BOOST: Better fuel economy for new Iveco
Iveco’s new Stralis Hi-Way Euro 6 enjoys a fuel consumption reduction of 2.33% compared to the outgoing Euro 5 model, TUV tests have confirmed.
The boost, according to Iveco, is achieved thanks to the innovative catalytic reduction system (HI-eSCR) and the enhanced aerodynamics of the new Hi-Way cab.
The tests compared a new Stralis Hi-Way tractor unit equipped with a 460hp Euro VI Cursor 11 engine with a previous-generation Stralis equipped with a 460hp Euro V Cursor 10 engine.
Both models were in EcoStralis configuration.
Lorenzo Sistino, Brand President of Iveco, said: “Today’s achievement is another important demonstration of the continued work by Iveco to reduce fuel consumption.
“This commitment has already allowed the EcoStralis Euro V model to obtain TUV certification with a reduction in fuel consumption of 7.32% compared to a standard Stralis from the same generation.”
