IVECO and Petit Forestier present a Daily Blue Power NP Hi-Matic chassis cab with a refrigerated box entirely powered by the 3.0 litre Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) engine on IVECO’s Diesel-free/Low Emissions Area stand at the 2018 edition of the IAA Commercial Vehicles (IAA) exhibition.
The Daily Blue Power NP Hi-Matic is the first Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) light commercial vehicle with an 8-speed automatic gearbox in the industry. It delivers the robustness, performance and reliability that the Daily is known for, together with superior comfort and fuel economy and best-in-class driveability. It combines the absolute driving pleasure of its class-exclusive Hi-Matic transmission with IVECO’s sustainable Natural Gas technology to deliver diesel-free, low-emissions sustainable transport.
The Daily Blue Power NP Hi-Matic chassis cab is equipped with a refrigerated body developed by Lecapitaine. Refrigeration is ensured by a Carrier Pulsor electric motor powered by the vehicle’s CNG engine. This low-emissions refrigerated transport solution is achievable thanks to the outstanding performance of the 3.0L CNG engine delivering 136 hp and 350 Nm of torque.
