Iveco boss puts hydrogen on back-burner

Date: Wednesday, November 12, 2008

Hopes that vans will eventually run on hydrogen are misplaced says Iveco chief executive officer, Paolo Monferino. “Long-hailed as the renewable fuel of the future and able to provide zero tail pipe emissions, hydrogen power does not seem any nearer to a reality than it was 20 years ago,” he contends.


Instead, Iveco is introducing Daily vans that will run on compressed natural gas, as diesel/electric hybrids or on battery power alone. “Ten dieselelectrics have already been delivered to a major operator on an extended trial,” he says.
