Irizar is to introduce coaches on Scania chassis powered by Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) and Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) into its range. It claims that the environmental benefits offered by coaches with this technology reduce CO2 emissions by between 20 and 25 per cent, NOx by up to 60 per cent and emissions of particulate matter by over 98 per cent.
The vehicles will have a range of up to 500km in the CNG version and twice as far with LNG technology.
The range of gas vehicles will include the Irizar i4 and Irizar i3le models from 12 to 15 metres in CNG version and Irizar i4, Irizar i6 and Irizar i6S from12 to 15 metres in the LNG version, all on Scania chassis.
The first vehicle equipped with this technology is a 12.9m Irizar i4 version H on a Scania K320 EB 4X2 E6D CNG chassis.
