Iveco Bus announced it has won an order to supply 409 Urbanway Natural Power (NP) buses to the Parisian Transport Authority, Ile-de-France Mobilités. The buses will be deployed on a public transport network which covers both the inner and outer suburbs of the Paris Region.
The order is the result of a partnership between Iveco Bus, a brand of CNH Industrial N.V., Ile-de-France Mobilités and CATP (French Public Transport Central Purchasing Office). Iveco Bus will deliver the biogas-powered vehicles between 2020 and 2021. The Urbanway NP reportedly has a range of up to 400 km and are powered by a six-cylinder Cursor 8 engine.
Fueled by biomethane derived from recycled organic waste, the Urbanway NP is designed to deliver a range of environmental benefits, noise reduction and improved air quality, Iveco Bus said. Fine particle emissions are reduced to almost zero and NOx emissions by more than a third. Iveco Bus said the Urbanway’s natural gas engine also cuts noise level by 50%
