Daily Natural Power: the most ecological, the most economical
The Daily Natural Power is a natural gas vehicle with dual CNG / petrol power.
Designed and optimised for natural gas operation, if it runs out of fuel it automatically switches over to "recovery" petrol mode. It is available in 6 gross vehicle weight variations (from 3.5 t to 7 t for the chassis cab version and from 3.5 to 5.2 t for the van) and 3 body types: van, chassis cab and crew cab 6+1.
There are 6 wheelbases in all (from 3,300 mm to 3,950 mm for the van, from 3,450 mm to 4,750 mm for the chassis cab and from 4,100 mm for the crew cab version). The cargo area for the van varies from 12 to 17.2 m3.
Iveco is the only full-range manufacturer of light commercial and heavy commercial vehicles to offer a complete CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) range. The Iveco CNG vehicle line in Europe has already, mainly used for urban transport.
Natural gas (CNG) is one of the fuels of the future - but already today it represents an economical and ecological solution to mobility problems:
- in terms of fuel cost, it allows savings of about 20% compared to equivalent diesels;
- it has the least impact on the environment of any other internal combustion engine (total absence of sulphur, hydrocarbons and particulate in the exhaust and low CO2 emissions);
- it is quiet (about 5 db less than the equivalent diesel engine);
- above all, it is a safe fuel. The auto-ignition temperature is double when compared to diesel and petrol. The tanks are tested to withstand double the operating pressure. In the event of a leak, the gas disperses rapidly because it is lighter than air. Natural gas vehicles are allowed to enter underground parking garages, board ferries and above all (thanks to the extremely low emissions) circulate in restricted traffic areas (eg congestion zones).
The entire Iveco CNG range has obtained EEV (Environmentally-friendly Enhanced Vehicle) Directive approval and in fact emissions are even lower than Euro 6.
