Iveco España S.L. has two factories in Spain: Valladolid (Iveco Light Range) and Madrid (Iveco Heavy Range). In Madrid there is also an Engineering and Development centre with responsibility in NG trucks. The factory of Madrid manufactures the NG heavy truck Iveco Stralis with different models of CNG and LNG. Iveco has experimented with all the technologies considered ecological or alternatives to oil: biofuels, hydrogen, LPG, electric vehicles, etc. Iveco began experimenting with CNG buses and trucks in the year 1994 and in 1995 began mass production and has managed to settle on two specific market niches: buses and urban solid waste collection. Commercially, Iveco has verified that the use of CNG has its limitations for use on long distances because of its limited range; around 350 km. To solve this problem, since 2004, Iveco has been working on LNG truck prototypes, developing new technology that increases the autonomy of natural gas vehicles up to 800-900 km. In 2005 the first pilot truck was put into service and it has been working since then at full capacity, although it is used
for collecting solid waste. In 2010 a limited number of pilot LNG vehicles were introduced covering local services primarily in Spain and the Netherlands. In 2012 began the production in series of the Stralis LNG (330 CV). In the beginning of 2014 was launched the Euro VI version of this truck and a new version, adapted to the recently published amendments of the R-110 including LNG provisions, is presented at the NGV 20114 7th-10th of July in Brussels and will be manufactured before the end year.
