transport logistics specialist. The 15 vehicles destined for Lidl Italia are part of a supply of 50 Stralis LNG vehicles that Iveco is delivering to LC3.
LNG, considered one of the cleanest fuels on the market, provides advantages for fleets in terms of environmental sustainability and operator profitability. With respect to diesel, natural gas significantly reduces a vehicle’s overall impact on its surrounding environment (95% less particulate emissions, 35% lower nitrogen oxide emissions, and a 10% reduction in CO2 emissions) and carries much lower costs, 20% less in comparison.
