Iveco and BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions have joined forces to offer preferential financing to transport operators purchasing Iveco’s environmentally-friendly commercial vehicles.

The Green Finance Schemes includes the Stralis NP 460, which can be powered by CNG, LNG and Biomethane.

Vehicles from Iveco’s Daily Blue Power range also come under the deal. This includes Daily Electric, a zero-emissions vehicle aimed at city deliveries; the Daily Euro 6 2020 RDE Ready, which runs on next-generation diesel that meets 2020 environmental targets; and the Daily Hi-Matic Natural Power, the first CNG light commercial vehicle with an 8-speed automatic gearbox.

The Eurocargo Natural Power, which has low emissions and a quiet operation, also qualifies for preferential financing under the scheme.

Pierre Lahutte, Iveco brand president, said: “Iveco has a long-standing commitment to sustainable transport. We have pioneered alternative traction technologies for over 20 years with the objective of providing our customers with vehicles that enable them to be more sustainable, while operating profitably.

“With the Green Finance schemes, we take our commitment a step further, by helping our customers’ energy transition as they make their fleets more environmentally-friendly. This initiative with BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions is testament to what can be achieved when two players from different industries join forces for such an important cause.”

Charlotte Dennery, CEO of BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions, said the move was part of the firm’s strategy to support the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

She added: “As the Group’s specialised entity in equipment finance, BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions is a natural partner to encourage companies to promote responsible equipment.”

The financing offer will be available in the UK via Iveco network dealers under the brand “Iveco Capital” by CNH Industrial Capital Europe, a joint financing company between CNH Industrial NV and BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions.
