FPT Industrial will supply 1,064 Cursor 13 Natural Gas engines to IVECO for the fleet of IVECO S-WAY CNG trucks to be delivered to Amazon.

Amazon has already taken delivery of the first batch of 216 units to be operated by its partners in Europe, and another 848 units are on order with deliveries to start in mid-2022.

Built in the WCM Gold-Level Plant in Bourbon-Lancy (France), FPT Industrial’s Cursor 13 NG engine represents the best low environmental impact alternative for long-range operations. Indeed, it was developed to satisfy demanding requirements in terms of performance and operating costs, but without compromising its endurance.

Based on cutting-edge technology and more than 20 years of experience with natural gas engines, the Cursor 13 NG provides diesel-like performance, a maximum power output of 460 HP @ 1,900 rpm and maximum torque of 2,000 Nm @ 1,100 rpm, thus offering 12% more power than the best competitors with the same technology.

The Cursor 13 NG can run on 100% CNG, LNG or biomethane, and uses stoichiometric combustion to ensure improved fuel economy and reduced noise levels compared to diesel, achieving up to 40% fuel savings. When fueled by biomethane, it can cut CO2 emissions by up to 95% using a well-to-wheel CO2 measurement approach, effectively contributing to the decarbonization process of long-haul commercial transport.
