IVECO and CIFA present the world’s first bioCNG truck with electric hybrid concrete mixer


IVECO and CIFA broke new ground on IVECO’s Diesel-free/Low Emissions Area stand at the 2018 edition of the IAA Commercial Vehicles (IAA) exhibition with an industry first: the unique 400 hp Stralis X-WAY Natural Power equipped with a CIFA electric concrete mixer that offers a 100% zero Diesel, zero oil solution.
The vehicle runs on bioCNG and is equipped with the Energya hybrid plug-in concrete mixer developed by CIFA. The mixer is operated by an electric engine powered by a lithium battery. It also features a Kinetic Energy Recovery System that recovers the truck’s energy when it is decelerating. The bioCNG engine of the Stralis X-Way NP, coupled with the electric engine of the Energya concrete mixer deliver extremely low CO2 emissions and extra-quiet operation.
The truck is a Stralis X-WAY NP developed specifically for concrete mixer applications to deliver the best payload in the industry with best-in-class kerb weight. Equipped with the CIFA Energya hybrid plug-in concrete mixer and running on bioCNG, this vehicle is the demonstration that IVECO has the solution to deliver 100% diesel-free transport.
During the IAA exhibition, IVECO held an official ceremony on its stand for the handover of the first five Stralis X-WAY NP electric concrete mixer trucks to representatives of the leading European logistics operator Transports Perrenot.
CIFA develops and manufactures a full line of equipment for the production, transport and laying of concrete. A company driven by innovation, it consistently invests in research and development. Founded 90 years ago, it has sold over 60,000 concrete mixer trucks and truck mounted pumps across the world through its global distribution network.
